How to create a candidate profile.
In order to create a candidate profile you need to register on our recruiting system. Therefore we would like you to read the privacy statement first so that you know how the BMW Group handles your personal data. Once you accept the conditions, you will be able to register. As a new user you need to register by choosing a username, creating a password and entering your email address. You can also sign in with your email account (the provider is displayed on the registration page).
You can submit your applicant information in three different ways. The fastest way to upload your data is by connecting to your LinkedIn profile or by uploading your CV. By selecting the first option, you will be directed to the login page of LinkedIn. With the second option you just need to upload your CV. The system will take the relevant information from the profile and will use it to automatically fill out parts of the online submission. Please review the information that has been automatically entered for you and make any relevant changes in the next steps. If you do not upload a profile or a resume, you will need to fill out the online submission manually. Your data will be stored for a duration of your choice. How we delete data is explained in detail in the privacy statement. You can pause the application at any time and add or update data. Before submitting your application you will be shown an overview of your personal and professional information that you are always able to amend.
Data protection is extremely important to us, and to ensure this, we give you complete control over which BMW Group locations or legal entities can view your candidate profile. This is managed in the preferences section during the application process by specifying the appropriate location(s) and organization(s). In order to set your preferences, select the BMW Group location(s) at which you want your candidate profile to be visible. By adding your selection to the list, recruiters in the specific country (or countries) will be able to see your candidate profile and can then consider you for positions which fit your criteria. If you also wish to limit your profile visibility to a certain legal entity, you can do so by specifying this in the third preferences page. Please note: selecting a legal entity can be skipped if you want your profile to be visible to all entities within the selected country (or countries).
At this page in the online recruiting system you will find a summary of all the applications you have submitted and your current submission status. By clicking on “View” you can call up the summary of your application at any time and continue working on it. You can manage your user profile under “My Account Options”: here you can change your password or deactivate and delete your account.
Practical tips for your online application.
You can enter the online application system by clicking on the ‘Apply’ button on our career page. Please describe your qualifications and skills accurately, honestly and in as much detail as possible. Please ensure that you upload all the relevant documents. The following documents should always be included:
- Cover letter
- CV / Resume containing any relevant information about qualifications
- Any relevant information to the job you are applying to (e.g. certificates, portfolio, and performance records etc.)
You may upload up to 5 files of 10 MB each.
Please do not forget to submit your application when you have finished creating your profile. We wish you every success with your application.
If you can’t find a suitable position, you can send a speculative application by creating a candidate profile in our system. Enter the system directly by clicking the “Create profile” button (which also appears when your search returns no results).
We then will be able to view your candidate profile. If we match your profile to a suitable role, we will notify you regarding further steps in the application process. However, we encourage you to regularly review our job vacancies to discover new opportunities that may be of interest to you.
Direct application: Once you have submitted a direct application for a vacancy on our careers page, our team will review your CV to check that your experience and skills match the job requirements. If they do, you will be invited to take part in a telephone interview. If you pass these first two stages, your CV will be sent to the recruitment manager.
Once the recruitment manager has reviewed your CV, you will be invited to an assessment centre, where you will have the chance to meet our team in person, introduce yourself and demonstrate your skills and experience.
Unsolicited application: Sending us your CV is a good way to ensure that you are considered for current or future vacancies. Your application will be kept in our talent pool, which our team checks regularly for candidates whose experience and skills we can match to the positions we have available. If you are suitable for one of these positions, you will be invited to take part in a telephone interview.
After the telephone interview, your CV will be sent to the recruitment manager. You will then be invited to an assessment centre, where you will have the chance to meet our team in person, introduce yourself and demonstrate your skills and experience.
If it turns out that you are not the right candidate for an open position, your personal profile will remain in our talent pool for future positions. Our team is constantly looking for candidates so that you can combine your experience and skills with our open positions. We wish you all the success with your application and we thank you for your interest in working for BMW Group.
A telephone interview may be the first step towards a selection day or face-to-face interview. The applicant will receive a phone call from the HR department or the hiring department. The conversation focuses on the candidate's professional background, their specialist knowledge and suitability for the job in question. The telephone call also provides the chance for any additional questions on either side to be answered.
