Recruitment and employee privacy notice

Retention

We will retain your data during the recruitment and selection process.

We will only retain your data afterwards if there is a legal obligation to do so (for example, for the purposes of administering the employment relationship). We may also retain your data if there is a ‘business need’, for example, retaining your application on file if a suitable vacancy arises, or for the purpose of responding to employment tribunal claims arising out of the recruitment process.

For unsuccessful candidates, the application data will be retained for a maximum period of 12 months from the date of the application registration, and for appointed applicants your application and other information, including pre-employment information will form part of your employee file held by the Council.
