Apply to Voltavision: How to apply.
Do you want to apply to Voltavision, but want to know in advance what happens next? No problem! We'll guide you through the application process step by step and answer any questions you may have.
Step by step to your new job.
1. Apply – preferably online
If you want to make it easy for YOURSELF, send your documents in PDF format (no Office documents) to Lisa Wolf at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to make it easy for US, then apply directly online. You can also apply by smartphone. We look forward to hearing from you!
2. We then review your documents
We would like to give you feedback as soon as possible. At the same time, however, it is important for us to fully appreciate the effort you have put into your application. That's why we review your documents in peace and quiet based on the dual control principle. This may take a few days. So don't worry: You will definitely hear from us.
3. What makes you the right candidate?
If your application is included in the further selection process, you will receive an email from us where we ask you to answer a few questions. Here we want to get a feel for whether you fit into the spirit of Voltavision as an individual.
4. Phone interview
During the next step, we, Sarah or Lisa, will conduct a 30-minute telephone interview with you to get to know you better, introduce Voltavision to you in more detail and clarify any initial questions.
5. Introductory talk on Teams
If, after the phone call, both sides think, "cool, this could be a good fit!", a 60-90 minute discussion on Teams follows. Voltavisionaries, who you will potentially be working with closely, take part in this round of discussion. Here, you can also ask technical questions.
6. Get-to-know-one-another day
Still interested? If so, then we will invite you to a "get-to-know-one-another day". This give you the chance to experience the way we work and the atmosphere live in our offices, as well as get to know the other team members and gain an insight into our laboratories. Of course, it also gives us the chance to get to know you better as well.
Once we have clarified the personal parameters as best we can during our thorough application process, the final step is the appointment interview, during which we clarify all the contractual elements.
8. RUN WITH THE PACK!
We look forward to welcoming you on board as a new Voltavisionary! You can look forward to an exciting onboarding period and to becoming part of a larger vision: a vision of a cleaner and more climate-friendly future.

At what point is salary discussed?
