To make it easier for us to get in touch with you, you may also enter additional voluntary contact information, e.g. your address or your landline and cell phone numbers. To enable us to better address your application preferences you also have the possibility to transfer further data and files on a voluntary basis (the upload of the CV is mandatory), e.g. information on your professional qualifications and experience and files including your application documents such as motivational letter, application photo, reports and certificates etc. Please note that in particular the CVs, reports and certificates or other information transmitted by you for application purposes may contain sensitive data such as information on race or ethnic origin, political opinion, membership in a trade union or political party, information on physical or mental fitness or sexual life.
