Recruitment candidates

According to our standards we only collect personal data necessary for our specified purposes, and we encourage recruitment candidates to only share personal data where it is strictly required for us to evaluate your candidacy for our job positions.

If a candidate applies to PwC via our Workday application, we encourage candidates to also read the privacy statement published on Workday. If a candidate applies for a job with PwC through other communication channels, we invite you to familiarize yourself with this section of the privacy statement.

In certain cases we may contact candidates ourselves using publicly available communication channels (for example, using the contact information provided on a person's Linkedin profile or other social networks).

PwC may search for additional information about you in publicly available sources and/or verify information about you by contacting the contact persons you have indicated in your application to receive feedback about you.

For details on our recruitment process, please see our careers page.

  • name and surname;

  • contact information (e.g. phone number, email, residential address);

  • gender (only in aggregated form for statistical purposes);

  • academic and professional qualifications and experience;

  • language skills;

  • information about a valid Covid-19 certificate, if required for the specific position;

  • any other information that the candidate has chosen to provide about himself/herself or to import from other data sources (e.g photo, other biographical information, family status, skills, contact for feedback, etc.).

In your application for a specific PwC vacancy, you may also provide us with sensitive personal information about yourself, also known as special category data (for example, information about yourself provided during interviews or information you have provided in your application or CV), such as information about:

  • your political views or religious beliefs;

  • your union membership;

  • your criminal record;

  • your physical or mental health, etc.

PwC does not ask you to provide this personal information, except where such information is required by applicable laws (for example, for trade union membership).
