Candidate Privacy Notice
Data controller: The Anvil Group (International) Ltd of Vicarage House, 58-60 Kensington Church Street, London W8 4DB. (‘the Employer’)
As part of any recruitment process, the Employer collects and processes personal data relating to job applicants. The Employer is committed to being transparent about how it collects and uses that data and to meeting its data protection obligations.
What information does the Employer collect?
The Employer collects a range of information about you. This includes:
- your name, address and contact details, including email address and telephone number;
- details of your qualifications, skills, experience and employment history;
- information about your current level of remuneration, including benefit entitlements;
- whether or not you have a disability for which the Employer needs to make reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process; and
- information about your entitlement to work in the UK.
The Employer may collect this information in a variety of ways. For example, data might be contained in application forms, CVs or resumes, obtained from your passport or other identity documents, or collected through interviews or other forms of assessment, including online tests.
The Employer may also collect personal data about you from third parties, such as references supplied by former employers The Employer will seek information from third parties only once a job offer to you has been made and will inform you that it is doing so. Data will be stored in a range of different places, including on your application record, in HR management systems and on other IT systems (including email).
Why does the Employer process personal data?
The Employer needs to process data to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you. It may also need to process your data to enter into a contract with you.
In some cases, the Employer needs to process data to ensure that it is complying with its legal obligations. For example, it is required to check a successful applicant’s eligibility to work in the UK before employment starts.
The Employer has a legitimate interest in processing personal data during the recruitment process and for keeping records of the process. Processing data from job applicants allows the Employer to manage the recruitment process, assess and confirm a candidate’s suitability for employment and decide to whom to offer a job. The Employer may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to and defend against legal claims.
The Employer may process special categories of data, such as information about ethnic origin, sexual orientation or religion or belief, to monitor recruitment statistics. It may also collect information about whether or not applicants are disabled to make reasonable adjustments for candidates who have a disability. The Employer processes such information to carry out its obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
In line with GDPR requirements, we will no longer retain the CVs of unsuccessful candidates. Therefore, should you see a similar position advertised by Anvil in the future, we encourage you to apply again with an updated CV.
Who has access to data?
Your information may be shared internally for the purposes of the recruitment exercise. This includes members of the HR and recruitment team, interviewers involved in the recruitment process, managers in the business area with a vacancy and IT staff if access to the data is necessary for the performance of their roles. The Employer will not share your data with third parties, unless your application for employment is successful and it makes you an offer of employment. The Employer will then share your data with former employers to obtain references for you. The Employer will not transfer your data outside of the EU without your specific consent to do so.
How does the Employer protect data?
The Employer takes the security of your data seriously. It has internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, and is not accessed except by our employees in the proper performance of their duties.
For how long does the Employer keep data?
The Employer will only keep your data for as long as they need it for, which, in relation to unsuccessful candidates, is six months to a year. If your application is not successful and they have not sought consent or you have not provided consent upon their request to keep your data for the purpose of future suitable job vacancies, the Employer will keep your data for six months once the recruitment exercise ends.
If the Employer has sought your consent to keep your data on file for future job vacancies, and you have provided consent, they will keep your data for nine months once the recruitment exercise ends. At the end of this period, we will delete or destroy your data, unless you have already withdrawn your consent to our processing of your data in which case it will be deleted or destroyed upon your withdrawal of consent.
Where you have provided consent to the Employer’s use of your data, you also have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. This means that they will stop processing your data and there will be no consequences of withdrawing consent. If your application is successful, your data will be kept and transferred to the systems the Employer administers for employees. You will then be provided with a separate privacy notice for employees.
As a data subject, you have a number of rights. You can:
- access and obtain a copy of your data on request;
- require the Employer to change incorrect or incomplete data;
- require the Employer to delete or stop processing your data, for example where the data is no longer necessary for the purposes of processing; and
- object to the processing of your data where the Employer is relying on its legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing.
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact the HR Department via email. (HRChristchurch@anvilgroup.com)
If you believe that the Employer has not complied with your data protection rights, you can complain to the Information Commissioner.
What if you do not provide personal data?
You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide data to the Employer during the recruitment process. However, if you do not provide the information, the Employer may not be able to process your application properly or at all.
Recruitment processes are not based solely on automated decision-making.
