Your way to Axpo – how to apply

Please apply online via our job portal.

Note: With the exception of internships, unsolicited applications will not be considered.

Haven't found the right position? Set up a job alert. You'll be informed of any suitable positions immediately.

Upon receiving your application we review your documentation. If your motivation, qualifications and experience match the job profile, you’re already a step closer.

Our first encounter will either be a face to face meeting at our local office or a video call via skype or other means. This gives both parties the opportunity to get to know each other and to do a first assessment of the fit. 

If you are still interested to continue and are indeed selected to proceed, you will then be asked to complete an online psychometric assessment, the results of which HR will discuss with you in the second round interview. At this point, you will also meet more Axpo people in person i.e. your future line Manager, his/her Manager and other stakeholders. Typically you may be asked to solve a specific problem or a case study which serve to assess your technical skills and you may also have a meet & greet session with the team, whom you would be working with.

Depending on the position you apply for, some additional checks may be necessary. You may be asked to participate in an assessment center, you may have to go through a background check and quite often some references may be checked as well (by phone or in writing)

If all goes well and all sides continue to want to work together, Axpo will make you an offer. In the case of extraordinary time pressure – e.g. at month’s end – we can issue an offer letter within one day. In all cases, you will eventually receive a full offer package, detailing not only base salary and bonus, but also benefits, pensions, etc. 

A tour provides you with useful, valuable information that you can use later to get oriented on your own. You’ll also get to meet other new employees and start expanding your Axpo network. An individual introductory course awaits you during the first few months. This includes the Axpo College, an introductory course to the energy industry, where you will learn all the essentials about energy production, distribution, trading and sales.

We wish you an energising start at Axpo.
