Home > About JDRF & our impact > Careers at JDRF > How we process your job application
When you apply for a role with JDRF your CV and covering letter will be used during the recruitment process to shortlist suitable candidates who will then be invited to proceed to the interview stage, and to select the final candidate that the role will be offered to.
We sometimes use third-party job application platforms to publish and receive applications for roles at JDRF. When you apply through these portals the organisation’s privacy information will be available to you. We only work alongside other organisations in this way if we are satisfied that they will keep your information safely and use it only in the same legal ways that we would.
During the recruitment process, we will perform some checks on your identity, your right to work in the UK, your past employment references and for some specified roles your eligibility to work with vulnerable people.
If your application is successful, this information will then form part of your personnel file.
We delete the personal information of unsuccessful applications six months after the application process ends in case there are follow-up queries about the process. There may be some occasions where we ask to keep your details longer in case we want to talk about future roles. Statistical information like ethnicity, sexuality and disability is kept to ensure that our recruitment processes are inclusive and not discriminatory, but this is completely anonymised.
If we are required by law to share your information, (for example; in response to a warrant or court order), we will do so.
One day, we will create a world without type 1 diabetes. Until that day, your support is vital for our international research to find better treatments until we find a cure.
With our incredible supporters, we’ve been able to advance major breakthroughs in research, transformed access to life-changing technology and expanded our reach to support more people.
We are a national team, with many of us having lived experience of type 1 diabetes. We are based in various locations across the UK and share a dedication to finding better treatments and an eventual cure for type 1.
