Data processing of applicants’ personal data applying for job openings at Egis:

Data processing of applicant’s personal data with the purpose of filling the posted job opening (recruitment) – applicant’s name and contacts (address, phone number, e-mail address, LinkedIn profile, if applicable, personal professional webpage address); contents of the résumé and cover letter, photo attached to the résumé; language skills; data on experiences, previous job(s), qualifications, skills and education; preferred field of expertise; references; expected monthly salary, if stated. Résumés and applications may contain the personal data voluntarily disclosed by applicants, such as: place and date of birth; mother’s maiden name; nationality; Facebook profile; Skype ID; mother tongue; and any other documents other than the résumé and the cover letter.

Assessment of applicant’s professional competence for the job that the applicant applied for, after all applications have been reviewed based on the characteristics of the job opening – questions and queries stated either online, or in tests or during personal observation (job interview during assessment centre) are exclusively targeted at assessing the competencies that are essential for the posted job. The assessment is either performed by an external professional commissioned by Egis (psychologist, HR professional) or by a professional employed by Egis by reviewing the answers submitted by the applicant either in tests or online or during the personal observation. The following partners may participate in the assessment: Profiles International Hungary Kft., Performan Group Kft., HaRp &Partners Kft.

Storage of applicant’s résumé, other application material, including the material connected with the assessment of competencies, with the purpose of Egis potentially contacting applicant directly in the future with any specific job offers (e.g. new job openings, vacancies) – the range of data originally recorded about the applicant.

Personal data are stored for 2 years for successful applications, starting from the first day of employment; personal data are stored for 2 years for unsuccessful applications, after the selection procedure has ended; if the applicant has not withdrawn one’s consent or objected to personal data being stored.

The full version of the Data Processing Policy details all data processing conducted by Egis, including the precise storage period for each data category. During the data processing period, within the Egis organisation, the person in charge of the functional area that the job application belongs to, and authorised employees of Egis’ HR Directorate have access to the applicant’s job application and the personal data included in it. The career website is operated by Nexum Magyarország Kft.

In case of a successful application (selection), Egis may transfer the data submitted by the applicant to the employer connected with the given activity of Egis, i.e. the labour leasing company or the school cooperative.

In certain cases, the selection process conducted by Egis is supported by recruitment process outsourcing (RPO); in such cases the contractual partner of Egis, (e.g. Randstad Hungary Kft. 1024 Budapest, Lövőház utca 39. Millenáris Irodaház 2. emelet) participates in the entire recruitment and selection process (excluding the definition of the open position posted by Egis and excluding the selection of the successful candidate), during which process the contractual partner of Egis acts as data processor. In cases of employment by school cooperatives, the selection process is conducted by employees of Egis or employees of the school cooperative, the contractual partner of Egis does not participate in the process.
