How to apply?

 

What has changed in our application process due to the Corona pandemic?

  • We have changed all our interviews and selection processes to telephone, video and online formats. This means they can still take place in the current situation. 
  • We personally inform everyone who is invited to an interview or selection process about the format chosen and the technical requirements.
  • We will continue to advertise new positions and look forward to receiving your application.
  • You can still reach the contact persons listed on our careers website.

 

How can I apply?

Please apply via our application form, which you can access from any job advertisement by clicking on the "Apply now" button.

Have you already applied to 50Hertz since 01.07.2021? Then you already have a "profile" (account) with us and can sign in from the application form with your email address and password.

Our application form is short and simple, so you will need little time to send it and no special preparations. Finally, you can send your application by clicking the "Apply" button at the end of the form.

  • Please always send us a complete application this way, i.e. with cover letter, CV and, if possible, relevant (degree) certificates.
  • We recommend that you combine all application documents in one file and upload it in the "CV" field.
  • If you have a second file, you can upload an additional file in the field "Cover letter".
  • If you would like to upload additional files, you can still submit them later for this application from your profile (account) (which is automatically created when you apply for the first time). 
  • In your profile (account) you can track the status of all your applications.

 

What is the general application procedure?

  • Immediately after we got your application, you will receive a confirmation of receipt by e-mail. If, exceptionally, you do not receive one, this is an indication that your application did not arrive. In this case, please contact us by e-mail or telephone so that we can check this together.
  • We review the applications on an ongoing basis, so we appreciate it if you apply promptly. 
  • On the basis of the applications we received, we make a first selection among the candidates and then invite them to the selection process, usually a telephone interview at the beginning. 
  • As a rule, we then conduct a personal interview with the narrowest group of candidates (currently usually as a video interview) with a partially modified group of participants.
  • Depending on the job profile, case studies and/or assessment centres may be part of the application process.


How can I prepare for an interview at 50Hertz?

  • The aim of our interviews is to get to know each other well and to align mutual expectations.
  • We recommend that you go through the job advertisement again beforehand and keep in mind where you have done comparable work in the recent past. This is because we would like to conduct the interview based on concrete examples from your professional practice.
  • Don't forget to think about what you would like to learn from us. So you can afterwards make your personal decision on a good basis.
