Bell Educational Services (referred to herein as “we” and “us”) welcomes job applications from individuals. In order to process the job applications received, it is necessary for us to collect, use, retain and otherwise process the personal data (and any sensitive personal data) provided by job applicants. Our processing of your personal data is covered by the Data Protection Act 1998 and this notice sets out how we will process your personal data if submitted to us for this purpose. It is important that you read this notice fully. Should you have any questions or if you wish to make a subject access request, please do let us know by contacting Graham Swales, Head of Human Resources.
"Personal data” means information which relates to a living individual who can be identified from that information, whether or not in conjunction with other information. Common examples include, name, address, and contact details.
“Sensitive personal data” means information relating to your physical or mental health, the commission or alleged commission of any offence by you and any proceedings for such an offence (including the outcome or sentence in such proceedings), your political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, sexual life or your membership of a Trade Union. Unless necessary and relevant to your job application, we would ask that you do not provide us with sensitive personal data about yourself in your application.
By submitting a job application to us you are providing your voluntary consent to us processing, both manually and by electronic means, all personal and sensitive personal data submitted by you within your application, curriculum vitae, covering letter and any other ancillary materials provided with your application.
We will process your personal data (including sensitive personal data, where applicable) for the purposes of the administration and management of your job application and, where an application is successful, to the additional extent required to progress your placement in that role. In addition, we will process your personal data, where required, to obtain suitable references and undertake any required verification of the information you have provided to us.
We will treat your personal data and sensitive personal data as confidential and will not use or process it other than for the legitimate purposes set out above.
Please note that if it is clear that the role you are applying for is located outside the EEA, we will transfer your personal and/or sensitive personal data to the relevant overseas entity to deal with your application. If it is not clear whether you are applying for an overseas role, we will not transfer your personal data outside the EEA for this purpose without asking for your consent in advance.
Please note that some of our service providers may be based in a country or territory outside the UK, including in jurisdictions outside the European Economic Area.
Where an application is successful we will retain your personal data (and any sensitive personal data) for the purposes of finalising your offer of employment and for the purposes of the administration and management of your employment unless required by law, or unless otherwise permitted in accordance with local laws. If your application is unsuccessful, we will retain your personal and sensitive personal data for the purpose of sending you updates on suitable career opportunities unless otherwise requested.
Please note that upon submission of your application, you will be sent an automated response confirming receipt of your application. Please retain this automated response for future reference.
