To give you a general understanding of how our recruitment process works, we have outlined the basic steps below. In addition, you can expect local variations to our process from country to country.

We look forward to welcoming you!

The screening process 

In the initial screening process, we screen and evaluate your application and CV. We look at your employment and career path patterns, education, extracurricular activities, accomplishments, results etc. Most importantly, we need to be able to evaluate whether the job matches your personal and professional qualifications. Furthermore, we need to be able to get a sense of you as a person before selecting the right candidates, who will progress to the personal interview.     

Expectations during an interview

Our aim is to hire the right candidate with the right competencies to the right job, and this is what we cover during the interview. If you are invited for an interview, it is a good idea to be well prepared. You could gather relevant information about the current Grundfos company to show your understanding of our business.

During the interview, we expect to get to know you and your qualifications. We want to hear about your previous experience, your motivation, your results and your expectations to the new role. We expect this dialogue to be open and trustworthy as we base our decision on this dialogue

To provide you with the opportunity to decide if the job matches your expectations, we off course also provide you with insight into the framework and opportunities in the job, as well as in the team and department.

For some positions, you may be asked to complete an online personality profile test or prepare a case. You will always receive information about this before the interview.


If you have been chosen for the job, we collect references from previous employment in order to learn more about your results and collaboration. You will most likely be asked during or after the interview about potential references. Naturally, this only takes place in agreement with you. We will only contact current employers or background check if you are offered the job. 

The next step

If we offer you the job, your new manager will contact you directly, and soon after that we will send you the contract. You will also receive a link to our online on-boarding platform called Hello to get you familiarised with Grundfos before your first day at work.

If you are not invited to an interview, we will let you know by email. If you have attended an interview, but will not be offered the job, you will be contacted by the recruiter directly.
