Afterwards we will invite you to one or two more appointments, depending on the position. Here you will get to know the team, work on cases and discuss them with several members of the team. In the last step we will invite you for a culture fit interview to see if our core values suit you and you’d like to become part of our team.
2. What should I take into account when applying?
It is important for us to understand why you are the right person for the job. Your application is the first impression. Tell us what drives you, what makes you enthusiastic.

Yes. As long as they are online, they are valid. Sometimes we are looking for more than one person for one position, therefore some jobs are online for quite some time.
