Tips for your application

Tips for your application

You want to convince a potential employer with your application - but how? To make the first step easier, we asked Mr. Sören Krones, an employee in the HR department at our Hamburg site, a few questions.


Mr. Krones, what should an application to Aurubis include?

Above all, a CV in a tabular format is key. We're especially interested in the stages of the applicant's life. It doesn't matter if it's a school internship, managerial positions or free time activities - it's important to us what the applicant has done up to now both professionally and in his free time. Hobbies and interests help provide a clearer picture of the applicant. Certificates may also be sent along. The applicant shouldn't forget his contact information under any circumstances.

An application should always include a convincing cover letter as well. We'd like to know why the applicant is interested in Aurubis and for which department or position he's applying and why. Goals for the next few years are also exciting to read. The cover letter should be short and to the point.

Salary expectations and notice periods are also relevant for us, especially for higher positions.

Positions – that's the key word. How can I find out about current vacancies at Aurubis?

Most of our vacancies are in our job market in the job offers section. Applicants can find vacancies for apprenticeships, dual study programs and entry-level positions, as well as jobs for experienced applicants.

We post some of the vacancies on the local homepages only, so it's always a good idea to take a look at the site pages as well

And how can I apply once I've found a job that fits my qualifications?

For our vacancies in Germany, applicants can apply directly via our online applicant management system. Applicants are automatically transferred there when they click on the "Apply here" button in the job posting. For all other sites, the applications can be sent directly to the appropriate contacts on site by e-mail. The addresses are included in the job postings.

Applicants don't need to worry about the security of their data. This is guaranteed by SSL encryption

And how long will my information be saved there?

The information is deleted after the vacancy has been filled. If the applicant's profile is interesting for other vacancies, we will inform the applicant separately and ask to save the information for a longer period.
