FAQs

General questions

Can I drop by and hand in my application personally?

As BLG works with an Internet-based application process, we would ask you to apply directly online.

How do I apply for a position abroad?

If you are interested in a job or internship at one of our sites overseas, please send your application to the site contact specified on our home page.

Can I apply "on spec" at any time?

If there is nothing suitable for you listed under our vacancies, you can send a speculative application at any time. If you do so, please specify the area in which you are interested and the date as of when you are available.

If I've sent a speculative application, how long should I wait before I call?


With a speculative application, the checking takes a little more time since it is generally not an application for a specific position. We consult with different working areas in order to ascertain whether we have something to offer you.

Therefore, we ask for your understanding. We will contact you as soon possible without you having to call.

After I register, how will I know that my data has been received?

After you successfully complete the online application, you will receive a message on your screen. Straight after this, an acknowledgment of receipt is sent to your e-mail address. If you haven't received an e-mail, please check the spam folder in your e-mail system.

Are the costs of the journey reimbursed?

Yes. We generally reimburse you the travel costs for a 2nd class train journey after submission of the original receipts.

Can I apply to more than one site or for several positions at the same time?

Yes, you can apply in parallel for different jobs. Multiple applications do not affect ongoing applications. If you do make more than one application, please adjust your cover letter for the relevant position in each case.

What should my application contain?

The composition of an online application corresponds to that of a conventional written application. It should contain a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, attachments, and it should specify your earliest possible starting date and your salary expectation.

Specific questions about training

How does the selection procedure work?

At BLG, training is just a click away! In Bremen, we are using a fast and uncomplicated online procedure where, besides professional suitability, the selection particularly depends on personal prerequisites. In the future, we are looking to adopt this procedure in other sites also.

What happens after my training?

As the training represents an important part of securing skilled personnel for the company, trainees who graduate from the program successfully and have shown personal commitment will receive a permanent contract.

Following this training, are there options for advanced training?

We are very keen for our employees to have advanced training. Therefore, we offer employees challenging continuous and advanced training programs to provide the optimum individual support.
