BMW Group Careers frequently asked questions three colleagues converse


We have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions about applying to the BMW Group.

For further questions, please address our careers team contact persons. Our business hours are Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You can contact us via telephone +49 (0)89 382 17001 or send us an email.

If you don’t yet have a contact name, we recommend that you contact the BMW Group’s recruitment team. You should address your letter “Dear Sir/Madam”.

If you are interested in more than one job, you can submit several applications in parallel in the Job Assistant.

Responding promptly to applications is a priority for the BMW Group recruitment team. We will notify you as soon as your application has been reviewed. However, due to the large number of positions and applications, an initial response may take up to 14 days.

Don’t worry if you forget your access data. Just send an email to the recruitment hotline or call +49 (0)89 382 17001.

This is not an automatic status – so it means that your application has been successfully received and is currently being reviewed.

If you are interested in a position at one of our international locations, you can find more information, including contact details, using the interactive location map.

For a technical pre-study internship, you need the examination regulations of your preferred course of study. For all other internships, you need to be a registered student or between your Bachelor’s and Master’s degree.

To complete an internship with the BMW Group, we should receive your application four months before you wish to start.

It depends whether you have already selected a topic or theme for your thesis – in which case, you can propose your topic to the BMW Group through a speculative application. If you haven’t decided on a topic, you can find interesting topics at our locations and in our divisions in the online job market.

For the protection of employees, the law governing part-time employment and fixed-term employment contracts stipulates that a fixed-term employment contract may only be fulfilled one time in the same company. Temporary posts include voluntary internships, positions as working students and fixed-term employment. You may therefore only fulfil each of these contracts one time at the BMW Group.

The most important factor in your application is the overall impression. This includes your skills, knowledge and character, as well as the grades you achieved at school and college. These are not the only decisive factor, but they should not be neglected. However, the final decision on your application will ultimately depend on an ideal mix of all these aspects.

It depends on the job you are applying for. Special requirements are always indicated in the job posting. However, all BMW Group apprenticeships require a basic school-leaving qualification.

The BMW Group only accepts online applications. You can apply through the Job Market or Job Assistant in our application system.
