HighPots is looking for the best talents

And the former best talents who have already made the most of themselves.

We are growing, which means we are constantly on the lookout for new colleagues who are very capable, who want to make a difference – and who can expect a lot from us.

Important information for applicants

The job overview shows you all the positions available at HighPots GmbH, including those at our international subsidiaries.
You can easily and quickly find the position that best suits you. If you like our job description, please send us your application. Even if we do not have a subsidiary at your place of residence. For some roles, we offer location-independent working.

An application is a serious matter – for both sides

Our employees are our most important resource. We take every application very seriously. Every application is important to us. We take a lot of time to review each application. Please take your time for the preparation of your application, too.

The job descriptions have a link to our online application form. Please fill out this form and attach a complete set of your application documents.

Our online form will simplify the process for you and for us. We therefore ask you to apply directly via our online portal.
You can also send your application by e-mail (hr@highpots.de) or by post. Please enclose all your documents and send your application to the following address:

HighPots GmbH

We always evaluate applications across departments for a large number of positions. If you are applying specifically for more than one position, please fill out ONE application form and let us know your interest in the additional position(s) with your cover letter.

We will confirm the receipt of your application documents from our online portal by sending you an email. Your application will be evaluated as quickly as possible by our HR specialists and the relevant specialized department.

If your application impresses us, we will contact you to arrange an interview by phone. This conversation will last about half an hour: we will want to find out more about your reasons for applying, and also give you the opportunity to ask questions. If both you and we view this phone interview positively, we will invite you to an on-site Assessement Center and/or an interview that takes about two hours. That will be led by a colleague from the HR department and one from the relevant specialized department.

If we are further impressed by your technical and interpersonal skills in this interview, we will invite you to a second interview. This one usually includes the person who would be your immediate supervisor. We will then decide whether to offer you a position at HighPots, and inform you promptly.

How should your application be, what should your application say?

We are looking for people with certain characteristics. HighPots employees are known for creativity, determination, the ability to put theory into practice and high quality. Our employees are passionate about their work.

Show us passion, ability and energy.

Use your application to show us your individual profile.
We attach great importance to the letter that describes your motivation for applying to HighPots. Your application should also contain a curriculum vitae, copies of certificates (grammar school, intermediate or final examination, degree, doctorate) as well as references from internships or previous activities.

The letter

Tell us why you are applying for the job. It is an important point for us to see that you have already been intensively involved with our company and the vacancy. Stand out from the crowd and use your own words instead of the terms in the job advertisement.

The curriculum vitae

Make sure you have a clear and structured curriculum vitae. Don’t leave any gaps in your history or the information you provide and mention your commitment to extracurricular activities.

The first interview via phone

If your application has made a positive impression on us, we will invite you to make a brief initial telephone call. The call takes between 15 and 30 minutes.
We would like to know why you applied to HighPots. We would also like to give you the opportunity to ask questions. Your interviewer is a member of our personnel department. If this impression is also positive, we will invite you to an Assessment Center.

The Assessement Center

The Assessment Center depends on the position at HighPots.
It usually consists of the following modules:

  • Culture independent intelligence test (crystalline intelligence, fluid intelligence)
  • concentration test
  • language test
  • Case Study
  • Final conversation

The Assessement Center takes about 2 to 2.5 hours.

Short note on the case study
Many applicants feel nervous about the case study. There is no reason for this. In the case study, you only show how you would structure extensive information.
The case study can have an unknown origin. You will receive a written task description and will have about 15 minutes to write an answer. You then present your results on a flipchart. Here, a structured approach and a pronounced enthusiasm for the work of a consultant are essential. In addition to your professional qualifications, we put great emphasis on your personality.

Contract

If your test results were good, you will receive a contract of employment from us. Often the conditions are also determined during a joint interview. The contract is then signed together.

Questions about a job offer

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Requests from interested candidates are always welcome.

Simplified application process for students

HighPots are also interested in working together with students.
Please send us you application via our online portal.

If we are impressed by your application from our online portal, we will invite you to an on-site or phone interview. In this talk we will want to get to know you better as an individual and to gain an impression of your specialized skills. We will make our decision shortly thereafter – applicants generally hear from us within two weeks of the interview.
