Privacy Management & System Security
Privacy Management 
As part of the recruitment process Woolworths is required to request certain private information from the candidate in order to comply with our legal obligations in regards to sourcing and employing new employees to our business.
 
One of these requirements is to ensure that everyone we employ has a legal right to work in Australia. In order to do this we are required to obtain evidence of a person’s identity to enable us to undertake work entitlement checks through the Department of Immigration and Citizenship to ensure suitability.
If the application is successful, this information will be transferred across to the HR information system and we may contact the candidate using the contact information that they have provided.
 
The information we collect from the candidate will be handled sensitively and securely with proper regards to privacy.
 
System Security 
The system we use is on a secure website and you can see the web address starts with https: which identifies it as being managed with a level of encryption to enable security. The data centre that supports this system is in Australia and it is in a secure data centre.
 
The Company will take all reasonable measures to ensure that the candidate’s personal information is protected from misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
 
If the candidate does not provide some of the personal information we request when they apply for a position with Woolworths Ltd, we will not be able to process the candidate’s application.
 
If the application is unsuccessful we will retain the candidate’s information on file for 12 months in the event that a suitable position may become available, after which it will be securely deleted.
