Privacy notice - Job Pod


This privacy notice covers the capture of personally identifiable information to support delivery of the Library and Information Service Job Pod project.

Since COVID-19, there has been a marked shift towards employers offering job seekers online interviews on platforms such as MS Teams and Skype. While this approach offers public health benefits by reducing social contacts, there is a risk that digitally excluded job seekers, with no access to a device with Internet connection, will be disadvantaged.

Job Pod will provide a Covid-safe private space at Eastbourne and Hastings Libraries with the necessary IT equipment and a member of staff available to provide technical support. Job seekers will be able to book the room and ‘attend’ an online interview. But to ensure that we can deliver a robust and effective service, we will need to capture some information from the participants.

East Sussex County Council takes data protection seriously. Please be assured that your information will be used appropriately in line with data protection legislation, will be stored securely and will not be processed unless the requirements for fair and lawful processing can be met.
