Pupils

Where and how can I apply?

What educational achievements does Hansgrohe expect me to have?

We are looking for committed and motivated trainees who want to make an impact, just like we do! Check out the Traineeships tab for other information that is important for us.

Pupil placements

What should you put in the covering letter?

The most important thing is stating the area and timescale in which you would like to do your placement. Are you interested in a commercial or technical profession? Do you perhaps already have a specific department in mind which you would like to get an insight into? The more concrete the information you provide, the better it is.

What information should there be in the curriculum vitae?

For a start, your full contact details - so that we can get in touch with you if we need to. Information about the schools you have attended (in chronological order) and (if applicable) completed placements, along with foreign language and computer skills should all be included in the curriculum vitae. We would also like to know something about your hobbies.

Do I have to include a certificate?

Full application documentation includes a covering letter, a curriculum vitae and certificates. So that we can get a comprehensive overview of your achievements, you should attach copies of your last three school report certificates.

Can I also do more than one placement at Hansgrohe?

Our pupil placements act as careers guidance during your time at school. So that we can offer as many school pupils as possible an insight into our company and into a variety of professional fields, each applicant can only do one placement.

I have now finished school. Can I do a pupil placement to bridge the gap before my studies begin?

Unfortunately, our offer of a one-week placement is intended exclusively for school pupils. Enrolled students have the opportunity to complete a four to six-month practical semester at Hansgrohe. You can find the current posts on our homepage.

When should I apply?

You should apply to us about 3-5 months before the date you want to start.

I would like to do a placement for several weeks at Hansgrohe. Is that possible?

Our pupil placements are designed to last one week. It is only possible to have a longer time after prior consultation.

When will I be invited to attend an interview?

We do not carry out any selection interviews for applications for pupil placements.

Can I also do a voluntary placement at Hansgrohe?

We supervise both BOGY and BORS placement pupils (careers guidance for grammar schools/general secondary schools) at Hansgrohe, along with pupils who want to do a voluntary placement (in the holidays).

Why do I have to fill in a questionnaire with my application?

Filling in a questionnaire with online applications helps us design the best possible application process.

What is the procedure for a pupil placement?

You can apply online for a pupil placement. You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt by e-mail immediately after applying. So, make absolutely sure you spell your e-mail address correctly.

Training

Where and how can I apply?

You can apply online for all traineeships.

What documents do I have to provide for my application?

An application comprises a covering letter, a curriculum vitae and certificates. We are also very happy to receive references (letters of recommendation). Do you have an interesting blog or a website which we should have seen? The Application Wizard gives you the opportunity to save internet links for us.

The curriculum vitae is the core document in your application file and it is absolutely essential to include it. It should be clearly structured and provide a quick, informative overview of your school education and training history. The decision about whether to include a photo of yourself is entirely up to you.

Certificates substantiate the stages in your curriculum vitae and ensure the documentation has no gaps.

 

Can I do a placement prior to training?

With the time for leaving school drawing ever closer, you still don't know which profession is right for you? Then a placement is what you need. We are happy to offer you the opportunity to explore professional life: in the context of a pupil placement or a voluntary placement during the holidays. This will give you an insight into your profession of choice and enable you to experience day-to-day business activities at close hand and to pitch in yourself.

When should I apply?

There is no official closing date for applications at Hansgrohe. That means: The earlier you let us have your documents, the better your chances are of the training position not yet having been filled.

Can I also apply for several positions?

Can I also apply speculatively?

If you cannot find any suitable job description on our job vacancies pages, you are also welcome to apply speculatively to us. With a speculative application, it should be clear from your letter which of our areas you are interested in.

Which departments will I work in?

A personal training schedule ensures that you learn all about those areas that are of interest to you and form part of your job description.
