First and foremost, your CV is the most important document. It provides us with a good overview of your professional background and your previous experience. Your cover letter is also a key component of your application package; it lets you tell us more about who you are, why you are applying for a position with us, and how you see yourself contributing to rpc's continued success. We are also happy to see any relevant references, such as diplomas and certificates, to help us complete our picture of you. You are also welcome to submit these documents at a later time, e.g. by bringing them with you to the first interview.
It goes without saying that for every position, it is important that you, the applicant, possesses the relevant experience and skills necessary to be successful in your new role. But it's also important to us that you come with the right attitude for the position. As the saying goes, "hire for attitude, train for skill." We are looking for individuals who want to generate results as part of a team, who are willing to shoulder responsibility, who enjoy learning and adding to their personal skills, and who want to play an active role in shaping the future of the company. As a consulting company and a service provider, one thing that is very important to us is the famous extra mile that our employees are ready to go to ensure their clients' success. If this description matches who you are, we look forward to hearing from you.
You will receive confirmation of receipt as soon as we receive your application package. From that point onward, we will make every effort possible to review your application as quickly and thoroughly as possible. In general, it takes between 2 and 15 days until you can expect to receive initial feedback from us.
During the different phases of the application process, you will get to know as many individuals as possible with whom you will be working in the future. That will include your direct supervisor, one of your future colleagues, and a member of the HR team. Our management board also makes it a priority to personally meet every shortlisted candidate.
rpc is a growing company and new vacancies are continually opening up. For that reason, we look forward to receiving application documents from you even if they are not for a specific position. We will provide you with feedback about whether we see any current options for joining rpc – and, if so, within which time frame – as quickly as possible."
We generally recruit local employees for foreign projects. However, as an international company, opportunities to be part of a project with an international component are always arising. If you are interested in a position abroad, we recommend taking a look at the career positions listed for each respective rpc location. Should you not see any positions that would be relevant for you, you are also welcome to send us a general application and specify your preferred location in your cover letter.
Please contact our HR team if you have questions about a positing, if you would like to know more about a position, or if questions come up for you during the application process. The contact information can be found here."
We are very happy to know that several of our open positions are of interest to you, especially because that's the same way we see our own integrated approach: ideally, we want to have employees who would like to become active in more than just one of our divisions. In such a case, there is no need to send several applications. Simply let us know in which positions you are interested in your application letter. When looking at your profile, we will always keep other vacancies in mind that could be a good match for you. We will also provide you with an open response about the options we see so that you'll always know exactly where the journey with rpc could take you.
At rpc, there's no standardized assessment center. We will hold an open discussion with you at eye level; it is possible, though, that the interview will touch on specific issues related to the specific role. But more importantly, we want to get to know you in the interview: first, to learn more about your professional skills; and second, in order to get an accurate picture of what is important to you as an individual when it comes to your professional life. Contrary to all the tips in advice books that tell candidates to act and answer a certain way in interviews, our opinion is that the more authentic and genuine an interview is, the more everyone involved will get out of it. In that respect, it is helpful to take some time for yourself and to think about what is important to you prior to interviewing with us. There is no need to specifically prepare for the interview in terms of subject-specific or technical knowledge.
Absolutely. rpc is exceptionally international and we place great value on international collaboration within the framework of internal exchange and an exchange of knowledge for projects. In addition, we also have international projects with positions abroad.
We are happy to welcome each and every new member of the team and do our best to make starting with us as comfortable as possible. As part of those efforts, our internal rpc Academy will put together a training program that you will attend during your first days with us. Your team will also make sure to involve you in activities that could be relevant for you as quickly as possible. At the same time, it is also possible that you will be accompanying colleagues to client appointments and taking on your own initial responsibilities very quickly. We think there's no better way to ensure a successful start than jumping right into your project. A team of colleagues will be available to help and give advice every step of the way.
