Data privacy

Your Data

METRO GROUP attaches special importance to the protection of personally related data. Technical and organisational measures enable us to ensure that your data are protected against accidental or intentional manipulation and unauthorised access. Your online application is therefore transmitted in code according to present state-of-the-art.

Online application

We would like to encourage you to submit your application online. In this way, you will simplify and expedite the processing of your application considerably.

If your application refers to a specific vacancy, we will only save your data and documents up until this position is filled.

If, based on your profile, we gain the impression that your application could also be interesting for other areas or companies, we will save your data in our applicant management system for a period of six months to enable us to contact you again at a later point in time. After that, you will have the option to leave your documents in our applicants’ pool for a further six months.

Application in writing

With your approval, the data from your application in writing will be entered into our applicant management system. Your documents will be scanned into the system, and your original documents will subsequently be returned to you.

Your data will be saved in our applicant management system in the same way as detailed for online applications.

Use of your data

Your data are used only for internal reconciliation and anonymous statistics. If we are unable to offer you a vacancy at present and if, based on your profile, we gain the impression that your application could also be interesting for other areas or companies, your data will be saved in our applicants' pool for a period of six months. This pool can be accessed by both METRO AG and the other METRO GROUP companies. An updated list of these companies can be found here. Over and above this, we will never forward your data to third parties.

For you, this means that you have considerably greater chances to be offered a suitable position in METRO GROUP.

Please also note our general data privacy guidelines.
