Recruitment Privacy Notice
As part of any recruitment process, Nagwa collects and processes personal data relating to job applicants. Nagwa is committed to being transparent about how it collects and uses that data and to meeting its data protection obligations.
What information does Nagwa collect?
Nagwa collects a range of information about you. This includes:
- your name, address and contact details, including email address and telephone number;
- details of your qualifications, skills, experience and employment history;
- information about the date you applied, email correspondence, writing sample assessment, comments and rating;
- whether or not you have a disability for which Nagwa needs to make reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process; and
- information about your entitlement to work in the UK.
Nagwa collects this information in a variety of ways. For example, data might be contained in application forms, CVs or resumes, obtained from your passport or other identity documents, or collected through interviews or other forms of assessment, including online tests.
Nagwa will also collect personal data about you from third parties, such as references supplied by former employers, information from employment background check providers and information from criminal records checks. Nagwa will seek information from third parties only once a job offer to you has been made and will inform you that it is doing so.
Data will be stored in a range of different places, including on your application record, in HR management systems and on other IT systems (including email).
Why does Nagwa process personal data?
Nagwa needs to process data to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you. It also needs to process your data to enter into a contract with you.
In some cases, Nagwa needs to process data to ensure that it is complying with its legal obligations. For example, it is required to check a successful applicant's eligibility to work in the UK before employment starts.
Nagwa has a legitimate interest in processing personal data during the recruitment process and for keeping records of the process. Processing data from job applicants allows Nagwa to manage the recruitment process, assess and confirm a candidate's suitability for employment and decide to whom to offer a job. Nagwa may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to and defend against legal claims.
Where Nagwa relies on legitimate interests as a reason for processing data, it has considered whether or not those interests are overridden by the rights and freedoms of employees or workers and has concluded that they are not.
Nagwa processes health information if it needs to make reasonable adjustments to the recruitment process for candidates who have a disability. This is to carry out its obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
Where Nagwa processes other special categories of data, such as information about ethnic origin, sexual orientation, health or religion or belief, this is for equal opportunities monitoring purposes.
For some roles, Nagwa is obliged to seek information about criminal convictions and offences. Where Nagwa seeks this information, it does so because it is necessary for it to carry out its obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
Nagwa will not use your data for any purpose other than the recruitment exercise for which you have applied.
If your application is unsuccessful, Nagwa may keep your personal data on file in case there are future employment opportunities for which you may be suited. Nagwa will ask for your consent before it keeps your data for this purpose and you are free to withdraw your consent at any time.

How does Nagwa protect data?

If you agree to allow Nagwa to keep your personal data on file, Nagwa will hold your data on file for 6 months for consideration for future employment opportunities.

As a data subject, you have a number of rights. You can:
- access and obtain a copy of your data on request;
- require Nagwa to change incorrect or incomplete data;

- object to the processing of your data where Nagwa is relying on its legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing; and
- ask Nagwa to stop processing data for a period if data is inaccurate or there is a dispute about whether or not your interests override Nagwa's legitimate grounds for processing data.
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please email Paula Dixon at email@example.com. You can make a subject access request by completing Nagwa's form for making a subject access request.
If you believe that Nagwa has not complied with your data protection rights, you can complain to the Information Commissioner.
