We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
You have been directed to this web page as you have received a communication from the Joint Research Centre (JRC) relating to a selection and/or recruitment process. Please read carefully below how we use the personal data that you supply to us.
The JRC collects and processes your personal data according to Regulation 45/2001. The selection and/or recruitment process necessarily involves the collection and use of your personal data.
How we manage your personal data is described in a privacy statement (specific to each category of staff/visitor). The privacy statement covers:
|Privacy statements (by category)||Last update|
|TEMPORARY AGENTS||November 2013|
|CONTRACT STAFF MEMBERS||October 2013|
|SECONDED NATIONAL EXPERTS||November 2013|
|INVITED PERSONS / UNPAID VISITING SCIENTISTS||July 2013|
During our recruitment/hosting procedures, we will ask you to provide us with a valid and original criminal record extract* from the national database of your latest country of residence. Should you be resident in that country for less than 6 months, a valid and original criminal record extract emanating from your previous country of residence where you have been living for at least 6 months is required.
The request for a criminal record extract is linked to an obligation under the Staff Regulations (Article 28). A list of European equivalent criminal record extracts can be found here. If you so wish, you are entitled to request that your criminal record extract be returned to you after processing by our service. If this is the case, please contact us at: email@example.com
In case of doubt only, salary slips (from a chosen candidate's previous jobs) as part of the recruitment file are requested from a candidate in order to establish his/her grading. Such information is retained for a maximum retention period of 2 years and then physically destroyed.
If you have a physical disability and you have informed us of this fact at the application phase, this information will only be used to ensure that special arrangements (as requested by you) are put in place for you at the interview phase. If you still require assistance, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are recruited, the data relating to your disability (in case special arrangements are required) will be inserted in your personal file for the whole period of your employment/your stay at the JRC.
Before being offered a contract by the Commission, the personal data of third country nationals will be subjected to a security screening, which is tied to obligations arising from Commission Decisions 2001/844/EC of 29 November 2001 and C (94) 2129 of 8 September 1994.
