Privacy notice for job applicants
As part of our application and recruitment process Resolve IT Solutions Ltd collects, processes and stores personal information about applicants. This Privacy Notice outlines what information we collect, why we collect it and how we ensure we are meeting our data protection obligations.
Who are we?
We are Resolve IT Solutions Ltd (referred to as “Resolve”, “we”, “our” or “us” throughout this Privacy Notice). We are a limited company registered in England and Wales (registered number 05721052) and our registered office is Nursery Works, Little London Road, Sheffield S8 0UJ.
What personal data do we collect?
For the purposes of your application and the recruitment process, Resolve collects certain personal data from individuals who apply for roles with Resolve (referred to as “you” or “your” in this Privacy Notice), specifically:
This data may be collected through the job application forms, CVs, pre interview assessments, telephone interviews and interviews in person.
Why does Resolve collect job applicants’ personal data?
Resolve needs to collect, process and store personal data in order to conduct the recruitment process. The purposes and legal bases for collecting this data are outlined below.
Resolve 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 us to manage the recruitment process, assess and confirm a candidate's suitability for a role and decide to whom to offer a job. We may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to and defend against legal claims.
In some cases, we need to process data to ensure that we are complying with our legal obligations. For example, it is required to check a successful applicant's eligibility to work in the UK.
We will not use your data for any purpose other than recruiting for the position for which you have applied, unless you give us consent to contact you about future employment opportunities for which you may be suited. You can withdraw your consent at any time by emailing email@example.com.
CVs that are sent speculatively via email and through the prospective job application form may also be kept on file for future roles.
Who is your personal data shared with?
Your information will be shared internally for the purposes of the recruitment process. This includes members of staff involved in the recruitment process, typically the recruitment manager, managers in the area for which we are recruiting, and some IT and business support staff as needed to prepare for the interview.
Third-party web form
We will not share your data with third parties unless your application for employment is successful and we make you an offer of employment. In that instance Resolve may then share your data with former employers to obtain references for you.
Resolve will not transfer your data outside the European Economic Area.
Keeping your personal data safe
We value your privacy and the protection of your data. We have internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your personal data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, and is not accessed except by our employees in the proper performance of their duties
Data retention, correction and deletion
If your application is successful, personal data gathered as part of the recruitment process will be transferred to your HR file and retained during your employment, and a new privacy notice will be provided to you as an employee.
If your application for employment is unsuccessful, the organisation will hold your data on file for 24 months after the end of the relevant recruitment process. Your data is deleted at the end of that period, or earlier if you contact us requesting us to delete it.
Inaccurate or out-of-date information can be amended by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes to this Privacy Notice
This Privacy Notice may be updated periodically in line with new processes or requirements.
