Are you still interested in a career at IWC although there are currently no vacancies that match your profile? Register yourself in our talent pool. This is where we collect information about candidates suitable for strategic areas and key positions in our company. If an opportunity comes up, we will contact you immediately.
What do I have to bring? Requirements?
Your professional qualifications are, of course, important. In addition, we pay attention to the following qualities among applicants:
- Passion for and identification with the IWC brand
- Affinity for and experience in an international environment
- Openness to a rapidly changing environment with constant change
- Affinity for digital technology
- Motivation to make a difference with innovations
- Customer-centric attitude and mindset
Job Search and Profile Match
For each vacancy, we first set a detailed candidate profile and formulate an advertisement with realistic requirements. If your qualifications and resume match our profile then you should apply to us.
Submitting the Application
We only accept applications with a resume and letter of motivation electronically through our jobs portal. Unfortunately, we cannot consider applications received by mail and they will be destroyed immediately.
Our Recruiting Partner and the relevant department check your documents and compare your resume with the job profile. The closer you match the profile, the more likely you will be invited to the interview process.
The first step is a telephone interview. During a 30-minute telephone conversation, we get to know each other better, check your current professional situation and talk about topics such as motivation, qualifications, and availability.
First Interview/Trial Day
After the telephone interview, we would like to invite you to a one-to-one meeting. During this, we test your specialist skills. For technical positions, we may have already carried out an initial trial day.
Second Interview/Trial Day
After a successful first interview, we will invite you for a second day. This will include a discussion with management-level colleagues and an introduction to the team. If no trial day has been carried out in the first round, this can be done in the second round, depending on the position.
If we decide to offer you the position after two successful interview days, you will receive a binding, written offer with all employment conditions.
With all candidates, we conduct a pre-employment screening during the final selection, where we check references and other documents. These reviews are carried out by Richemont or an associate and comply with all legal provisions.
Contract and Appointment
After successfully completing the pre-employment screening, we will provide you with the employment contract. Further information about induction and your first weeks at IWC can be found here.
What documents do I have to submit for my application?
So that we can examine your application thoroughly we need a complete application dossier including resume/CV, letter of motivation, employer references and diploma or degree certificate.
Why haven't I received a confirmation email?
The confirmation email may have ended up in your spam folder. You may have also mistyped your email address when you entered it.
How long will it be before I receive a response?
Normally we will contact you about two weeks after receiving your application documents, either by phone or email. Sometimes it may take a little longer due to vacations, updates to the job profile or a particularly high number of applications.
Can I still apply for another job if my application is rejected?
Of course! Just because you weren't suitable for one job doesn't mean that there aren't other opportunities for you at IWC. We recommend that you set up a job alert. You will then be informed when new positions are advertised.
Can I apply for a job if the listing is no longer online?
If our listing is no longer online, we have already been able to fill the vacancy and are no longer accepting applications.
Can I still apply even if no positions are suited to me?
We list all positions on our job portal. Therefore, it does not make sense in most cases to submit a speculative application. You can, however, register yourself on our talent pool. We will then get back to you as soon as there is a relevant position available in the company.
Can I also send my application via mail?
We cannot consider applications received by mail and they will be destroyed immediately. You can easily apply for our positions electronically on our job portal.
What happens with my personal data and documents?
Your data and documents are used by us solely for the application process. After three years all information is automatically erased. You can also erase your data yourself by logging in to the job portal.
Please note that there are local deviations regarding the application process. The above description applies specifically to the headquarters in Schaffhausen.
