Attractive remuneration

Good pay for good performance. We think this is only fair. The remuneration system is based on our company collective agreement, which offers a very attractive basic salary. The individual amount of your remuneration ultimately depends on the activities and responsibilities you undertake with us based on your expertise and experience.

35-hour week

The collectively agreed working time with us is 35 hours over a 5-day week. This leaves you more time each day for your private life and relaxation. After all, not only should it be possible theoretically to achieve a work-life balance, it should also be possible in reality. Not least because this also enhances health and well-being.

Mobile working

You can also agree a mobile working arrangement with your manager – for example working from home on fixed days. In accordance with statutory and collectively agreed regulations, you can organise your working hours freely in the period between 6 am and 10 pm.
