Tips for your successful application.

The first impression counts. Since the initial selection is often made based on your application, here are some tips to help you, to make a good first impression with your application.

  • Where do I apply for what?

    Vacancies outside Germany:

    • Please find all vacancies of the CLAAS Group here. Please note that you can send your application for a position outside Germany by e-mail. 

    Vacancies in Germany:

    • Please find all vacancies of the CLAAS Group here. When applying for a job in Germany, you apply exclusively via our applicant management system. You will find answers to questions about the system further down this site.

    Apprenticeships or dual-study programmes CLAAS Group:

    • Please search for an apprenticeship or dual-study programme in our career portal.

    Vacancies at our CLAAS dealers:

  • Your application documents

    Missing documents or too extensive documents make the selection process more difficult for our HR department and reduce your chances of successfully completing the first selection process.

    An effective application to CLAAS must include:

    • An individual letter of application stating the relevant job advertisement you want to apply for
    • A tabular CV
    • Copies of all relevant certificates

    Your application should make a good visual impression, i.e. the layout, system and typeface should be attractive and clear.
    Your cover letter should answer the following questions:

    • How did you find out about CLAAS (job portal, job advertisement in newspaper...)?
    • What are your qualifications and your interests?
    • What are your reasons for choosing your occupation?
    • Why are you applying specifically for a job at CLAAS?

    Please avoid standard letters with formulations such as "I would hereby like to apply for…". Try to give your application a personal touch. Your application is your first work sample and reflects your enagement, creativity and reliability.

  • Preparing for your interview

    Your first face-to-face meeting is approaching. We are excited about it and so are you. Take advantage of the opportunity to ask us plenty of questions and present yourself from your best side. To ensure that you are prepared for the interview, you should find out as much as you can about our company in advance. You will find a lot of information and useful facts about CLAAS on our website.
    During the interview, take advantage of the opportunity to convince us with your personality and your commitment. We look forward to your interview.

  • Application tips for an apprenticeship and dual-study program

    A complete application for an apprenticeship or dual-study programme at CLAAS must include:

    • An individual letter of application stating the apprenticeship occupation. Please note: This is no longer necessary for a technical apprenticeship in Harsewinkel, Germany.
    • A tabular CV
    • Copies of your last two school reports
    • Documentation of internships, certificates etc.

    How does the selection process work at CLAAS?

    The selection process for the businnes-oriented and technical apprenticeship is identical. Once the applications have been reviewed, there will be an online recruitment test. Based on the test results, a selection of applicants will be invited for a personal interview. The allocation of apprenticeship positions will be made on the basis of those interviews.

    Application deadline:

    We accept applications for the next training year as of June the year before (e.g. applications may be submitted as of June 2021 for applicants wishing to start their training in 2022).

Your online application at CLAAS in Germany

Please make sure you have around 30 minutes to spare when completing your first application in the CLAAS Career Portal. To simplify the process, have your documents (CV, photo, references, certificates, etc.) ready in a digital format. If your details are already stored in our Career Portal, you will only need a few minutes to complete your application because you can re-use your candidate profile.

As a matter of course, we will keep your information completely confidential and we will never disclose it to third parties or use it for any other purposes. Find our data protection declaration here.

  • How does the application assistant support me?

    Currently there is no suitable vacancy for me.

    If none of the jobs currently advertised are suitable for you, we recommend you to register in the CLAAS Talent Pool. You can also activate a Job Agent under the "Vacancies" tab. Our Job Agent will inform you by e-mail as soon as a position that might be interesting for you becomes available.

    Can I save my application and come back later?

    If you want to save your application rather than sending it off immediately, you can do so. Simply save your information, go back to it later to make any necessary changes, and send off your application when you are done.

    How should I submit my attachments (individually/together)?

    You can upload your files either individually or as a combined document. Please just select the appropriate attachment type. You only need to upload the attachment(s) once. It/they will then be visible with all your applications.

    How can I update my candidate profile once created?

    You can log into the Job Portal again at any time using the login details you chose. You can add, update and delete any information under the "Candidate profile" tab. 

  • What is the CLAAS Talent Pool?

    What is the CLAAS Talent Pool?
    The CLAAS Talent Pool is a platform that allows you to provide your personal profile to the HR departments in the CLAAS Group throughout Germany.
    You register yourself with your first application to CLAAS and an individual candidate profile is setup for you. The data relevant to your application is saved in this candidate profile so that you can use it for future applications. It also provides you with additional functions such as a status overview of all applications, automatic notifications and various options for your job search.

    Which advantages does the CLAAS Talent Pool offer?
    When filling open job positions, recruiters in the CLAAS Group throughout Germany can search the Talent Pool for suitable candidates. Of course, you can also block your profile at any time and reactivate it again later on.

    How can I activate/block my candidate profile for the Talent Pool?
    Before you send off your application, you will be asked in the last step whether you want to activate your profile. Tick the box and then send off your application. You can change this setting at any time on the last page of your candidate profile by ticking the box or removing the tick.

    I have applied for a specific job. Will my application be checked for other positions?
    If you have responded to a specific job advertisement, your data will only be considered for this job. However, you can also activate your profile for the applicant pool. This means that all HR departments at CLAAS companies throughout Germany have access to your profile and can consider it to fill open positions.

  • Can I also send a speculative application if I can't find a suitable job?

    Yes, a speculative application for our German vacancies is possible here. However, please note that our job agent will automatically inform you by e-mail as soon as a position of interest becomes available. Therefore we recommend that you register in the CLAAS Talent Pool. Under the tab "Vacancies" you can then create a job agent with your individual preferred criteria.
    Please apply speculatively for our further worldwide locations via mail. Here you can find your contacts.

  • How can I withdraw my application?

    In our Career Portal under the category "my applications" in your profile, you can change the status of your application. If you want to withdraw your application, mark the respective application and click the "delete/withdraw" button.
