How to apply to Ottobock

Prepare application documents

Let’s start with the best news. You don’t have to write a cover letter, but you are welcome to do so if you wish. Try to give us the truest possible picture of yourself with your CV and your certificates. Ideally, you’ll already have digital copies of your CV and your certificates available so you can easily upload them in your online application.

Online application in the career portal

To ensure we can process your application quickly and efficiently, we accept online applications only through our career portal. It’s not hard at all. You already have all the documents ready.
Please note that you will not be able to access our job portal from 12 to 19 January 2021 due to technical reasons. Beginning 20 January 2021, you can use the website once again as normal to submit job applications.

Selection process

If your online application meets our expectations, the next step is an online aptitude test. Depending on the job, the test will include questions on your general knowledge or maths skills, for example.
If your test result meets the requirements, we will invite you to a video meeting with the trainer. If that goes well, the next step is selection day. This is where your personality really counts. There are also practical exercises and a look at your chosen field. The day ends with a personal interview.

The decision

We do our best to move through the application procedure as quickly as possible, of course.
We get in touch with you shortly after the selection day to let you know whether you will be offered a training position.
We wish you the best of luck!
