For certain positions, and to the extent permitted by applicable laws, it will be necessary for us to verify the details you have supplied (for example, in relation to your identity, employment history, academic qualification and professional credentials) and to conduct pre-employment background checks (for example, in relation to previous criminal convictions or financial standing).

If your application is successful, we will provide further information about the checks involved and will obtain any necessary consent prior to completing such checks.

    5. How we share your personal data

Personal data will primarily be processed by employees in our Human Resources, IT and finance, and facilities departments. This will include sharing your personal data with all Jabil entities globally (

Your personal data will be shared with companies providing services, such as technology services including hosting, maintenance, administration, and analysis, as well as other agencies, under contract to Jabil as part of the recruitment process. For general recruitment services, we use a third-party applicant tracking system. We also share your personal data with a third-party background checking provider where permissible by law.

Your personal data also will be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if mandated by law or if required for the protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws.

In the event that applicant data is otherwise transferred outside of the European Economic Area to an organization in a country which is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission or considered adequate as determined by applicable data protection laws, we will take steps to ensure your personal information is adequately protected (e.g. by way EU Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses, a vendor’s Processor Binding Corporate Rules or by relying on such other data transfer mechanisms as available under applicable data protection laws).

If you are a UK individual, whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK to a territory which is not subject to an adequacy decision by the UK Government, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by implementing appropriate safeguards in line with the requirements set out in the UK data protection legislation, such as by putting in place the UK International Data Transfer Agreement or the UK Addendum to the EU Standard Contractual Clauses with the data importer, among others. You may request further information on the measures used for the international transfers using the contact information provided below.

     6. Your choices and rights

You have the right to ask Jabil for a copy of your personal data; to obtain specific information about how Jabil processes your personal data, to correct, delete or restrict processing of your personal data; and to obtain the personal data you provide in a structured, machine readable format. In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement). Where we have asked for your consent, you may withdraw consent at any time. If you ask to withdraw your consent to Jabil processing your data, this will not affect any processing which has already taken place at that time.

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep. If you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to a data protection authority. If you are in the UK, please contact the Information Commissioner Office, at:

Where we collect personal data to administer our contract with you or to comply with our legal obligations, this is mandatory, and we will not be able to manage the employment relationship without this information. In all other cases, provision of the requested personal data is optional, but this may affect your ability to participate in certain programs or systems, where the information is needed for those purposes.

    7. How long we retain your personal data

If you are successful: we will retain your personal data only for as long as we need it for Jabil's legitimate interest in accordance with applicable law, for the purposes of the recruitment process and, once this process is finished, for an appropriate period so as to be able to deal with any legal claims linked to the application process. Recruitment records for successful applicants are generally kept for 6 years or in accordance with local laws. After this period, we will take steps to delete your personal data or hold it in a form that no longer identifies you. If you become a Jabil employee, relevant personal information you provide will become a part of your employee file and may be used later for the management of the employment relationship.

For additional information about the Company’s retention of your personal data, please consult the Company’s Retention Schedule which is available on the Jabil Web Corporate Policies page.

If you are not successful: For the applicants who have granted consent, Jabil will retain your personal data with your permission for 12 (twelve) months – or shorter when legally required based on local law – of inactivity in our recruitment system (i.e., after not having logged-in to your account/profile), for future recruitment processes. However, if consent is not granted to Jabil for future recruitment purposes, your personal data will be processed for 6 (six) months – or shorter when legally required based on local law –. After the retention period the applicant data will be completely deleted from Jabil’s system. An applicant is entitled to request deletion of his or her personal information at any time.
