Evonik Industries is an international industrial group with business activities in over 100 countries throughout the world. We focus on specialty chemicals. Evonik is about products and solutions that break the mold and grab people’s imagination.
We offer employees a truly inspiring environment with work that motivates and challenges. Evonik attracts talented individuals. And because we offer long-term career prospects, they readily stay with us. We expect a high-performance mindset. Attaching a premium to sharing knowledge and mutual learning, we encourage people to work in concert - often in interdisciplinary teams. We expect our employees to use the independence we grant them to further Evonik’s interests and success. Performance-linked pay, personal development and ongoing specialist training all come with the job. We owe much of our international success to the expertise and commitment of our workforce, so we create the conditions for people to turn their work into the career of their dreams.
Vocational training is part of our commitment to the future. We provide training in a wide range of occupations, giving numerous young people a flying start to their career. Because we see initial training as part of our social responsibility, our training levels are mostly above the industry average in Germany. We deliberately train in excess of our own needs because we believe vocational training means richer pickings for everyone. Our training facilities all boast up-to-date technology and we use the latest training methods, including e-learning. Some trainees even get to go abroad: In one instance, trainees from Germany helped install a pilot pump facility in Shanghai, China.
