How to transfer applicants over to the Personio Recruiting-API

This article describes where to find all relevant information for setting up the Personio Recruiting-API.

If you are using your own application form instead of the Personio Out-of-the-Box career page, it is still possible to set up a connection to Personio so that new applications are automatically created as applicant profiles in Personio. The prerequisite is the correct setup of the Personio Recruiting-API.

The transfer of applicants to the Personio Recruiting API should be established by an IT expert.

To transfer an application to Personio, a POST request must be sent to A detailed documentation of all parameters that must be included in the request as well as a list of possible API answers can be found in our Developer Hub.

The recruiting API access token as well as the company ID can be found in your Personio account under Settings > API > Credentials.

Please notice: If the transfer occurs directly via an HTML <form> element, the element must contain the attribute enctype="mulitpart/form-data".
