Your success factor ‒ our expertise
Our cooperation with the Deutsche Bahn
Our students have worked for the Deutsche Bahn as train platform assistants. Their mission: helping keep the trains on schedule. The students stood at the train doors helping travellers get on and off the trains quickly and answering passengers’ questions. See for yourself!
Jobs in the mobility sector are really popular among our students. The proportion of job applicants for these jobs is far above average.
I work as a driver for Berlin’s first digital Ride Sharing Service. I get to drive brand new Mercedes-Benz Vitos and I can afford to buy more things in my leisure time. Next year the vehicle fleet will switch to electromobility, which I am especially looking forward to.
Our customer is a start-up that provides e-scooters for rental. They stand for alternative mobility concepts that improve mobility within a city while reducing traffic.
Before our customer expands within a city, they make sure that the service will be an asset to residents while staying in close contact with the local authorities.
Request received from a business planning its market entry in Germany with e-scooter rental. The customer needs 250 workers for the initial phase.
Pitch for the customer in our Berlin office. Because this will be a market entry, detailed preliminary planning is necessary. Thanks to our 22 locations, we are able to have meetings in person and even hold meetings on short notice.
The customer informs us of the profile of requirements for the student workers they are looking for. Around 60% of these students will need a German class B driving license because they will be driving a van. They must also speak either fluent German or English and want to be on the go all day.
We start recruitment by forming a scooter recruiting team and putting up the job announcement. We begin the first marketing operations in order to quickly fill the open positions. The jobs are very popular among our students. We cooperate to ensure the students have optimal working conditions. The working hours are kept flexible, the locations are near the universities and the pay is attractive. We initially limit the personnel search to five cities: Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Cologne and Munich; 50 workers are needed in each city.
There is a successive expansion of the e-scooter rental to Essen, Dortmund, Dusseldorf, Stuttgart and Hanover. The entire coordination is run by our central Single Order Desk, which also takes on the coordination with our branches. We receive a large number of applications. We organise many rounds of applications with the students and get to know each one personally. Only three weeks go by before the first workers are hired. The first students complete an assessment centre. The challenge: a short interview, parking a van in a tight parking space as well as pulling out of it, a drill on loading and unloading the scooters from the van, including the correct load securing.
E-scooter law goes into effect: publication of the electric mini vehicles regulation in the Federal Law Gazette.
Since the job posting went up, we have received 2,118 job applications. Because of the press, relevance of the topic as well as the good contract conditions, we were able to fill 504 job openings by 24 July.
