Application process - When you apply

From application to signed contract: Here’s how it works

We want to make sure you get the job that best matches your qualifications, skill-set and personal profile. We want you to have a career that brings value to you, Danfoss and the world – so we take the process of hiring quite seriously. Find out more about each step in the process below.

The application

The selection process starts when we receive your application. Our process follows the same standards globally, but it has local adaptations. To begin with, your application is considered by a recruiter, who is familiar with both the scope of the job and the Danfoss department that has an opening. If the recruiter thinks your profile and competencies match the job requirements, your application is forwarded for review to the hiring manager.

Tip: it is very important that you target your application and resume to fit the job in question as much as possible. Please also take care to complete the online application form accurately.

The interviews

If the hiring manager thinks your application matches the requirements for the opening, you will be invited to an interview.  Each interview is structured according to specific business requirements. An interview can consist of a conversation over video or telephone, followed by one or more face to face conversations and assessment tests. During the interview process, you will meet the hiring manager and possibly some of your future co-workers. We will get the chance to get to know you, and you will get the information you need to decide if Danfoss is the right match for you.

The decision

The final step in the hiring process follows local rules and legislations and might require references or a background check. If we agree that we should team up, the terms and conditions for your employment will be agreed based on local conditions. Candidates not selected in the final round will receive the information by e-mail or telephone, and we might consider you for other job openings.
