What do you expect from your future employees?

We are looking for people who fully agree with our corporate values and embrace our corporate culture with the right amount of enthusiasm. It is particularly important to us that you do not mind taking the initiative, that you are committed, and that you are creative. However, do not forget to enjoy life, despite all this willingness to engage with your future employer and your positive energy. You do not think that work and leisure time have to be mutually exclusive. You enjoy what you do for a living and know how important it is to find the right balance between both aspects of your life to ensure that you are also happy and successful in the long term. We offer plenty of scope for decision-making and challenging responsibilities in a dynamic and international environment. We are therefore looking for target-oriented employees who apply their positive energy to unlocking new potentials, who are prepared to take on a high degree of responsibility for themselves, and who think and act in the best interest of the business at all times. Our teams are motivated and achievement-oriented, and you can expect a comfortable working atmosphere.

How long does it take from the moment I send off my application to being offered a position, and what happens during this process?

The application process varies depending on occupational profile, however, it will always take as long as it takes to find the right person for the right job. That is usually around two months. Our personnel department will carefully review your application on receipt. If your profile meets our expectations and there is a matching vacancy at one of our companies, we will contact you within 14 days of the stated closing date for applications and invite your participation in a recruitment interview over the phone. The second step is meeting your potential future direct line manager in person within the following month so they can get to know you. If we are impressed with what we have seen and heard of you so far, we will invite you to another meeting within the following fortnight. Once you have successfully completed all requisite interviews, we will send you an offer of employment within a further fortnight. If you have sent us a speculative application and we do not think that your profile matches what we are looking for in our applicants, we will usually let you know within one month of receipt of your application. You can also call us between 9 am and 5 pm, or send us an email at karriere@ uzin-utz.com. All email enquiries will be dealt with within three working days of receipt.

Can I apply to the Uzin Utz AG again if I've been turned down?

Of course you are welcome to apply again for another vacancy if you were turned down on one occasion. Maybe your profile is better suited to another vacancy, or maybe you have enjoyed some further personal development since your last application? We review and assess your profile and documents each time you apply to us, and start the application process from scratch.

Are all jobs shown as vacant actually still vacant?

Yes, any position shown as vacant has not been filled yet. We remove the advertised positions as soon as we have made an offer of employment to the applicant whom we consider to be the right candidate for the job. Until then, you are welcome to send us your application!

Does the Uzin Utz AG also offer trainee- and apprenticeships? And if so, for which occupations, and how long does a course take?

Yes, the Uzin Utz AG accompanies a great number of young, motivated trainees taking their first steps towards their chosen career as chemical process operator, laboratory technician, industrial business management assistant, precision engineer or warehouse management expert, or candidates studying for a Bachelor of Arts (completion of a 'Duales Hochschulstudium', a dual education system degree course). Our company, Germany's market leader in flooring installation, sealing and maintenance systems, not only provides excellent vocational training but also a range of more unusual extras such as community work experience, gaining international experience very early on in the traineeship by way of spending some time at one of our companies in another country, and becoming involved in an independent company (JuzinIOR) run exclusively by trainees and apprentices in order to become familiar with all the day-to-day responsibilities and challenges of running a business in an enjoyable, fun way. Find out more about the training we offer here. The closing date for applications for a trainee- or apprenticeship is in August of the year before the course is due to begin. All vacant trainee- or apprenticeship positions are listed in our current vacancies.
