When do internships/jobs at DÖRKENGROUP start, and how long do they last?

We know that students have many commitments. As a result, we aim to offer you a degree of flexibility. Please specify the preferred timeframe in your written application (e.g. for an internship or final thesis), or which weekdays or months (working student).

My targeted degree programme qualification is bachelor/master/‘Diplom’. Can I apply to DÖRKENGROUP with it?

People always take centre stage with us. As such, your degree programme is not the sole determining factor, but rather your (practical) experience, interests and goals as well. For working in certain areas of the company, however, it can help if you already have a master or ‘Diplom’, or are even working towards a doctorate. If there are requirements like this, they will be specified in the respective job description.
