This information will come from information you provide to us, for example, in an application form, or your CV, from your referees (from whom we will obtain information concerning your employment history) and the Disclosure and Barring Service in respect of criminal convictions.
We use your personal data for these purposes:
The lawful basis for processing this data will be our legitimate interests in considering your application. In some cases, the processing of your data will also be necessary for us to comply with legal and regulatory requirements. We will also use information about your disability status to consider whether we need to make adjustments during the recruitment process or (if you are successful in your application), thereafter.
Criminal Records: Offers of employment will be subject to references and (where appropriate to the role) carrying out a criminal record check. We are entitled to carry out a criminal records check to comply with regulatory requirements (and industry best practice) and in order to satisfy ourselves that you are suitable for the role, as roles within Foxtons require a high degree of trust (as staff meet clients in their homes, drive applicants to viewings and deal with property, keys and money on behalf of clients and applicants).
Failing to provide information: If you fail to provide information necessary to your application (such as evidence of qualifications), we will not be able to process your application successfully. We will assume that the information you provide is accurate.
We may disclose or share your personal information with group companies or our service providers in order to process your application. They are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information and process your personal data only for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
We are, through technical and organisational means, committed to ensuring the security of, and prevention of unauthorised access to, your personal data. For example, we limit who can access your personal data to those individuals and third parties who need to know it and who are subject to a duty of confidentiality. If we become aware of a data breach we will, where we are required to, notify the Information Commissioner's Office. If we believe that the data breach is serious, we may notify you as well.
If your application is unsuccessful, we will retain your personal information for a period of 6 months after we have informed you of our decision so that we can show that we have not discriminated against candidates on prohibited grounds. We will retain your personal data on our file for a further period of 18 months after we have informed you of our decision so that we can consider you for future Foxtons vacancies.
