      Making your application

      Our selection process is as much about whether we’re a good fit for you, as whether you’re a good match for us. This two-way process relies on us both sharing as much information as possible.

      Online form

      Applying at Covestro is quick and easy. When you’ve found a job that interests you and meets your expectations, you can apply uploading a PDF, Word document or even your LinkedIn profile. by parsing your PDF or Word DOC or even by uploading your LinkedIn Profile. Alternatively, you can fill in our online form, so we can get to know you better.

      This is an opportunity to share information about yourself, your skills and your achievements. You don’t have to fill in every section, but you must complete all the fields marked with a red asterisk. You may also upload attachments that total up to 5 MB in size.

      You also have the opportunity to include a covering letter. Use this to tell us why you’re interested in the role and to highlight your qualifications and experience that show how you’d fit in at Covestro. For example, tell us about when you’ve shown curiosity or courage in your work, or give an example of your individual thinking.


      If you pass our selection process, our recruitment team will contact you to set up an interview. This may be a phone interview, in person, or as part of an assessment. The main purpose is to get to know each other and find out if we’re a good fit.

      We try to make it fairly relaxed, because we want to meet the ‘real’ you. However, you’ll get the most out of it if you do some preparation. For instance, think about how your qualifications and experience make you the best person for the role. It’s also a good idea to prepare some examples of how you reflect our culture and values – when you’ve been curious, courageous or worked in multi-national or multi-disciplinary teams. Don’t forget to prepare some questions for us!

      If we decide to make you an offer, we’ll contact you to talk through the details and sign an employment contract.
