1. Assess your suitability
PostNL assesses your suitability for the position you are applying for. We look at the requirements that apply for the position and whether you meet them. At this time, we verify your identity based on your ID. In this phase of the process we do not keep any data regarding your proof of identity.
Sometimes an assessment and a (pre-employment) screening need to be carried out. If this applies to you, we let you know in advance. Every applicant is vetted against the “Negatieve Ontbinding (van werkrelatie) Registratie” (NOR – internal register of problematically dissolved employments) and the Waarschuwingsregister Logistieke Sector (WLS – national register of problematically dissolved employments within the logistics branch).
2. Offer and contract of employment
When the outcome of the application process is positive and PostNL offers you a job, your data are used to prepare an offer. When you accept the offer, we us the same data to also draw up the contract of employment. In the event you join PostNL as an independent contractor or through a recruitment agency, an agreement of assignment is drawn up.
PostNL has contact with you during the recruitment and application process, for example about interviews, assessments and other agreements we reach. We will also answer your questions.
4. Job Alert
You can set up a Job Alert feature. If you do so, we can inform you if there is a vacancy that matches your area of interest. By setting up Job Alert, you consent to our use of your email address and search criteria for this purpose. We will process you data for this purpose until you disable Job Alert.
5. Talent Pool
You can have your data included in our talent pool. You can share you data with us if you would like to join PostNL but there is no fitting vacancy at the time. We will then contact you if there is a relevant vacancy. By having you personal data included in the Talent Pool, you consent to our use of your personal data for this purpose. The retention period of data in Talent Pool is maximum of 12 months.
6. Improvement of recruitment process
We utilize analysis and reporting to ensure that our recruitment process is effective. If, for example, a large number of applicants for a certain vacancy is turned down due to mismatch in the level of education, we can adapt the vacancy description. It could be the case that our requirements were not stated clearly. Additionally, we can assess which demographic groups (male/female or age bracket) mainly apply for certain positions and subsequently adapt our recruitment campaigns. All the applicants are provided with a short questionnaire with which they can assess the recruitment process. With the information we obtain this way, we can improve the process.
These analyses and reports are based on personal data but contain no personal data.
