    2. For what purposes and on what grounds do we process your personal data?
      The purpose of the processing of personal data of applicants is to recruit personnel for Scania:
      • Receiving, processing and storage of the job application
      • Concluding an employment contract between the applicant and Scania
      • Storage of the job application for possible future recruitment.
      In addition, the data are used for statistics and reports, to develop recruitment in particular. The processing of your data as an applicant is based on Scania's legitimate interest, such as the job application you have submitted and the recruitment process, as well as the personal and aptitude tests you have consented to, or data collected from references you have provided. In addition, personal data are processed for the purpose of carrying out pre-contractual measures between the selected applicant and Scania.

      The technical platform of the data file is the LAURA™ service, whose provider LAURA Recruitment Ltd is responsible for the technical implementation of the data file and thus acts as the processor of personal data.

      LAURA Recruitment Ltd is a Finnish service located in Finland.
