RAMPF looks through documents
We will assess the application internally and pass it on to the relevant departments.
Reply and arranging interview
If your application meets with a positive response, we will get in touch to arrange a personal interview.
Interviews can take place in person or in the form of a telephone/video interview. You will be interviewed by representatives of the HR department and the responsible department. The purpose of this interview is to find out more about your personality, capabilities, and qualifications. Naturally, you will also have the opportunity to ask questions and get to know us as a potential employer.
The second interview is intended to reinforce the impression gained during the first meeting with you. We will answer any remaining questions you may have, talk about your future areas of activity, and try to establish whether you will be a good fit for RAMPF. Interviews are normally conducted directly with the relevant department. A representative from the HR department is generally present and possibly also a member of the management team.
If you win over the representatives of both departments, you will be offered a contract.
Leonie-K. Fecht | Student Trainee
"I first worked at RAMPF before I had started studying biomedical sciences. I got such a positive impression that I was keen to return to the company during my course. And then I was given the chance to work as a student trainee in Key Technology Management (KTM) at RAMPF Polymer Solutions. As I work mainly in product marketing, first and foremost this calls for plenty of creativity. In such an innovative, constantly growing company, it is important to come up with new ideas and strategies. Not only does the team call for this, but we’re happy to rise to the challenge. I can also apply what I have already learned to my work. I not only thoroughly enjoy working as a student trainee at RAMPF, but it expands and tests my knowledge. The insights I have gained into the different departments such as IT, R&D, and KTM helped me decide what I’d like to do after I graduate. Last but not least, I have been able to experience first-hand the processes and team work in each of the departments and the RAMPF Group as a whole. I really like the way each and every employee and their work is genuinely valued at RAMPF. The team spirit and collaborative staff effort really stand out, and you can always rely on your colleagues for help and advice.“
