Please Note: All official Henkel North America communication will come from a Henkel Email Address ("first name.last email@example.com"). All final interviews are conducted in person. Henkel hires candidates once they have undergone a drug and background check.
For the first step you will complete your comprehensive online application at our Henkel job portal. You will need your résumé (preferably as a PDF file) and your letter of motivation. Please make use of the opportunity to upload further relevant documents (e.g. certificates, overview of grades), so we have all documents at our hands, which are relevant for our decision. In case you have a LinkedIn-profile, you can comfortably import your data with one click.
After a first screening, we would like to get to know you during a telephone interview. We will talk about your career history and your goals. You will also get more information about Henkel and the position that has to be filled.
In the personal interview with future managers we tackle more profound questions about you – from your professional knowledge to your goals. You can ask questions about the position, your future team or career opportunities. Depending on the position, there will be a second interview.
If you impress us at each stage, and we think you are a match for one of our open positions, you will receive a job offer. If you share our values and are looking for great career opportunities, you’ll accept the offer.
Please compose your documents carefully and watch out for spelling mistakes
Use a serious e-mail address in the format firstname.lastname@example.org
Please always attach the reference number and name of the position.
In our job portal you can upload files with a size of up to 5 MB. Please make sure to resize your documents by reducing the resolution.
Please collect all documents into one PDF in the following order: letter of motivation, résumé and additional documents (references, credentials and certificates).
Write and design your letter of motivation individually. Experienced HR employees will detect copied standard phrases.
Please check your online application and documents very carefully.
Choose a quiet surrounding. This means should you be on the road, just call back later.
Do not interrupt and always stay respectful and let the other person finish the sentence.
Take your time, even when you are nervous, to speak clearly and slowly.
It is expected that you have a good overview of your application documents and the statements you made.
Ask questions and show that you are interested.
