Help Transform The Future Of Food Green

That feeling when you find the right match

While experience is important, it doesn't matter where you come from - we're simply looking for candidates who are accountable, curious, collaborative, open-minded, and driven to improve themselves and the world, we're not necessarily looking for people who 'fit the mould.'

In short, the point of the hiring process is to ensure we're the right fit for each other. The stages of recruitment may differ depending on the role you're applying for - some positions will also include reference checks and personality assessments - the diagram below will give you an idea of what to expect.

Meet Paul Sawatee

“It is a huge opportunity to ask the right questions to create a good impression during the interview and show how you have done some research, demonstrate how well you would fit, how engage and genuine interest in the job. The goal of questioning is to gather information to help you evaluate and determine the job is a good match for you. Because interviewing is a two-way communication.”

Meet Kim Huijs

"Feel at home when you are connecting with Marel. It’s always good to have a clear view about the organisation, department and your position within a new company. However, doing what you love and getting energy from what you're doing, is more important. Be yourself so we can meet the real you. Who you are as a person is more important than anything else!"

Meet Pernille Bregenhøj

“We know that an interview can make most people feel nervous and tense, but for us the goal is to make you feel comfortable and safe. A recruitment process is not about you being flawless, it is much more about getting to know each other and very much about us leaving you with a good feeling of us and Marel. Relax and be yourself - we just really want to get to know you and feel your passion."

Meet Dayane Gomes da Silva Santos

"When you join an interview, it is important for us to get to know you better, besides the information on your CV. Start from the basics about yourself: who you are, what is your background, what experiences do you have, which languages do you speak, etc. If you want to be more confident introducing yourself, you can record and then watch to see what you can improve or even talk in front of a mirror. It is important to highlight to be yourself, be respectful, kind and to dress professionally."
