Data we collect and process about you

This Privacy Notice covers any candidate data you submit to Camelot during the recruitment process, including, but not limited to, the following information:

For the avoidance of doubt, Camelot does not wish to receive any confidential or proprietary information which you have received from your previous employers.

For what purpose will your data be used?

The personal data you provide in your application and during the recruitment process will only be held and processed to facilitate the selection process and in connection with any subsequent employment. Your personal data may be used to assess your employment application, to verify your information, to conduct reference checks, to communicate with you, and to inform you of further career opportunities. Should your application result in a job offer and should you accept that offer, the data collected will become part of your employment record and will be used for employment purposes.

Who can access your data?

Only selected employees of Camelot – such as management team members, potential future line managers or HR staff – and selected third parties supporting the recruitment process have access to your personal data. Except as set out in this policy or as required by law, your personal data will not be supplied to any third party without your explicit authorisation.

Data retention

Your personal data shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for the recruitment process. Camelot may retain and use your application data to consider you for other positions, for a maximum period of 12 months.

Should you not want Camelot to consider you for future positions, please let your recruitment representative know and Camelot will delete all of your data.

If your application has been successful and you are hired, the corresponding application data will be used in connection with your employment consistent with data protection policies.

Camelot will handle job application data in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom and Ireland. Where the law provides less protection than this privacy notice, Camelot will handle your data in accordance with this notice. As your data controller, Camelot has registered with the ‘Information Commissioner’s Office’ as required under the Data Protection Act 1998 and is listed in the ‘Data Protection Public Register’. Personal information will only be collected and/or processed in accordance with this Act and the General Data Protection Regulation.
