Application process

Our structured application process follows a clear path. That's how you will know how to apply to us online, how we will communicate with you and what we can expect from one another.

1. Find a job

You can find all our vacancies here. To ensure you don’t miss any new job vacancies, you can set up an individual job subscription. We will use this to inform you by e-mail about new job postings at BKW that match your search criteria. If you have questions about a position, please get in touch with the contact shown in the ad.

Unsolicited application

Your chances are greater if you apply online for a job posting. If you still want to send an unsolicited application, you can create a user account in our career portal. This way, all recruiters at BKW can see your profile and contact you if there are appropriate vacancies.

2. How to apply online

You submit your application online via the “Apply” button in the job posting. You then create a user profile on our career portal, where you save your contact details. Upload your application documents in a compact form – preferably as a PDF file. You can log in at any time to make subsequent changes to your candidate profile.

Documents required

  • CV
  • Cover Letter
  • References from previous employment and certificates (ideally in a single document)

3. Confirmation of receipt and examination of documents

After you apply, you will automatically receive a confirmation of receipt by e-mail. This confirms that we have received your application documents and will consider your application when selecting candidates. Your potential manager and the relevant recruiting partner will carefully examine your dossier and notify you as soon as possible about further steps.


The waiting time during the application process depends on the number of applications for a position. The confirmation of receipt assures you that we have received your application and will contact you again as soon as possible. If you are unsure or require a quick response, you can find contact details further down on the page.

4. Invitation to an interview

If you are a fitting candidate for the vacancy, we will invite you to an initial interview to get to know one another personally. If possible and reasonable, the initial interview at least will be held via videoconference. Depending on the position, we may hold several interviews with you and give you job-specific tests or an assessment. We will inform you regularly throughout the process about the status of your application and will be happy to answer your questions at any time.
