Job application management

Fresenius’ goal is to be the employer of choice for highpotential applicants. We have therefore extended our personnel marketing activities with the addition of a target university concept, intensifying our contacts with 16 selected universities by taking part at careers guidance fairs and through presentations by our staff. This is designed to inform potential applicants even more effectively about the opportunities that our Group of companies offers and to encourage them to start a career with Fresenius.

The online application management system introduced in 2008 has established itself as a modern recruitment instrument and effectively supports the application process. In its first full year, over 400 job offers were published and over 15,600 applications were received through this system. In addition, we received over 4,600 unsolicited applications. We also used the system for the first time to advertise and fill apprenticeship places for 2010. We have also started to use it as an international internal job vacancies platform in individual business segments. In future, we intend to expand the functions for managing the extensive pool of unsolicited applications and to enter new recruitment channels, especially in the social networking area.
