  • What is the recruitment process at TÜV SÜD like?

    Once you discover a job posting at TÜV SÜD that interests you, please apply using our online recruitment system. You can apply for one or more than one job posting or submit a general/ unsolicited application. When your application is received, it will be carefully considered by both the HR department and the corresponding hiring department. If approved, you will be invited to a first job interview. Depending on the target position and career level, you might also be invited to at least one more job interview and to do further selection steps such as going through an assessment centre. The number of interviews and your interviewers are carefully chosen and depend on the job level and position needs.
    The recruitment process provides an opportunity for you to get to know TÜV SÜD better. You are welcome to ask questions to determine if there is a suitable match between the job opening and your experience and career interests. For further information check our full recruitment process here.

  • Are all of the published job postings still vacant?

    To the best of our abilities, we try to ensure all of our job postings are up-to-date but there may be a possibility that a position might be closing just as you are applying for it.

    In this case, we will of course inform you about the job closing and you can decide whether to delete your profile or become part of our talent pool. We will then be reviewing your profile again for other positions that might be a good match for you. In your account you can see at any time if we transferred your application to another open position. You can also update your profile and make relevant additions to your application for the new opening in your account. Of course, you can also choose to withdraw your application if the position is not interesting to you.

    If you are already registered at our career portal, you can login using the option “User Account”.
