What we can offer you
We offer you two routes to a career at ElringKlinger. You can join us as a direct entrant, which will include a targeted induction program for a specific role and a personalized schedule so that you can "find your feet" as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can join us as a trainee once you have completed your degree studies. In this case, you will be introduced to various departments and will also be given international assignments.
Staff satisfaction is particularly important to us, as our employees are instrumental in securing our position as a market leader. We believe strongly that people can only deliver a best-in-class performance if they are truly content. Therefore, it is important to create a favorable work-life balance.
We can think of many reasons why ElringKlinger is the perfect company to meet your career ambitions. Some of them are listed under the section "Your Employer". One thing is certain: you will benefit from a culture that embraces innovative thinking and entrepreneurial spirit.
You would like to know what happens to your application once you have sent it to us via our online tool. We appreciate that. After all, this is an exciting moment in your future career.
You will be notified by e-mail as soon as we have received your application through the online careers portal. Your documents will then be forwarded to the HR Advisor responsible for such applications. Having preselected suitable applicants, he will then pass on the details of potential candidates to the relevant department.
Those candidates considered to be suitable will be invited to a personal interview. You will be introduced to a representative of our HR department as well as a staff member of the department or unit to which you would later be assigned. If this first meeting and a second interview prove successful, we would be delighted to welcome you to our team – but only, of course, if you feel that we are the right employer for you.
