As part of any recruitment process NWF collects and processes personal data relating to job applicants. NWF is committed to being transparent about how it collects and uses that data and to meeting its data protection obligations.
NWF collects a range of information about you. This includes:
NWF collects 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 where appropriate.
NWF will also collect personal data about you from third parties, such as references supplied by former employers, information from employment background check providers. NWF 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 (Cornerstone) in HR management systems and on other IT systems (including email).
NWF needs to process data to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you. It also needs to process your data to enter into a contract with you.
In some cases, NWF 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.
NWF 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 NWF to manage the recruitment process, assess and confirm a candidate's suitability for employment and decide to whom to offer a job. NWF may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to and defend against legal claims.
Where NWF relies on legitimate interests as a reason for processing data, it has considered whether or not those interests are overridden by the rights and freedoms of employees or workers and has concluded that they are not.
NWF processes health information if it needs to make reasonable adjustments to the recruitment process for candidates who have a disability. This is to carry out its obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
If your application is unsuccessful, NWF will keep your personal data on file in case there are future employment opportunities for which you may be suited.
Your information will 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.
NWF will not share your data with third parties unless your application for employment is successful and it makes you an offer of employment. NWF will then share your data with former employers to obtain references for you, employment background check providers to obtain necessary background checks, and the Disclosure and Barring Service to obtain necessary criminal records checks.
NWF will not transfer your data outside the European Economic Area.
NWF 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.
If your application for employment is unsuccessful, NWF will hold your data on file for 12 months after the end of the relevant recruitment process. If you agree to allow NWF to keep your personal data on file, NWF will hold your data on file for a further 12 months for consideration for future employment opportunities. This process will be repeated annually or until the point that you withdraw your consent, at which point your personal data is removed from our database.
If your application for employment is successful, personal data gathered during the recruitment process will be transferred to your personnel file and retained during your employment. The periods for which your data will be held will be provided to you in a new privacy notice.
You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide data to NWF during the recruitment process. However, if you do not provide the information, NWF may not be able to process your application properly or at all.
Recruitment processes are not based solely on automated decision-making.
