The information you supply in your user account and application will only be used to shortlist and select for each position you apply for.

If you are successful in your application, your application and equal opportunities information will form part of your manual and computerised personal file and your personal data will be used for employment and payroll processing purposes. This information will be retained in accordance with the council’s retention and disposal schedule.

For candidates who are not successful in their application, the information is usually kept for a period of one year after the closing date and then destroyed.

Only aggregated, anonymised data from the Equal Opportunities Monitoring section is kept after that period to enable effective monitoring to take place.
