Online Job Applications
When you apply online for a job through the Mayden website your application is automatically sent as an email to our HR Department. All of the information you provide during the process will only be used for the purpose of progressing your application, or to fulfil legal or regulatory requirements if necessary.
We will not share any of the information you provide during the recruitment process with any third parties for marketing purposes. The information you provide will be held securely by Us whether the information is in electronic or physical format.
We will use the contact details you provide to Us to contact you to progress your application. We will use the other information you provide to Us to assess your suitability for the role you have applied for. By submitting your information, you give Us permission to share it with any Mayden employee who is involved with shortlisting and at any stage of the recruitment process, for any role We feel you may be suitable for, without the need for any prior additional explicit consent. If you would like to restrict your information to only the role you are applying for, please let Us know when you submit your application details.
What information do we ask for, and why?
We do not collect more information than we need to fulfil our stated purposes and will not retain it for longer than is necessary. The information We ask for is used to assess your suitability for employment. You don’t have to provide what We ask for but it might affect your application if you don’t.
The online form will ask you to provide your contact details which will include name, phone number, email address, if you have the right to work in the UK and if you have any unspent criminal convictions. You will also be asked to submit your CV to cover skills, qualifications and experience. This file is then emailed directly to our HR department who will have access to all this information. All files are then deleted from the server, so no personal data is ever stored on the server.
Your information will be shared with the recruiting team who will review and shortlist applications for interview. If you are invited to attend an interview, depending on the role that you have applied for, you may be asked to participate in assessments, complete tests or occupational personality profile questionnaires, or a combination of these. Information will be generated by you and Us. For example, you might complete a written test or We might take interview notes.
Offer of employment
If We make you an offer of employment We are required to confirm the identity of our staff, their right to work in the United Kingdom and seek assurances as to their trustworthiness, integrity and reliability.
You will therefore be required to provide:
- Proof of your identity – you will be asked to attend our offices with original documents, We will take copies.
- Proof of your qualifications – you will be asked to attend our offices with original documents, We will take copies.
- We will contact your referees, using the details you provide in your application, directly to obtain references.
- Bank details – to process salary payments
- Emergency contact details – so We know who to contact in case you have an emergency at work
How long is the information retained for?
If you are successful, the information you provide during the application process will be retained by Us as part of your employee file for the duration of your employment, and up to 6 years following the end of your employment. This includes your criminal records declaration and records of any security checks and references.
If you are unsuccessful at any stage of the process, the information that you have provided until that point will be retained for 12 months from the closure of the recruitment campaign.
Information generated throughout the assessment process, for example interview notes, is retained by Us for 12 months following the closure of the campaign.

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. We have a number of security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of any personal information We receive from you via this website.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this policy. For example, our website uses an encrypted connection to make it difficult for unauthorised people to view information travelling between our server and your device.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Once We receive information, We make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Once We have received your information, We will use strict internal procedures and security measures to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We have ISO27001:2013 and our Information security policies and procedures are subject to regular external assessments by a UKAS accredited certification company.
