How to apply

In this digital age, we look forward to applications by e-mail. The same rules apply as for postal applications. Please remember to attach all relevant files.

The easiest thing to do is to include everything in a single PDF document (maximum 5 MB). This way, nothing will get lost and the human resources manager has all of your data at a glance.

You can find the appropriate e-mail address in the relevant job advertisement or on the job board.

The classic application via post is still very welcome. We need a cover letter, your résumé and copies of any letters of reference/qualification certificates that may be relevant to the position for which you are applying; these are also required when you send us an unsolicited application.

In addition, you should also include information about the area in which you wish to work and your possible starting date.

You will find the name of the relevant recipient and the correct address in the advertisement of the job for which you are applying, or on the job board.

Questions & Answers

You can apply directly to the individual subsidiary. If there is more than one country or subsidiary which interests you, you can also apply through the ALSO Holding AG Central Application Service. They will carefully review your application and forward it to any subsidiaries/countries that have corresponding vacancies.

Unfortunately, we cannot comment on this, because the length of the application process is different for each position. We will do our best to respond to you as quickly as possible.

If you are applying for a specific opening, the description will almost always include information on whom to contact. Otherwise, send your application to the human resources department at the relevant subsidiary. When in doubt, give us a brief call and we will assist you.

A good application consists of a cover letter, résumé, and current letters of reference/certificates. It should give us an initial impression of your professional and personal qualities. You will find further information about this topic under Tips for applying.

We update our job offers daily. Once a position is filled, it no longer appears on our website. Therefore, you can assume that all vacancies are still vacant.

Of course, you can re-apply after a rejection for any open position at ALSO.
