How we use the data that we collect

We use the information we obtain as part of recruitment in each of the following ways:

What we use it for

Our reasons

Our lawful basis

Acknowledging your application (by whatever route or means)

To ensure that we meet are able to let you know that we’ve received your interest in working for our group and are considering it.

Legitimate Interests

Review and consider your application (by whatever route or means)

To enable us to assess your suitability for the role, or a role, within the group.

Where you’ve applied through a Recruitment Agent or third party, this may involve us liaising or discussing the merits of your application with them.

Legitimate Interests

Communicate with you, a Recruitment Agency or other third party involved in your application

We may need to communicate directly with you or these parties for administration reasons connected with your application (e.g. arranging interviews and travel arrangements) or to communicate decisions taken in respect of your application.

Legitimate Interests

Interviewing you

During any interview process we will refer to, and rely on, information that you’ve provided or that we’ve received in relation to your application.

Legitimate Interests

Carrying out pre-employment checks and other administration

Prior to joining the group, we may require you to carry out certain checks with third parties and to pass the results of those checks to us. These will be maintained in accordance with our employment privacy policy. These checks may include those designed to protect our business or that of our customers (e.g. Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) or Disclosure Scotland). Where we ask you to provide such a search we won’t share the results with other potential employers and will abide by the relevant body’s code of practice in respect of handling the information.

Legitimate Interests

Keeping you informed of future roles

If you’ve asked us to do so, we may keep you informed directly of any future roles that become available that we consider relevant to your experience. We may also notify third parties (such as Recruitment Agents) of vacancies and they may then choose to contact you.

Consent, Legitimate Interests

Exercising our rights

We may need to process certain information (including personal data) in order to exercise or enforce our rights under this and any other relevant policies.

Legitimate Interests, Legal obligation

Responding to and actioning any request by you in exercising your legal rights in relation to your personal data

Processing may be required to provide confirmation of information to you (e.g. if you make a data subject access or data portability request) or in order to action a request that you make (e.g. correction, deletion, erasure or restriction).

Our reasons

Our lawful basis

Employees and contractors of other companies within our group

We share your personal data with those most relevant to the role that you have applied for, or are seeking, to enable them to be involved in the potential recruitment process.

This may involve the transfer of your personal data to other territories and outside the country you’re resident or located in.

Legitimate Interests

Recruitment agencies

Where you’ve applied through a Recruitment Agency, we may share details of your application, its merits and success or failure with them (together with opinions such as our reasoning for any decisions taken).

Legitimate Interests

Third parties

If you’ve provided us with information about a referee, or have made claims in respect of certain qualifications, we may disclose the existence and nature of your application (and its status) to those third parties in order to obtain a reference or validate your qualification.

Legitimate Interests

Those involved in interviewing

Sometimes we may use third parties in our interview process, where this is the case for the role or application you’ve made, you’ll be made aware of it prior to the interview and we may share details of your application with that third party for the purpose of the interview.

Legitimate Interests

Legitimate Interests

If you provide us with information about others

If you provide information and personal details about others (such as a referee), you confirm that they are happy for you to do so and for us to contact them at the appropriate stage of your application.

Who we may share your information with, and sending information outside the country you’re located in

To operate our group effectively we use shared systems, resources and sub-processors and so the information that we collect may be transferred, shared and processed within our group and to and by these third-parties. They are only authorised to use your personal information as necessary to provide the services to us that we request from them and must abide by data privacy and security obligations set out in applicable law.

Record maintenance: We use a third party – Recruitive Limited, to provide a platform through which we are able to easily manage and track applications to work within our group. More information about it can be found at

Group companies: If you apply for a role within a group company located outside of the territory that you’re currently resident in, you acknowledge that it may be necessary for us to share your personal data with those members of our group (and other third parties as set out above in who we can disclose your data to). These individuals may be located outside the country you’re resident in.

Transfer of rights: We reserve the right to transfer our obligations, rights and permissions in the data that you provide or that we collect to any organisation to which we may transfer our business or assets (including if we, or a relevant part of us or our assets, are proposed to be purchased or acquired by a third party).

Selling your information: We will not, and do not, sell your information for valuable consideration (as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act). Your information may be shared with third parties as set out above for our business purposes.

What we need you to do

We need to make sure that the information that we hold about you is accurate, up-to-date and still relevant. As a result, we need you to tell us promptly if there are any changes to the information that you’ve provided by letting us know at

How long we'll keep your and your users information for

We’ll keep information that you provide to us as a result of an application (by whatever route or means) for a period of 12 months (unless you have a current job application in process with us). If you’re successful in your application, when you become an employee or contractor of our group, your personal data will be held in accordance with our Employment Privacy Policy – details of which will be made available to you at the appropriate time.
