Positions involving confidentiality

Positions involving confidentiality are positions in the private or public sectors whereby an abuse of office could endanger national security.

This may be, for example, because the duties involve working with confidential information, or because the employee requires access to the secure area of an airport. These positions are determined by the ministers in the relevant government departments. Persons employed in such a position have a special responsibility. The government and your employer therefore impose strict requirements on reliability, trustworthiness and integrity. The purpose of a  security screening is to ensure that there are sufficient guarantees that you satisfy these requirements.
