Application FAQ

How does the application process work?

You can apply directly via the ÖBB job portal for our vacancies. Paint a vivid picture of yourself and your qualifications and attach the following documents to your application:

  1. Cover letter
  2. CV
  3. Your most important work and education qualifications

After successfully applying online in the job portal, you will receive a confirmation email so that you can be certain that your application has reached us and is being processed. We will check your document and compare your qualifications with the job descriptions of particular positions. If we find your qualifications interesting and they match the requirements of a particular position, we will get in touch with you about how we will proceed. For selected positions, for example our trainee programmes, an assessment centre will follow after the initial meeting, in which you can put your skills and expertise to the test through various every-day working life exercises. For professions requiring special requisites, for example working with the tracks, aptitude tests will also be carried out after the first interview.

How do I send my application to ÖBB?

Your online application via the ÖBB job portal has many advantages. You simply fill out the structured online form and insert your CV, cover letter and qualifications. By doing it this way, you will be able to view your application at any time. If you can not apply online via the ÖBB job portal, you can also send your documents via post or email to the address of the given contact person.

Which positions can I find in the online job portal?

In the ÖBB job portal you can find all job vacancies within the ÖBB group (only in German).
