Application: Your path to us 


You can find all current job vacancies via our global job search. Vacancies are only removed once a position has been filled, so you can be sure that our online job postings are up to date.

Our Job Matcher helps you to quickly find the most suitable vacancies that match your CV.

You can also set up a Job Agent that notifies you when new vacancies suitable for you become available.

If you find an interesting position via the global job search, please apply directly via the “Apply now” button in the job posting.

Once you have submitted your application, you will receive an automatic confirmation of receipt by email. Your application will then be reviewed in detail. If we require additional documents, we will send you a separate email and ask you to upload them via a link. We will endeavor to provide you with feedback on your application within two weeks.

You can view the status of your job application at any time in your applicant profile on our global job search.

In order to get an initial impression of you during the preselection process, our recruiting team will review your CV and relevant references. In addition to your professional qualifications, we are particularly interested in:

  • Your ambitions in the context of education and work
  • Your interests and activities outside of work, e.g., social commitment, sports, arts or culture
  • Your intercultural interest and experience
  • Additional training/qualifications, prizes, awards or scholarships

For selected positions such as our trainee programs or direct entry into research, the preselection process is supplemented by an online assessment.

Have you sparked our interest? If so, we may schedule a telephone interview for you with a member of the recruiting team. The telephone interview takes around 30 minutes and allows us to get an initial impression of your personality and skills. We will also be happy to answer any questions you might have at this point.

If you impressed us during the preselection process, your application will be forwarded to the relevant manager. They will ultimately decide if you are invited for an interview.

Last but not least, we would like to get to know you in person. On the day of your interview, we want to get a feel for your personality and give you the opportunity to meet potential colleagues and see what BASF is like as an employer.

If the interview also goes well, we will call you to discuss the next steps. We will offer you an attractive overall package comprising a competitive salary and attractive additional benefits as well as many opportunities to develop your personal and professional skills.

If we have won you over too, then we would like to welcome you to BASF. With our Welcome to BASF program, we want to ensure that you quickly settle in and feel like an integral member of the BASF team. This will allow you to successfully contribute your strengths from day one. We value your fresh perspective and your individual contribution.

How long does the entire application process take?

We do everything we can to complete the process as quickly as possible. As a rule, it takes about three months from the time you send us your application to when you receive your contract. The exact time it takes depends on various factors and may therefore vary. We ask for your understanding that finding a date for an interview can sometimes be a little challenging due to the many different parties involved. If you have applied particularly early, this may also mean that the process takes a little longer. We look forward to getting to know you and finding out together whether you are a good fit for our team.
