What is the best way to apply?

Please apply via our online application system.
Our standardized online application process not only allows us to compare profiles precisely with the respective requirements of the departments, but also to provide feedback much more quickly and also ensure that all applicable data protection requirements are met when processing your personal data.

You will find the link to our application system in each job posting.  

Subject to your consent in your applicant profile, we can also assign your profile to other job applications with just a few clicks, for which we would also like to consider you based on your qualifications.

What documents should I upload?

In order to be able to review your application efficiently and promptly, we need your complete resume as well as your diplomas and job references. You are welcome to tell us more about yourself and the motivation behind your application in a cover letter. Please upload the files as PDF documents in our system.

In your applicant profile, you have the opportunity to provide information about yourself as well as your desired conditions for employment.

It is also important that you enter your telephone number and email address correctly so that we can contact you.

Can I apply for more than one job at the same time?

Yes, multiple applications are absolutely fine. If you apply for several positions, there may be several interviews in different departments, depending on your suitability. By the way, you only have to create your candidate profile once.

How does the application process work?

After you have successfully uploaded your application in our application system, you will receive a confirmation of receipt by email. Please give us some time to check your documents by the personnel department and the responsible department. As soon as this has been done, you will receive individual information from us on the status of your application. If your skills match the profile we are looking for, we look forward to a telephone call or a personal meeting. Among other things, we will discuss the next steps in the process.
