How to apply

The DSM job application process

So, if you’re wondering about the key factors to consider before applying; the application process itself; how we assess your application, and how you can expect us to respond to you…you’re in the right place.

Pre-application advice

Before you even complete an application, have a think about the following:

What drives me, what am I passionate about?

How can I contribute to DSM?

Will the DSM culture suit me?

Once you’ve read the job description thoroughly, feel free to take a look around this website (and indeed beyond – we’re on most major social media platforms) to learn more about us.

1. Applying for a vacancy

  • You can find all current DSM vacancies on our vacancies page.
  • To apply for a position simply register with the site (it takes just a few minutes) and send us your CV and a covering letter.
  • Even if we don’t have a vacancy that appeals right now, by registering with us you’ll receive notifications when vacancies arise that fit your profile. 

2. Responding to your application

Once your application is received we compare your experience and qualifications against the job description - and then contact you either to arrange an interview or to inform you that you have (on this occasion at least) been unsuccessful.

For more, check out our Recruiting team on LinkedIn.

3. The interview

If selected for an interview, you’ll be invited to an initial session via phone or video. We then usually invite our top five candidates for face-to-face interviews with the relevant manager and future colleagues to delve further into your experience, expectations and cultural fit. Be ready to discuss specific examples of how you think you could contribute to our business and wider purpose of creating brighter lives for all (we highly recommend you research our company and prepare a few questions).

4. Assessments and other checks

In some cases, you may be asked to take an assessment as a part of our interview process – to get a more in-depth understanding of what you’re about. We’ll also conduct standard background and reference checks.

5. Interview results

Our recruitment team will contact you post-interview with the outcome. In some cases, the process can take longer, but we always follow-up on interviews with our candidates.

6. Onboarding

If you’re successful we ask you to sign a contract of employment and then begin the onboarding process with the hiring manager to ensure that you’re ready to hit the ground running with your new career at DSM. Congratulations!
