The more structured and complete your CV is, the easier it is for us to understand your professional experience and knowledge. The personal details should be followed by blocks on professional experience, training/studies, language and IT skills.

HHLA uses a structured selection process (SSP) to fill vacant positions. This can take place individually or in a group and usually includes a case study, a simulated discussion and an interview (individual SSP) or a personal presentation and group discussion (group SSP). This allows us to compare your professional knowledge and experience with the requirements of the position. In addition to professional skills, we will also evaluate whether team members fit together.

Take the time to find out about HHLA, its business areas and values. Think about what interests you about the specific position and what you can contribute. And last but not least, think about what you would like to know from us.

We want to get to know you personally and find out about your professional qualifications. Be authentic and let us see the real you.
