We receive applications from job candidates, and for this purpose personal data of job candidates voluntarily provided by the candidate in the application and CV (name, surname, date of birth, contact information, past work experience, professional qualifications, education, photo) are processed.

If an individual candidate has given the consent for the data to be retained even after the competition is over, the data is stored for a maximum of 24 months. One of the primary reasons for retaining candidate data for a maximum of 24 months is to simplify future recruitment processes due to planned expansion and recruitment based on potential new projects, thereby reducing the time required for recruitment and ensuring a more efficient recruitment process. In this way, it is possible to maintain contact with candidates who may not have been selected for a specific role, but possess valuable skills and experience, and it is possible to proactively reach out to candidates for newly opened positions. In addition, candidates can gain additional skills and experience in their field within a period of 24 months.


Candidates who have voluntarily provided their information for future postings can withdraw their consent at any time without negative consequences. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of the processing until the moment of withdrawal.
