Application advice

Let us know who you are

To make it as simple as possible, you can apply for a job by only creating an account and attach your resume. However, please be aware that a comprehensive application will help us to get to know you better. The more information you provide on your talents, abilities and knowledge the better we can determine whether we'll be a good fit for you. Please apply only through our system. Below you can find some useful tips for your application.

Depending on the position, we work with an individual set of criteria in the pre-selection and final selection. In the end, it’s the candidate's overall impression that counts – this depends on how well the knowledge, characteristics and abilities of the candidate fit our defined requirements. Age, gender or cultural background have absolutely no influence on our selection decision. All applicants are welcome - Together we do great things.

Make sure that the resume does not have any gaps and the dates match your certificates and references

Include other skills that you think might be relevant for the job you apply for (e.g. language skills, IT skills, driver's licence)

You should write the application with the reader in mind - ask yourself 'what do they need to know about me?'

In the recruiting software, we distinguish between your personal candidate profile and a job application. Your profile contains your personal information that you need in case you apply for a job vacancy later. You can continuously update this. When you apply for an advertised job, use the profile, a job-specific cover letter, your resume, and education and training certificates. If you have actively applied for a job, you can no longer change the profile you submitted with the application or the documents you uploaded. If you wish to make changes, get in touch with the contact person for the advertised job.

Your profile is active as long as you have an open application. After all applications have been closed, your profile will be kept for another nine months, after which it is deleted. You will receive a reminder prior to deletion. To keep your profile from being deleted, simply log in again. If you do so, your profile will be kept for another period of six months.
