Personio Career Page: Adding Custom Candidate Attributes


This article explains how to set up custom candidate attributes and how to add them to the application form on your career page. The default application form contains the attributes Name, Email, Phone, and Documents. These are then transmitted to your Personio account. If you would like to collect additional information, such as your candidates' Expected salary or their Desired start date, you can configure these in the settings.


Setting Up Candidate Attributes

First, think about which candidate attributes you would like to request.

Go to Settings > Recruiting > Candidates > Add new attribute to create any number of custom candidate attributes. Choose whether the attribute will be created in the Candidate profile or HR information section, depending on whether the attribute contains sensitive data. Use the recruiting roles to control your employees' access to this information in the candidate profile.  



Adding Candidate Attributes to the Application Form

Now you can edit these attributes in the respective candidate profiles. Additionally, you can include them directly on your Personio career page. To do this, go to Settings > Recruiting > Career page settings and select the desired fields for the application form.


A possible application form might look like this:
