Data protection - job and volunteering opportunities

If you apply to work at the Horniman Museum and Gardens, we will only use the information you give us to process your application and to monitor recruitment statistics.

If we want to disclose information to someone outside the Horniman- e.g., if we need a reference, plan to use an external supplier to run background checks, need to get a 'disclosure' from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) or check that you are legally entitled to work in the UK - we will make sure we tell you beforehand, unless we are prevented from disclosing this information by law.

If you apply for a job or volunteering opportunity we will also collect information so we can assess your suitability for the role.

If you are unsuccessful in your job application, we will hold the information from your application for nine months after we've finished recruiting the post you applied for. Volunteering applications will be held for six months. After this date we will destroy or delete your information.

You may delete the account you set up on the recruitment website at any time. Your account will automatically delete if you do not log in for 365 days.

If you begin employment or volunteering with us, we will put together a file about your employment or volunteering. We keep the information in this file secure, and will only use it for matters that apply directly to your employment or volunteering role.

Once you stop working or volunteering for us, we will keep this file according to our Data retention guidelines.
