The companies within the Total Group have their own legal existence and independent legal status. The Company publishing this website belongs to the Total Group. “Total” and “Total Group” are sometimes used in this website for convenience where references are generally made to TOTAL S.A. (the holding company) and its subsidiaries and affiliates. Likewise, the words “we”, “us” and “our” are used to refer to the Company or any company of the Total Group in general or to those who work for them. These expressions are also used where no useful purpose is served by identifying the particular company or companies. It cannot be inferred from these expressions that TOTAL S.A. or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates are involved in the business and management of any other company of Total Group.

2. Information about activities

This website enables you to consult the job vacancies for the TOTAL Group, to apply for one of these vacancies or to make a spontaneous application. If required, this website can alert them to job offers or any that could interest them according to specific criteria they predetermined. In some cases, it can also present some of the activities of the group.   

An acknowledgement of receipt of the application and a description of the application process are sent within 48 hours to the candidate’s email address. When a candidate applied to an offer from the Total Group, if his/her candidacy has been preselected, the candidate will be contacted by internal or external recruiters. Otherwise, the candidate will receive a negative answer by e-mail at the latest 90 days after the application. 

The personal data collected during a spontaneous application is recorded in a database shared by all internal and external recruiters of the Total Group. In this case, Total could contact you later on regarding a job vacancy available within the group in accordance with the duration of data storing defined in the personal data protection policy and provided that the user has not asked Total to delete all his/her data.  

During the recruitment process, the candidate could be asked to take on-demand video interviews. These on-demand video interviews are realized in principle through the platform of one of the Total Group suppliers. If you agree to take this interview, it meansyou agree with the supplier terms and conditions.
