    Question : How do we protect your information?

    Category : Applications

    Answer :

    In compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 the information contained in your application is used to shortlist and select for each position you apply for. If you are sucessful 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. 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 collated, anonymised data from the Equal Opportunities Monitoring section is kept after that period to enable effective monitoring to take place.  In a small number of cases we are required to keep recruitment information longer than one year, until informed by the UK Border Agency that it can be destroyed.

    By completing and submitting an application, you consent to East Midlands Railway processing such personal data as may be necessary for the proper administration of its recruitment and selection processes.
