All the jobs posted on our website are up to date. So you are welcome to apply for them. If you can’t find a job offer that matches your profile, you can submit an unsolicited application.
What are the working hours?
At DELO a full-time job amounts to 38.75 hours a week. We use a flexible work time model, with a core period of 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. On Fridays, employees are free to enjoy their weekend as of 1:00 pm. Different working hours apply to certain areas of the company. Our production employees, for instance, work in two shifts. However, also in this case, we ensure that our employees can achieve the best possible work-life balance.
Do you have shift work? In which departments is there shift work? Which shift model do you have?
At DELO a classic shift work with early and late shifts (until max. 10:00 pm) is only common in production. The introduction of a night shift is not planned and Saturday work (early shift only) is an exception. In addition, our colleagues in maintenance work in a production-supporting shift, whereby the late shift ends here already at 7:00 pm.
Can I still apply for a job if I only want to work part-time?
Our job offers are mainly full-time jobs. We mainly fill part-time vacancies in-house. If we do post a part-time vacancy this will be indicated in the job description.
Can I still apply for a job if I have no experience of adhesives so far?
Of course you can. Adhesives are a very special topic and many new colleagues have little or no experience of them. For this reason all new colleagues are given intensive training when they join the company. The duration of training depends on the subsequent area of employment and can take up to 3 months. Our DELO Academy organizes and holds the theoretical and practical courses.
How are new employees introduced and trained at DELO?
On their first two days at DELO, along with all other new colleagues, they are given an introduction to the company. Different departments present themselves and you gain a very good insight into the activities of the individual divisions in a tour of the company.
Depending on their subsequent work area, colleagues not destined for technical jobs take part in a course lasting several days (theory and practice) in order to familiarize themselves with our products and the principles of bonding technology.
If your new job is technical, your full-time course when you join the company will last up to three months, during which you will receive in-depth training.
After the course you will be trained in the department where you are to work. In addition, all newcomers are assigned a mentor from another department to support them. They will be on hand to help while your training phase and to answer any questions.
