As long as a job is still advertised online, this means that the application process has not yet been concluded, so you are still welcome to apply.
Here’s what we would like you to do:
Please avoid printed and e-mail applications – just apply directly online. An online application will register all the information relevant to the job in question on our applicant management system. In this way your application can be directly viewed by us as soon as you have submitted your details. This speeds things up, and makes it much easier for us to deal with your application.
Please be aware that any files uploaded have a maximum limit of 50 MB, and they will not be write-protected.
Yes, you are very welcome to do so! But please be aware that, if you submit an unsolicited application, we will not always be able to give you a specific response about your chance of success immediately. We like to take a bit of time to look into the detailed possibilities of your finding a situation with us.
For a complete application, we need the following documents: cover letter, CV and all educational certificates and work references (if applicable).
Above all new career entrants and students must accompany their application with a copy of their Abitur [school leaving examination] certificate and an overview of their current marks.
The amount of the remuneration will be based on the requirements of the job, and on the qualifications and experience of the applicant. In the application interview you can expect to be given more concrete information.
When we receive your application, we will consider whether your profile is ideally suited to the requirements of the job. If there is a fundamental match, we will decide whether to invite you to an initial interview, where you will make the acquaintance of your future manager. If in the course of this you make a positive impression, you will generally be offered a second interview, at which the details of your contract of employment will be discussed. Joint signature of the contract of employment completes the application process.
Please note that we will reimburse second class rail travel, Economy class flights and a mileage allowance of EUR 0.30 per kilometre if you are coming by private car. We will send you our travel expenses form along with the invitation to an interview.
