How to apply


This is an overview of the application process within ILF Consulting Engineers:

We are constantly looking for motivated and talented people to join our team. Even if there are currently no job openings that suit your qualifications, we will be pleased to receive your unsolicited job application.

These candidates will be contacted in case of a match between their profile and future open positions.

You may find our job openings on our website, in local and international newspapers and on the most common job platforms. If you have further questions regarding a certain job, please refer to the contact person listed on the relevant job opening.

Send your application by email to the address stated at the bottom of the job advertisement. Please make sure that your application contains all relevant documents (e.g. CV, cover letter, job references).

We start with reviewing and pre-selecting the candidates.

In this process, we collect feedback from the relevant departments to select the best candidates for any particular position.


Your first interview will generally be held by an HR business partner together with an expert from the relevant department. Sometimes, the HR business partner may call you up beforehand to conduct a short phone interview to address some preparatory questions.

The general structure of the first interview is based on a semi-structured questionnaire. Every interview will also feature technical questions as well as a perusal of the candidate’s background.

In certain cases you may be invited to participate in an online behavioural assessment.

This helps us to get a better picture of how you fit in with us and where your strengths may be applied best.

For most positions, a second interview will be held. This is conducted to provide both the candidate and the hiring company with a better understanding of each other’s goals and qualities. In general, the HR business partner will be joined by the line manager and/or managing director for the second interview.

This second interview focuses more on technical details and personal skills and qualities.

If you have any questions about a vacancy or your application process, please refer to the contact person listed on the job opening which you would like to apply for.
