  • Testing and Inspection

    As a TÜV SÜD expert and test engineer, you will appreciate having free rein to pursue utmost accuracy whether you’re inspecting a vehicle for a periodic technical inspection (PTI) or assessing the industrial safety of plants and systems. No deficiencies will elude you, from testing to commissioning and final inspection, and you’ll always be able to advocate for the safest solution. You’re committed and passionate – and we support you all the way.

    You will be responsible for far more than checking boxes. You will work closely with customers to find solutions that enable them to best realize their projects while meeting relevant safety requirements. To get there, you will need to be determined and persuasive yet tactful and intuitive.


  • Projects and Knowledge Services

    As a project engineer at TÜV SÜD, your opportunities are endless. You will be analyzing every possible hazard and risk. You will assess even the most complex safety solutions and processes.

    You will help companies ensure that their new products meet all safety standards, a role that might also mean acting as a project manager or a business partner. This requires you to empathize with your clients while having the self-assurance to raise controversial questions – along with the will to make changes and reach constructive solutions.

    You will always stay abreast of the latest technological advancements and strive to understand the issues as thoroughly, reliably, and proactively as our clients rightly expect from TÜV SÜD.

  • Product Safety and Auditing

    As a TÜV SÜD auditor, you will possess deep knowledge in your area of expertise and raise the bar time and again to help our customers improve their operational processes and systems. Planning and implementing cost-efficient and process-focused audits and reviews is just one example. Your approach is thorough, accurate, and always authoritative.

    Your assessment will contribute to major decisions such as whether a new product will be approved on the market. The work can span a range of disciplines, from microbiological analysis of foods to auditing of medical device manufacturers.

    As an IT specialist, you will be responsible for testing the quality of our customers’ software and IT security and data protection. If you uncover vulnerabilities, you will need to display insight as well as understanding, and you should enjoy developing customized solutions.

  • Sales and Continued Training

    Sales activities at TÜV SÜD focus on close cooperation, both with customers and with our own operational units. It’s a role that also calls for consulting skills.

    With a background in (industrial) engineering or as an engineer with sales know-how, you engage in developing sales and marketing strategies and implementing them in appropriate action plans. You should also enjoy networking, as managing contacts with our existing customers is a further area of your responsibilities.

    Depending on your function, you may also be responsible for designing and selling training and seminar programs, including their quality assurance.

  • Corporate Functions

    You can also play a valuable role at TÜV SÜD without a background in engineering, natural sciences, or technology. TÜV SÜD also offers exciting positions for business management and law graduates, computer scientists, and professionals from other non-STEM disciplines.

    We’re always seeking talented individuals for corporate functions such as business services, which include controlling, purchasing, general administration, law and taxes, IT, human resources, and initial and continued training. After all, our operating units can only offer top performance when backed by expert administrative and organizational support.

    Depending on your role, you might also be involved in the design and implementation of new corporate strategies that will help ensure we’re always building on our successes as a company.
