Lumesse TalentLink and Southwark Council will use your information for the purposes of administering the services in connection with this site.
We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use your data.
The information that you provide on your online application form and that obtained from other relevant sources will be used to process your application for employment with Southwark Council.
Where Southwark processes other special categories of data, such as information about ethnic origin or disability, this is done for equal opportunities monitoring purposes and is anonymised when collated for reporting. The personal information that you give us will also be used in a confidential manner to help us to monitor our recruitment process.
If you succeed in your application and take up employment with the Council, the information will be used in the administration of your employment with us and to provide you with information about the Council.
We may also use the information if there is a complaint or legal challenge relevant to this recruitment process.
Southwark council will not share your data with third parties, unless your application for employment is successful and it makes you an offer of employment. We may then share your data with former employers to obtain references for you, occupational health providers and the Disclosure and Barring Service to obtain any necessary criminal record checks.
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 period of employment. The periods for which your data will be held will be provided to you in a new privacy notice.
Personal data will be processed fairly and lawfully in adherence to Data Protection legislation.
Southwark 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.
However, the internet is an open system and neither Lumesse TalentLink nor Southwark Council can and do guarantee that the personal information you have submitted will not be intercepted by others and decrypted.
