What are your criteria for recruitment?

Specific requirements are found in the job advertisement. Decisions are based on the candidate's job-related skills, experience, competencies and potential. It’s important to us, that you suit ABB and our corporate culture.

How long does it take to complete the online application process?

It takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete the application process, though this can also depend on Internet speeds and the browser you use. The registration and first application for a job may take a bit longer but, after the first time, most of your details will be already stored and used for additional applications, except the unique cover letter and any additional questions that may be required for the screening and evaluation process, which may be different each time.
