When you contact us by email, phone or otherwise to apply for a vacancy or send us your CV, we will collect personal data from you, as more particularly set out below in the section entitled “What kind of personal data do we collect from you”.

Sometimes recruitment agencies and educational institutions will send us CVs or other information about candidates they think might be suitable for a role with us.
Information we obtain from public sources
Sometimes we will look to public sources to find information about potential candidates for job roles within EIDO.
What kind of personal information do we collect from you?
We will make sure that we only collect the minimum information we need from you at each stage of this process. If you or any third party (e.g. a recruitment agent) provides us with information that is irrelevant or excessive, we will dispose of it securely and will not keep a copy.
If you decide to apply for a position, we will need to collect and process Personal Information, including (without limitation):
At application stage we will collect the following information:
- name, address, postcode and e-mail address.

The information we need to collect to confirm eligibility to work might include a copy of your passport, work visa, P45, national insurance card, utility bill or proof of address.
How will we use the personal information we hold about you?
Personal Information you provide to us will be used to:
- process your application.
- consider you for the position you have applied for, and any upcoming vacancies that are suitable (if you have opted in to be contacted in respect of subsequent vacancies).
- fulfil our legal obligations including (without limitation) to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us to provide you with information that you request from us.
- provide general information (which does not identify individuals) and statistics to help us develop our processes.
- make up part of your personnel records if your application is successful. However, this will only be for as long as it is relevant to your employment.
- approach your nominated referees for the purposes of obtaining references; and
- carry out equal opportunities monitoring (see below).
Where you provide personal data about somebody else, like your referees, you should always ask them beforehand to get their consent.
We are required by law to make basic documentation checks on every candidate invited for interview. Please note that we will ask you to provide evidence of your eligibility to work in the UK.
Such evidence might include your passport, national insurance card, driving licence, proof of address, a UK work visa, a P45 or a combination of these.
Other Personal Information, for example, relating to your gender, race or ethnic origin, religion or belief, age bracket, details of any disability and sexual orientation will be requested for the purpose of monitoring.
This Personal Information is requested purely for monitoring purposes.
How long will we keep your personal information for?
We will keep Personal Information for no longer than 12 months after receiving your application and where we do not take you forward to interview stage. If you proceed to interview we will keep your Personal Information for 12 months from interview unless you are successful in which case your Personal Information will be transferred to our HR Team who will retain it in line with our HR Retention Policy. We will also give you the opportunity to request that we keep your CV on file for consideration for future roles.
Who do we share your personal information with?
We will share your Personal Information with third parties, including third-party service providers. We require that any third parties we share personal data with, respect the security of your Personal Information and treat it in accordance with the law.

The lawful basis on which we handle your personal information
Data protection law sets out a number of conditions which organisations can rely on in order to lawfully handle personal information. The conditions we rely on are as follows: -
The law permits us to handle your Personal Information where necessary in our legitimate interests provided that this isn’t outweighed by your interests. Many of the purposes we handle your Personal Information, described above, fall into this category as they are essential activities which enable us to manage our recruitment process, to improve our processes. We may, if necessary, also use your Personal Information to defend our legal rights or to obtain legal advice and to manage any complaint that you might have. We ensure that your rights and interests are protected when we do this.
We are permitted to use your Personal Information when you give us your consent for us to do so. For example, if you ask us to keep you informed about future vacancies when they arise.
Required by law
We will, if required by law, disclose your Personal Information for example in response to a court order. We will disclose your Personal Information if requested by a law enforcement agency or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or as otherwise permitted or required by law and consistent with legal requirements.
Where we store personal information
