Please take a look below at the most frequently asked questions.
I would like to apply for more than one vacancy / location:
What is the best way to do this?
You can apply directly via the job listings for one or more positions.
Is it worth sending an unsolicited application or should I only send an application for a vacancy?
We are always on the lookout for talent to support us in our work. So please don’t hesitate to take the initiative by sending us an unsolicited application. For more information take a look at the link “Unsolicited Applications”.
How long does the recruitment process take?
The recruitment process – from the first contact to offer – takes 4 to 6 weeks.
How long before the actual start date should I apply?
You should always apply as early as possible because the review and recruitment process can take a while. Some departments also have set start dates.
Who should I send my application to?
Contact details are provided in the job listing and all applications should be submitted to the contact given. In case no details are provided in the listing please submit your application to the relevant HR department. If in doubt, a brief phone call to us will help you find the information you need.
What type of application do you prefer?
We are happy to receive your classic application folder by post. However, email applications are easier, quicker and more convenient, which is why we prefer online or email applications.
What should a good application look like?
A good application should include cover letter, CV and relevant certificates and references. Most importantly, it should portray your professional skills and your personality. For more information take a look at the link “Tips for your application”.
