Data Processing for Job Applications

Purpose of Processing

Personal information about you which we obtain in the course of considering your suitability for employment will be stored and processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’).

Under GDPR, our lawful basis for processing your personal data is that it is necessary for considering entering into a contract of employment with you.

Use of your personal information

The data will be processed in relation to your application to work for First Response Finance or for the inclusion in your personal records if you become an First Response Finance employee.

The information collected will be retained for profile matching purposes and put forward where appropriate to selected members of First Response Finance HR and line managers when recruiting for future opportunities that match your profile.

The information collected will be retained for the purpose of screening you for employment with First Response Finance and you understand that if offered the position, employment will be subject to satisfactory employer references and satisfactory results from any other background checks that may be required.

If employed by First Response Finance, such checks may then be repeated periodically throughout your employment with the Company.

You have the right to access and update your data at any time by contacting us. Data will not be kept for longer than is necessary and will be removed from our database at your request. If you wish First Response Finance to delete your profile, please contact us.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the computer you are using for the processing of your data is adequately secured and protected against malicious software, such as Trojans, computer viruses and worm programs.

Verification of personal data

I authorise First Response Finance or any agent thereof to carry out all necessary enquiries to verify the information I have submitted on this form or any other information which may be relevant to my application.

I also authorise First Response Finance to verify my identity either by me providing appropriate documentation as requested or by First Response Finance undertaking a search to check the details supplied against my particulars on any databases to which they have access.

I authorise First Response Finance , or any agent thereof, to make enquiries of the school, college or university or other educational establishment where a qualification was gained.

I authorise enquiries to be made of my financial and credit history where applicable. These checks will only use data that is held within First Response Finance's systems, by credit reference agencies or other appropriate third parties.

I understand that I will be required to produce documentation that is required by law to establish my right to work in the UK or EEA.

I understand that First Response Finance may also require that a check is made on any criminal convictions I may have had in the past.

I understand that if any information gives cause for concern First Response Finance will discuss the information with me and the possible impact on my employment.

I authorise First Response Finance to retain this information and to provide this to any other future employer with my consent.

I understand that if I supply untrue information or willfully mislead in any answers given then this may subsequently lead to any offer of employment being withdrawn, or where employment has already commenced, the termination of such employment.


By applying for a job with First Response Finance , you are agreeing to our processing personal data about you where necessary for the above purposes, including the processing of any sensitive personal data about you.  Please refer to our Privacy Statement for your general rights under GDPR.
