Our application process

You have found your dream job with us and are wondering what to expect in our application process?

Here we would like to give you an overview.

Your application
Are you excited about our corporate philosophy and have found a suitable position in our job portal? Send us your documents directly – but only via our job portal please!

After successfully uploading your application, you will receive an automatic confirmation by e-mail from us. So you can be sure, that your documents have reached us and will be processed timely and in accordance with data protection regulations.

The best thing to do is to create a profile in our job portal. This way, you can always check the current status of your application, easily submit additional documents, and ask your contact person if you have any questions. You will find the access data in the e-mail.

Our first meeting
If we are convinced by your application documents, we will arrange a telephone call with you lasting about 15 to 20 minutes or directly a personal interview lasting about one hour.

During these interviews, we want to get to know you better, learn more about you, your motivation and your previous professional career. At the same time, you have the opportunity to receive initial information about the position that goes beyond the job advertisement. Also we talk about our corporate values and, of course, about the topic of sustainability.

Our second meeting
You can still identify with our company and the advertised position? And we can also imagine that you would be a good fit for us? Then your personality will be the focus of a final interview. Now we would like to know what is important to you and what motivates you. A few questions that you can answer in advance will help us to understand you.

Our offer of contract
After our meeting, we will contact you as soon as possible. If we think that we are a good fit for each other, there is nothing standing in the way of a cooperation.

Do you have any questions?

Here you will find the answers to the most frequently asked questions. And if a question remains unanswered, you are very welcome to contact us personally.

Yes! All jobs that we advertise on our website are not yet taken.

Yes, simply subscribe to our Job Subscription! Then you will be notified automatically as soon as we have posted a position that could be interesting
for you.

You really want to work for us, but haven’t found a suitable position? In our job portal [Link] you can find out for which Werner & Mertz locations a speculative application is possible. If this option does not exist, you are welcome to use our Job subscription to be informed automatically as soon as a position that could be interesting is advertised.

  1. We would already like to know something about your personality in your application. Do you think you would be a good fit for us? Then tell us why! Explain to us what drives you and what goals you are pursuing. We like a letter of motivation better than a simple cover letter.
  2. Of course, we are particularly excited what do you think about the topic of sustainability. Do you deal with sustainable living in your private life? Or have you already been involved with it professionally? Then write to us about it!
  3. Stay relaxed in the interviews and show yourself as the person you are. We are looking for authentic people, not superheroes. Our new team members convince us with their qualifications, but also with their personal values and attitudes. The Werner & Mertz Group is a team with great cohesion and a common view – therefor common values are simply important.

Please include your resume and all references that are relevant to the position with your application. If you want things to go quickly, then use the formal cover letter and the input mask in the job portal to tell us about your motivation.

Please always upload your documents in PDF format.

After your first application, create your personal profile in our job portal – you will receive the access data by e-mail. Then you can apply easily and without much effort for different positions and for several locations.

If you have created a personal profile in our job portal, you can easily add to or update your documents at any time. We always recommend creating a profile before uploading your documents. This makes subsequent communication easier and also allows you to check the current status of your application.

Click on the “Forgotten password” button in the input mask of our job portal. Then you will receive an individually generated link with which you can reset your password and choose a new one.

If you have decided to apply for another position in the meantime, you can easily withdraw your application via our job portal. Therefor use the confirmation email we sent you after receiving your application. Then you will be guided through the process.

With our onboarding plan, you will quickly get to know your new working environment. During this time, we will introduce you to our processes, our corporate culture and the interfaces in our company. Your ‘buddy’ – your personal contact person – will answer many organizational questions, especially during the first weeks. In addition, your buddy will also help you to feel comfortable with us on a personal level.

Halfway through your probationary period, you will meet with your manager for an orientation meeting. Here you talk about your first impressions and the areas in which we can provide even better support for your induction. Shortly before the end of your probationary period, we will talk to you about your experiences during the entire induction phase, but especially about your wishes and the options regarding your professional and personal development. Whether it’s a specialist, management, project management or process career: If you want, you can go far with us. We offer you real perspectives – right from the start!
