Kiel as an employer

At Kiel, we are already working on answering the mobility questions of tomorrow. All employees pull together to achieve this. A highly qualified and dedicated team works each day to increase our range of products, to serve our customers as best we can, to open up new markets and to ensure that we can act in a more sustainable manner. In recognition of this, we also give a lot back to our employees: a secure job, social benefits and the ability to combine work and family life are just a few aspects. As a growing, international company, we also offer a range of occupations and individual development opportunities at our international branches. We are quick to give our employees responsibility and to give them the opportunity to participate and play their part. We also value flat hierarchies. We work to create an atmosphere in which our staff work as partners and feel valued. We are also very passionate about training junior employees – after all, they are the experts of tomorrow. As such, we offer youngsters apprenticeships for a range of occupations, as well as dual study programmes, and we give them the opportunity to complete internships and to write their dissertations whilst working for our company.

What we offer

As a stable, expanding and international company operating in the capital goods industry, we offer our employees secure jobs with individual development opportunities and extensive social benefits.

We give our employees the opportunity to choose their start and finish times themselves, as long as they adhere to the core working hours. A personal working time account provides a certain amount of flexibility here: it means, for example, that you can attend a doctor’s appointment during working hours without having to take a day’s paid leave.

We give our members of staff the opportunity to work part time – and not just during parental leave. If certain pre-requisites are met, individual part-time models can be agreed upon, either for a specific period of time or for the longer term. We try very hard to accommodate the wishes of our employees when it comes to their working hours.

We continuously encourage and train our employees through both internal and external training courses and sessions, including training on the job and internal job swaps within the company. There are no limits to the individual development opportunities available.

During the induction period for new employees, a mentor is appointed to advise on organisational matters and specific questions. A personal induction plan is also drawn up for each employee. This helps our “newbies” to quickly feel at home at Kiel.

Occupational physicians and company doctors are important for the health and well-being of our employees and represent a first port of call for all work-related concerns and health complaints. That is why our company doctors offer regular consultations for our staff.

Occupational safety is anchored into our company culture. In order to implement all regulations in the best way possible and to provide our employees with the best possible protection, we work together with the employers’ liability insurance association.

Depending on their position and location, our members of staff receive holiday pay and a Christmas bonus. Bonuses also form part of the remuneration programme for certain positions and at certain locations.

Depending on the location, we offer a company pension.

Operational integration management is a measure that concerns ill employees. It is intended for those who are repeatedly ill or who are ill for an uninterrupted period of six weeks in one year. One of the objectives of operational integration management is to identify causes of absence early on and to introduce measures to combat these. Furthermore, operational integration management gives the employee the opportunity to gradually return to work, so that the working relationship can be continued for as long as possible. We also support our members of staff when they return from parental leave or caregiver’s leave.

Depending on the location, we offer a company bike.
