Are you up for the challenge?
Here is a clear, detailed explanation of our hiring process.
Found an interesting role on our job board? Candidates have greater success when their experience strongly matches our job requirements, so make sure the skills and achievements on your CV and cover letter are aligned with the job description.
You may also contact our recruiting manager during the application period to hear more about the tasks and responsibilities and what we can offer for you. This is also an opportunity for the hiring manager to get to know more about you. Please make sure you are committed to the call schedule as written in the job postings.
The hiring manager reviews all applications.
In case we find a potential match, we will schedule a call, a video interview or a face-to-face conversation – taking into account the number of suitable applicants – to learn more about your skills and experience. The hiring manager is always represented in all interviews.
While we would like to be able to connect with every applicant, we regret that the volume of applications we receive on a global scale does not always allow us to personally contact everyone who applies.
Our competencies-based interviewing process is intended to help us minimize unconscious bias while also making sure that we hire people who will thrive in our environment and culture. Steps will vary by team but these typically include: a hiring manager interview, aptitude testing (combining an ability test, a self-assessed personality test, and questionnaires and interviews mapping your motivation, commitment and development potential) and possibly a second interview with other stakeholders.
During the interview we will ask you to describe the type of projects you have previously worked on, the scale of those projects, what level of collaboration was involved as well as the outcome. We focus on how instead of what. And for sure, we always ask: Why do you want to work for Neste?
If you're selected, and the fit and timing are right on your end as well, our HR experts will walk you through the proposed details of the offer. With your verbal acceptance, our HR Expert will route the official written offer through our system, and you will be able to review it. Please note that your hiring manager does not execute the offer process, so you'll need to stay in close contact with your HR Expert during this period.
Once you've signed your offer, on behalf of our 5,500 colleagues around the world, we will then welcome you to Neste. The onboarding process will give you the best possible start at Neste by ensuring that you have a clear understanding of your role and responsibilities and the part you play in the wider organization. Alongside customized and role specific onboarding, the Global Induction program will also provide you the information you will need to succeed with us.
