1. How to apply

The application process begins by submitting a job application on Neles’ career website. All our open summer trainee positions can be found here. If you are applying for the first time, you will need to create a candidate profile. Your candidate profile enables you to apply for positions you are interested in. You can apply for as many positions as you like. We receive job applications only via our recruitment system. You will receive a confirmation e-mail when we have received your application.

Our goal during the application process is to get to know you. With your application you are introducing yourself to us, so it’s worth the effort to make sure your CV and cover letter are in order. Try to be concise and clear when telling us about your expertise and wishes, but we strongly encourage you to highlight your experience and accomplishments. Describe your strengths with keywords and emphasize the qualities you believe fit the position you are applying for. In addition to your experience, we would also like to know why you’re interested in the position you’re applying for, what you are passionate about, and what you see yourself doing in the future.

Please note that you will not be able to edit your application after submitting it, so be sure to check it before sending it. It is recommended to attach your text files in PDF format so that the formatting stays the same.

We will review applications during the application period; in some cases, we may conduct interviews and choose candidates even before the end of the application period. Be sure to submit your application early!

Feel free to contact us at careers@neles.com if you have any technical issues with the application.

2. Recruitment process

Recruiting managers will go through the applications and choose potential candidates for the next stage. The managers will be in contact with the chosen candidates either by phone or by e-mail.

We will contact all applicants as soon as the recruitments go forward. Please wait patiently for information about the recruitment process from us. We will be in touch for every position you have applied for.

3. Job interviews

We will invite candidates for interviews personally. Our recruitment process usually includes one interview, and some recruitments also include a brief interview via phone before the actual interview. Most of the interviews will take place after the application period has ended, but there may be interviews for some positions before the application period has ended.

The interview is a good opportunity for you to ask us questions and to hear more about the internship you are applying for, the team and the company. We recommend that you prepare in advance to tell us about yourself and to think of a few questions you want to ask us during the interview.

The interview is usually conducted by the hiring manager and, in some cases, with participation from a recruitment specialist.
