2. Employers and Recruiters

(2.1) Your responsibilities to a candidate’s personal information
In the capacity of data processor, Red / Redcurrant fully abides by the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and has received consent from each of the candidates to process their data and to have their personally identifiable information made available to named employers and recruiters for recruitment purposes. 
Contact with a candidate should be strictly via the recruitment agency during the interview process and only at the stage of formal job offer and acceptance of that offer, will the candidate’s personal contact information be provided.  This information is provided to the company on the basis that they will become the employer of the candidate and will therefore legally require their personal information.  You must not use this personal data for any other reason than that of employment.  
It is important for you to realise that in processing the candidate’s data you as the employer are acting as a data controller and need also to abide by the GDPR. Red / Redcurrant will therefore share candidates personal data with you on the basis that you agree to fully abide by the following rules:
You obtain your own GDPR compliant consent from the candidate in order that you may process their information 
You only ask a candidate for information that is necessary and relevant for the performance of the job role you are recruiting for
You do not share the candidate’s personal information with a third party without the candidate’s express consent
You only store the candidate’s details on your ATS (applicant tracking system) or talent database with their express consent
You have checked that any 3rd party ATS you use is fully compliant with GDPR
You only keep the candidate’s data for as long as is necessary
If you plan to gather more information about a candidate (i.e. screen their social media profile) as part of your screening process then you need to explain that explicitly and detail how and why
If you cannot abide by each of these requirements then please do not use our services.
