Public Relations Communication

We connect people: the diverse world of corporate communications.


Trust contributes significantly to business success – and it is based on open and clear communication. We are firm believers of this fact. And this is why all our communications must at all times be comprehensive, consistent, and above all credible. Credibility is the most important value of our organization and our globally connected team secures its implementation. Our task is to inform about corporate objectives, visions and decisions, new products, applications, and markets. We also keep the public up-to-date on the latest research news from BASF. Our staff of course, also expects to be kept fully informed about decisions and rightly so, and we ensure that they get any news first.

We look for employees from all different fields. This ranges from social sciences and arts to natural sciences and economics. A keen interest in communications work is of course essential.

We look forward to receiving applications from communications specialists with professional experience in response to our PR and communication job postings.

Corporate communications involve a diverse range of activities. Key topics of corporate communications include press work, employee relations, brand management, market and product communications, government relations, corporate events, and a lot more besides. Communication employees can expect a broad and exciting field of activity with many opportunities for development in diverse areas.

Corporate communications offers two branches for development – in either PR or marketing communication. In both areas, you get to be responsible for new activities and projects beyond your organizational boundaries. A talent review is held once a year, in which you can discuss your further development within the company with your manager and express your wishes.

  • ensure that a 'one voice' policy is followed worldwide
