Job Portal



Take a look at the vacancies in our job portal – we're sure you’ll find something suitable.

What if a rejection comes?

Don't give up and try again

The Melitta Group is a big company with lots of operating divisions – which is why we’re always on the lookout for suitable additions to our team. So be sure to apply again if you see a vacancy that interests you. And if you apply for a position that we don't think you're a good fit for, our recruiters will always check whether we have another position which is suitable for you.



Answers to all your questions on entry opportunities: 

Yes, you can if you’ve found several interesting jobs. And it’s even easier if you indicate in your application which position(s) also interests you. In this case, you only need to put together your application documents once.

The best way to apply is via our online application form, which you can find in every job advertisement. This is not only the easiest and fastest way for you, but also ensures that we can and may process your data for the application process. This is not possible with paper applications or applications by e-mail due to the General Data Protection Regulation.

If the position is advertised on our Job Portal, we haven’t filled it yet and you can still apply for it. In the case of various external job search portals, it could be that positions which are already filled have not yet been removed from the system due to technical delays.

You can always find the name of your contact person in our Job Portal under the position you’re applying for.

Our recruiters will be happy to answer any questions you may have. It’s best to contact the person named in the job advertisement directly.

As soon as you’ve applied, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail from us. If you want to submit any further documents, you can simply reply to this email and attach your documents. This way, they’ll be directly in our system and ready for our recruiters.

As soon as we receive your application, we’ll send you confirmation. After that, we need a bit of time to take a closer look, but our goal is to get back to you within 10 working days. If we can’t manage that, we’ll contact you to let you know.

Yes, we’re happy to help you with your journey. The precise support depends on the location of our meeting. That’s why we'll send you more information about how we can help together with the invitation to our on-site meeting.
