Future in Your Hands
Join us at TÜV SÜD Sales, Customer Services and Training to work in positions with a high degree of responsibility. People in this division oversee the maintenance of customer networks and the further development of our sales strategy and its implementation. They analyse training needs, develop courses and set up certification programmes. Further tasks might include reviewing contracts and related risks, developing new services for customers and much more.
As with any company, we need sales professionals who will publicise and market our products and services, look for opportunities to scale up our business, and think outside the box to create real value for our customers. Our business, in essence, is our clients, so our direct contact with them must always be exemplary.
Our colleagues in our variety of customer service departments are the backbone of our organisation. They ensure the smooth running and organisational handling of our services in the local markets.
Possible backgrounds are a degree in business studies, law, psychology, marketing or a similar field of study with relevant business experience. If this sounds like you, get in touch!
After many years of dutiful service, our TÜV SÜD Academy online shop eventually no longer met the technical standards needed to fulfil modern customer requirements. In order to remain competitive and continue to drive forward digital change within TÜV SÜD, the next step was clear: we needed to relaunch.
Our relaunch project included creating a new e-commerce concept, taking into account all TÜV SÜD Academy’s specific requirements and needs. We had to keep in mind the possibilities of standardisation and reusability for future TÜV SÜD online shops.
We developed a new concept and design based on the latest user experience trends and customer needs. We also created a new information architecture that allows the customer to find products and information quickly and intuitively. In order to remain competitive in the search engines, we focused on the aspect of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and aligned the implementation with the Mobile First approach.
We implemented this concept on the well-known e-commerce platform of Intershop and it has been available at www.tuvsud.com/akademie since 30th July 2020.
At the end of 2013, we introduced a specialist information service to supplement our data protection seminars. We released four print issues of it per year – which could also be accessed online – with information about work as a data protection officer.
In July 2017, we began fundamentally revising the specialist information service with the project Relaunch of the Data Protection Portal. In cooperation with all departments involved, we created an online portal where all information regarding data protection is made available on a daily basis. The portal provides data protection specialists with extensive specialist knowledge, working aids for downloading, current cases, judgements, and training for employees. In addition, all laws and regulations are available to see.
Our portal offers various subscription models, including annual subscriptions with which all information can be accessed and downloaded. It also offers free access without the possibility of downloading files.
Since mid 2018, there have been over 1,300 registrations (of all kinds, including test accesses) on the portal, and in cooperation with our colleagues in Singapore and India, it has been rolled out internationally.
The Digital Academy is an online training platform for TÜV SÜD customers worldwide. It was founded in 2018, initially rolling out in India and Singapore before also launching in other countries.
The Digital Academy offers the opportunity to conduct training courses online. For ideal functionality, an internationally applicable learning management system (LMS) was implemented, and the Digital Academy Approval Board (DAAB) was installed as a neutral and virtual body for approving the digital learning objects developed for TÜV SÜD.
TÜV SÜD experts from various specialist areas are responsible for the content of the training courses, which are made available via a standardised LMS, giving our clients access to a global pool of technical know-how. The TÜV SÜD Academy in Germany provides strategic and technical support to the academies in other countries.
Since the launch, we have rolled out more than 40 internationally approved e-learning modules. Currently, there are over 30 further modules under development and more than 15 further modules in the planning stage.
OMV is one of the largest energy companies in Austria and a long-standing partner of TÜV SÜD. In early 2020, we won a tender for a 6-million-euro framework contract over five years for inspection services from the Austrian energy provider.
We convinced the client that with a multidisciplinary team of TÜV SÜD experts from all business areas within our Industry Service Division IS, and the possibility of bringing in a qualified external company via a cooperation agreement, we would be able to cover the entire tender.
The framework contract has us inspecting incoming goods and carrying out advanced NDT services, workshop inspections for pressure vessels, services of the inspectors for the turnarounds, and inspection services based on individual orders for the refineries at Burghausen and Schwechat.
By October of 2020, we had already started inspecting incoming goods and doing advanced NDT services. Step-by-step, we will expand these services.
Srinivasan S, Senior Manager - Business Development, India
A memorable experience of working with TÜV SÜD was the recognition I received for my contribution in generating revenue by promoting service, which was not part of my scope but was a need of the hour, Phishing Simulation services. I believe, as an employee, we should understand our Business very well so that we can provide our customers with services that they need when they need it. Since the prime task of our company is to bring up a system within our customer's organisation, we must imbibe value-driven focus in new employees.
Nawaz Inamdar, Team Leader Technical Customer Solutions, Germany
“My role sees me leading a team to design and implement solutions for corporate customers. What I love about my job is that it allows me to do something that I’ve always wanted to do: combine my interest in technology and business to create that perfect solution. Once, I led a project funded by the German Ministry of Education to design a competence management tool with four other companies in Germany. There were many discussions about how this technology should look, so I just went ahead and designed my own prototype. In the end, it was my design that they implemented. It was a proud moment!”
Xenia Kreuzer, Sales Manager/ Key Account Manager, Austria
“I work with some of the largest industrial companies in Austria and enjoy developing clients strategically. With some clients we start by testing the safety of their work equipment. The better I get to know the client the more I can help and recommend our expertise in other areas; for example, with tests that check the safety of their company apps. My job is never boring because the tasks and requests are extremely varied. We often convince clients to dare to break new ground when faced with complex challenges. It is enormously motivating when customers thank us for having solved their problems.“
Francis Dai, E-Commerce Business Development with testing, inspection, auditing, production, system certification, China
“My team and I endeavour to make online shopping a smoother, more enjoyable and reliable experience for the millions of consumers who use it. In e-commerce we, TÜV SÜD, carry out mystery shopping and testing, going through the entire consumer experience ourselves for a more thorough and accurate result rather than only receiving samples from suppliers and retailers for testing in traditional business. In addition, I’m particularly involved in the auditing service entrusted to e-commerce B2B platforms such as Alibaba.com in order to comprehensively verify the information of the sellers who sell products on the platform and therefore need a specific and involved type of quality assurance.”
Stefano Portelli, Sales Representative, Italy
“For me, a job needs two things: a positive atmosphere and the possibility to grow. I get both in my job as a sales representative for the Business Assurance division. As someone in a fairly junior position, I have a motivation to learn, and my time at TÜV SÜD is certainly an education. I’m lucky enough to be taught by those who aren’t just at the top of their game, but are also enthusiastic about what they do even after decades in the industry. From these incredible people I haven’t just learnt the theory of the work, I’ve learnt to be passionate about it too.”
