This notice (“Privacy Notice”) applies to personal information relating to your application for employment with HSBC Group companies in Japan (i.e., The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited, HSBC Securities (Japan) Limited, HSBC Global Asset Management K.K., and/or HSBC Services Japan Limited.).

It explains what information we collect about you, how we’ll use that information, who we’ll share it with, the circumstances when we’ll share it and what steps we’ll take to make sure it stays private and secure. This Privacy Notice covers all aspects of your interaction with HSBC in your capacity as an applicant, including recruitment and pre-employment screening and we may update this notice at any time.

Wherever we’ve said “you” or “your”, this means you or any authorised person who engages with us on your behalf (e.g. recruitment agencies you have authorised to liaise with us on your behalf).

When we say “we” or “HSBC”, we mean any or all of HSBC Group companies in Japan in respect of your personal information in your applicant capacity.

In order to be considered for employment you will be asked to provide us with personal information. Examples of the type of information we may collect include your name, address, contact details, resume, education background, employment and compensation history, passport information, referees and results of employment checks.

If you choose not to provide any of the information requested, we may be unable to send you information, fully process your application or properly consider you for employment.

When providing us with the information, you represent that such information is accurate, complete, up to date and true and is supplied for the sole purpose of seeking job or employment vacancies or positions. You may also be invited to supply some diversity information as part of your profile including, but not limited to, your age range, gender or physical needs, if you wish. This information, if you decide to provide it, will be used only for reporting on the diversity of our candidate base across the organisation, or to assist if you have any special requirements as part of the recruitment process or your ongoing employment.

2. PURPOSE OF USE

When we collect your personal information, we may use it:

  • to assess and administer your application for employment;
  • to communicate with you in relation to your application;
