Which candidates are suitable for key account management positions at Hays?
Most of our key account management employees have a degree in economics, liberal arts or social sciences. However, career changers with or without an academic degree are also welcome, as it is much more important to us that you have the relevant skills to be successful in sales and recruiting. We will teach you everything else in our Hays Learning Center and your mentor will support you during the introductory phase.
What should I have studied in order to apply for a position in the engineering or IT area?
You should have completed a technical course of study in the fields of engineering or computer sciences. In the fields of automotive, high-tech and mechanical engineering, the demand is particularly high. But we are also regularly looking for graduates and young professionals for many other areas. In addition to the field of study, practical experience which you have gained during internships, working student jobs or your thesis is of particular importance to us.
How can I apply?
Once you have found a suitable position, the best and quickest way to apply is to use our application form.
Can I also send a speculative application?
If the advertised positions do not suit you, you can always send us a speculative application by using our online application form. or via e-mail to email@example.com
Can I still apply for a job advert even if it has been online for some time?
You can apply for a position as long as it is advertised on our career website. Since we often need several candidates for the same position and hire all year round, individual positions may be advertised for a longer period of time.
To whom do I address my cover letter?
Choose a general form of address ("Dear recruiting team"), since several recruiters are responsible for the same area. Therefore, a personalised communication is not required.
Can I apply for several positions or locations?
This is basically possible. However, it makes more sense to apply for only one job and state in your cover letter which jobs and locations you are also interested in.
Can I reapply after having received a rejection?
Yes – just because we chose someone else at a certain point in the application process doesn't mean that there isn't a suitable position for you at Hays. You are welcome to apply again at a later time.
What do I have to consider when uploading my documents?
Save your documents (cover letter, curriculum vitae and relevant certificates) as a PDF if possible and put them in one document. Alternatively, you can use the [Ctrl] key to select and attach all documents at once. We support all common formats such as PDF, Doc, Docx or JPG. Please note that the total size of your files must not exceed 10 MB.
