Our recruitment process

To give you a general understanding of how our recruitment process works, we have outlined the basic steps below. Please keep in mind that you can expect local variations to our process depending on the country and the type of job you are applying for. We look forward to welcoming you!

Application and CV 

We do our best to create job advertisements which provide you with good insight into the specific job as well as the required competencies and experiences. All our open positions can be found at www.grundfos.com/jobs. When you apply, please include a CV and a cover letter. You can also attach other relevant supporting documents.

The screening process  

In the initial screening process, we screen and evaluate your CV and cover letter. 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. All applications we receive are handled with respect and in strict confidence.

If you are not invited to a personal interview, we will let you know by email.

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 Grundfos 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 online assessments or prepare a case. You will always receive information about this before the interview. Depending on the specific job and country, you may expect more than one interview during the recruitment process. 


If you have been chosen for the job, we often collect references from previous employments to learn more about your results and collaboration. This is one of the last steps in the recruitment process and only takes place in agreement with you. We do not contact references before obtaining your consent. Furthermore, we will only contact current employers or background check if you are offered the job.

The next step 

If we offer you the job, you will be contacted by either your new manager or a recruiter who will present the job offer as well as terms and conditions to you. Most often, we will have touched upon the terms earlier in the process, so you are aware. Soon after that we will send you the contract. 

After the contract is signed, you will receive a link to our online pre-boarding platform “Hello” to get yourself familiarised with Grundfos before your first day at work. If you have attended an interview, but will not be offered the job, you will be contacted by the recruiter directly.
