Selection process

What is the best way to apply and what are the next steps in the application process once we’ve received your application?

You’d like to apply for a specific position advertised on our homepage? Then please outline the requirements, the profile of the vacancy and your personal suitability for the position in your cover letter. This helps us get an initial impression of you and your motivation in applying for the position.

Please gather the following application documents in one PDF file and send it in an email:

  • A covering letter addressing the job requirements
  • A well-structured CV
  • Your work references and certificates (permanent positions and internships)
  • Your qualifications (highest school exam certificates, Bachelors degree, Masters degree)

Once we have received your application you will receive a confirmation email in return. The HR employees responsible for the position will then review all applications received based on the criteria listed in the job advertisement. The applications are then passed on to the department in question and in many cases also to the works council. This selection process can take several weeks, so please be patient.

If you seem like a good fit, you’ll be invited to meet us and we’ll inform you about the next steps in the selection process. The next steps will vary company to company and position to position. Some will require a test or an interview, an internship or an assessment centre taking you through the steps of the structured selection process.

All applicants are informed quickly of the results of the selection process once it has been completed. If you have been successful, you will receive further information regarding what happens next. Depending on the company, we will send a proposal to the works council. If the works council agrees to the proposal, we will draft a contract and you will receive an invitation to attend an in-depth contract meeting.

You can contact the HR person listed in the job advertisement at any time with any further questions you may have.
