It is in our legitimate interests to decide whether to appoint you to work for the organisation since it would be beneficial to our business to appoint someone to the roles which we have advertised at any given time. We also need to process your personal information to decide whether to enter into a contract of employment or a contract for services with you.
Having received the information you have provided to us as part of the application process, we will then process that information to decide whether you meet the basic requirements to be shortlisted for the role. If you do, we will decide whether your application is strong enough to invite you for an interview or assessment centre or online testing tool.
If we decide to call you for an interview or an assessment, we will use the information you provide to us at the interview and any assessment centre or online testing to decide whether to offer you the role. If we decide to offer you the role, we will then take up references, carry out a criminal record if applicable and carry out any other pre-recruitment we need to do before confirming your appointment.
If you are unsuccessful in obtaining employment, we will seek your consent to retaining your data in case other suitable job vacancies arise in TSC Foods for which we think you may wish to apply.

As with all cases of seeking consent from you, you will have full control over your decision to give or withhold consent and there will be no consequences where consent is withheld. Consent, once given, may be withdrawn at any time and there will be no consequences where consent is withdrawn
Criminal Conviction Data
We will only collect criminal conviction data where it is appropriate given the nature of your role and where the law permits us. This data will usually be collected at the recruitment stage, however, may also be collected during your employment should you be successful in obtaining employment.
Failure to Provide your Data to Us
One of the reasons for processing your data is to allow us to carry out an effective recruitment process. Whilst you are under no obligation to provide us with your data, we may not able to process, or continue with (as appropriate), your application.
