What does a complete application need to include?
Your application should include a curriculum vitae, all references that are relevant for the position as well as a cover letter. Have a look at our tips for applicants!
How does the selection process work?
Application process for a specific job:
Once we've received your application online, by post or e-mail, we send you confirmation of receipt. The specialist and personnel departments use a range of selection tools to select a list of suitable applicants who are then invited to interview.
Speculative application process:
Once you've entered your data in our application system, your profile is published in the Group-wide applicant pool. Our personnel departments view this pool regularly. If we find a vacancy that matches your profile, we'll get in touch with you straight away. The specialist and personnel departments use a range of selection tools to select a list of suitable applicants who are then invited to interview.
Please note that you will only receive feedback from us when your profile has been successfully allocated by a recruiter to a suitable opening.
We therefore recommend that you always submit your application for a specific job opening.
Why do we prefer online applications?
Transparency is one of the most important elements to successfully manage applications - you as the applicant get an up-to-date overview of all the vacancies available and can view your status whenever you want online. At the same time our decentralized personnel and specialist departments can access your profile independently of one another in terms of both time and space. What's more, we can process an online application far quicker and let you know whether your application has been successful or not promptly.
How do I know whether my application has been received?
As soon as we receive your application, you receive confirmation of receipt by email.
Can I still apply in writing?
We prefer online applications, but you also have the opportunity to apply in writing when an application address is published in the job ad.
Please note that speculative applications can only be made online.
What happens if I change my candidate profile when an application is already underway?
These changes are stored in our system and applied to pending applications. It is thus ensured that we can access your current documents at any time and consider these in the application process.
Can I apply for positions outside Germany?
Yes, you can apply for positions abroad if these are advertised in our job market.
Can I block my profile once it’s released?
Yes, you can block your profile at any time and release it again later. Of course it is also possible to delete your registration and with it your profile completely.
Will my profile be approved automatically for the applicant pool?
If you only register on the system, your data is not yet visible for us. If you applied for a specific job, your data will be visible only for the company which advertises the job opening and not in the applicant pool.
In the case of a speculative application, your profile will be released for the Group-wide applicant pool. In both cases, you will receive a confirmation when you submit your application.
