We collect personal data concerning our staff and those applying for Acts 29 roles on the basis of contract and legal obligation as part of the administration, management and coordination of our Acts 29 activities. Staff should refer to the organisational handbook for further details.
When individuals apply to work at Acts 29, we will only use the personal information they supply to us to process their application and to monitor recruitment statistics. Where we want to disclose information to a third-party, for example where we want to take up a reference or obtain a background check from the UK Criminal Records Bureau, we will not do so without informing them beforehand, unless the disclosure is required by law.
Personal information about unsuccessful candidates will be held for one year from the recruitment decision to enable an evaluated response should a challenge be made under the equality legislation.
Once a person has taken up employment with Acts 29, a personnel file will be set up relating to their employment. The personal data contained in this will be kept securely and will only be used for purposes directly relevant to that person’s employment. Once their employment with Acts 29 has ended, we will retain the file in line with that country’s recommended retention schedule after which any data not required by statute will be deleted.
