Our Legal Basis for Processing

We collect and process your personal data with your consent. You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide us with the requested data. If you choose not to provide us with this information, we may be unable to process your application.

How We Use Personal Data

We will use your personal data to process your application for employment. We process candidate data to assess and confirm a candidate’s suitability for the available role. We can then progress the employment application by inviting selected candidates to an interview. We need to process this data prior to entering into a contract with you. In some cases, we may need to process your data to enter into a contract with you.

We may need to process data to ensure we are complying with out legal obligations. For example, during the recruitment stage we are required to check a candidate’s eligibility to work in the UK before an offer of employment can be made.

We may process special category data, with the candidate’s consent, regarding medical history. This does not form part of the decision-making process regarding your potential employment. We ask for this information to check candidates can undertake functions intrinsic to the role, such as manual handling, which, if it could not be performed, would mean the role could not be carried out.

We do not apply automated-decision making to your data.

How Long We Will Hold Personal Data

We will retain the data of candidates who pass the recruitment & selection stages under the company’s General Data Protection Policy. Details of this policy will be made available during the induction period after an offer of employment has been made.

We will retain the applications and data of potential/unsuccessful candidates for a period of 6 months following receival of the application. This includes any unsolicited CV’s that have been sent to us. After this, we will destroy all data regarding the application following the appropriate procedures to minimise risk of unwanted disclosure. You can object to processing by contacting the office on 01942 603 101, sending an email to or visiting our Leigh office.

We will not share personal data with any third parties, but may do so where:

  • There is an issue that puts the safety of our staff at risk

Where we are legally required to do so we will share personal data with law enforcement and government bodies. This includes reasons for:
