Starting Your Career at IABG

Starting Your Career at IABG

Whether you have professional experience, are looking for a direct start after studies or want to gather practical experience during the course of your studies – we offer you a multitude of opportunities for starting your career at IABG. Above all we are looking for experts and managers (m/f) and students with a background in aeronautics and aerospace, (business) information systems, engineering, electrical, information and communication technology, mathematics, physics, industrial engineering, high frequency and communications engineering, as well as skilled technicians, electronics technicians and mechanics.

If you discover a suitable position on our career pages, we invite you to upload your complete application documents (cover letter, curriculum vitae and relevant diplomas and certificates) via the online application form. Not the right job for you at the moment? We also look forward to your meaningful unsolicited application which we will forward to the relevant department.

If you have any more questions about jobs or the application process, please get in touch with our team from the human resources department.

How does the application process work at IABG?

Receipt of application

The simplest and least complicated way is to use our online application form to send your complete application documents for a posted vacant position or as an unsolicited application. In this case you will receive a confirmation of receipt by e-mail immediately after your documents have been transmitted. In the next step, we will check your documents in the human resources department and then forward them to the relevant department. Thank you for your understanding that this process takes a certain time. No matter how we decide, you will receive a response from us as soon as possible.

Personal interview

If your profile fits, we look forward to meeting you in person so that we can get to know each other. This is usually at our headquarters in Ottobrunn. In some cases a telephone interview will be held before the meeting in person. In order to give you a comprehensive picture of IABG and your future range of duties and for us to make as complete a picture as possible of your qualifications, we have a multiphase process with two interviews which will be attended both by members of the specialist department (managers and possibly future colleagues) and by staff from the human resources department. The focus of the first interview is on a detailed description of your previous background and your qualifications. At the same time we will inform you about IABG and possible future projects and specific activities.  The aim of the first interview is for both sides to get a personal impression and see whether we come up to our mutual expectations. This is why it is important for us to have a one-on-one dialogue with you and also give you ample time to ask your questions. Usually you will receive a response from us within two weeks of the first interview. If both sides wish to continue the process, we will invite you to a second interview. The second interview concentrates more on interdisciplinary topics and you will have the opportunity of meeting your immediate superior. We will also discuss general conditions, present our employee benefits and answer any further questions you have.

Decision phase

The decision as to whether we can envisage working together in the future we normally make within one or two weeks of the second interview. If we wish to welcome you as a new employee at IABG and you too wish to join us, your appointed HR business partner will get in touch with you personally to discuss the contract details. After you have sent the signed employment contract to us, all further preparations will be made internally to give you a warm welcome on your first day of work with us.
