Data Protection Policy


OECD’s recruitment system is a job finding tool for the OECD’s staff members as well as for persons seeking employment with the Organisation.

Privacy protection in the context of OECD‘s recruitment system

Your privacy is of utmost importance to us. This policy establishes how we handle your personal data in the context of the OECD‘s recruitment system.

A general Privacy Policy is applicable to the OECD website. Nevertheless, in the framework of OECD‘s recruitment system, special provisions apply and prevail, wherever relevant, to the general privacy policy.
In particular, the Decision of the Secretary-General on the Protection of Individuals with Regard to the Processing of their Personal Data is applicable to any person who has signed on to the OECD ‘s recruitment system.

Data collection

Registration is a prerequisite to use the services of OECD‘s recruitment system.

In connection with your use of the OECD‘s recruitment system, we ask for and collect information from and about you such as your name, email and postal addresses, date and place of birth, education and work history, etc.

We will not ask you information regarding your racial or ethnic origin, your sexual orientation, your political, philosophical, trade unions or religious opinions and activities.

All our staff members who have access to, and are associated with the processing of these data, are bound to respect its confidentiality.

This personal information will not be shared with any outside organisation or entity unless you give us your express permission to do so.

Individual access and right to modification

You can access your online personal information by logging into your account in OECD ‘s recruitment system. Once there, you can update, or modify your personal information. Please note, however, that for practical reasons, there is no possibility to update and correct the data submitted in the context of a specific job-opening, after its deadline.

Nonetheless, you can update or modify your data for any other job-opening.

Data provided by the candidates are stored during a maximum of 5 years in order to allow them to update their information instead of entering everything for each new job vacancy to which they want to apply.
Beyond this duration, data is destroyed.


Your account containing your personal information is password-protected. After you have finished using your account on the OECD‘s recruitment system, you should logout and exit your browser so that no unauthorized persons can access your personal information.
