Group-Wide Job Market Launched

Volkswagen employees now have the opportunity to access job vacancies throughout the Volkswagen Group in Germany.

The message is clear: jobs for employees, including at other brands. 

When the “Group Job Board” was launched, Porsche alone had posted more than 200 vacancies. Jobs are also being offered by Volkswagen Financial Services, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Volkswagen Group Components, MAN Truck & Bus and Audi. More jobs will be added bit by bit.

“The Group Job Board ensures transparency on job openings within the Group and makes it easier for employees to quickly obtain information about other brands and divisions without complication, allowing them to find current job opportunities that may match well with their own prospects,” says Volkswagen Chief Human Resources Officer Gunnar Kilian, adding, “Use the tool! Have a look at the Group Job Board and get an overview of what kinds of career opportunities the Group can offer you.”

Employees at the brands listed are free to send unsolicited applications. They will be given preference over external candidates. After all, the Group prefers to look to its current workforce to see if it can hire internally before posting a job publicly.

Employees whose positions are ending should also get information from the Recruiting Services team (Recruiting & Talent Marketing) about suitable job postings. However, unlike with the existing Global Job Board Management system, only pay scale and pay scale+ jobs are initially being posted on the Group Job Board.

How to apply

The latest job offers are posted directly on the homepage – ranging from “Operational Environmental Protection Specialist” at Audi to “E-Drive Systems Test Manager” at MAN in Munich and “Test Specialist for Drive Train Development” at Volkswagen Group Components in Wolfsburg.
If you want to click your way through all the vacancies on offer, the “Job Exchange” subsection is the place for you. There, employees can display jobs sorted by brand. You can also search specifically for matching profiles using the text search function. The Group-wide job market can be accessed online via Group Connect. Its creation had been agreed on in the Zukunftspakt (Pact for the Future) in order to make personnel changes transparent. The internal job market for the Volkswagen brand was launched more than a year ago.
