My mantra is that the early bird catches the worm! I usually get to my computer pretty early but can’t start working until I’ve had my first two coffees. My job in Offenburg is to fill positions that reflect the diversity of our brand portfolio. I love being in contact with so many different people and showing them how varied and broad Burda is and just how many employment opportunities we can offer.
Employer branding is a varied and creative field – just like Burda itself. We have an umbrella strategy for our strong media brands that incorporates Burda’s “in good company” claim. I’m based in Offenburg and really appreciate the considerable freedom we are given to design and implement measures. Despite working from home and having team members all over the place, we stick together and take a hands-on approach to recruiting. Quite simply, it’s fun to be here.
I am passionate about understanding people, getting to know them, and helping them find the right job – and that’s exactly what I do. I help the vibrant and diverse BurdaVerlag brands to find professionals who will help them to grow. From my base in Munich, I get to work with teams at our major sites throughout Germany – Offenburg, Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. Our days are exciting, and filled with entrepreneurial spirit, responsibility and networking.
I have been with HR in Munich since 2014 and like to start my day with a cappuccino from the Burda Bar. As a Recruiting Consultant, I am always on the lookout for the best specialists and managers for my areas of responsibility. Interviews and career events are as much a part of my daily routine as networking with colleagues and exchanging ideas on recruiting trends. Burda is very open to new things. I particularly appreciate the diversity and the collegial interaction.
First an intern, then a working student, then a permanent employee – clearly, I wanted to stay with Burda! I was a valued team member from the outset and learned a great deal. Now, as a recruiter, I take immense pleasure in preparing students to enjoy the same positive start to their careers. If you’re a student with an interest in fashion, our paths are sure to cross. Or maybe you prefer tax and data protection? Whatever your passion, I look forward to hearing from you!
Burda is vibrant and Burda is diverse. Every day, I provide our various profit centres with tailored advice on IT recruiting. What processes do we need and who will be the right fit? What job title should we use and what qualities should the perfect candidate have? These are the questions I try to answer in our Munich office or working from home after a coffee on my balcony. And then I start searching for candidates. In the evening I play guitar or do some programming of my own.
I’m based in Munich and am always looking for professionals in the Marketing & Sales segment. Having worked in Marketing & Sales myself, I know what applicants need and love matching them with suitable vacancies. I’m so happy that I can bring my dog Lilli into the office. Arabellapark is a great place to take her for a lunchtime walk, and I get to enjoy plenty of fresh air throughout my varied workday.
I work in Offenburg, managing vacancies for young professionals. Whether you’re applying for an apprenticeship in electronics engineering or an internship in marketing to provide your first professional experience, the main thing I look for is motivation. What makes the perfect workday? Finding the right person for a job and chatting with my colleagues, ideally over lunch in the cafeteria.
I look after numerous media and digital brands at the Munich site and am always looking for talents who want to kickstart their career with us. Burda’s versatility and ability to evolve are plain to see in the recruiting process too, and there are always exciting new positions to fill. I particularly value our open corporate culture, trust-based flexible working hours and collegial atmosphere.
For me, “in good company” means leading a wonderful team whose members support one another and enjoy overcoming all the challenges presented by our work. We fill over 1,000 vacancies every year, ensure that Burda makes a great impression on potential employees and deal with recruiting matters for almost all Burda brands. Just like Burda, our work is diverse, creative and people-focused. We are all about innovation, collaboration and enterprise and are looking for people who will fit in with our culture. Join us!
I look after our core functions – for example in finance, strategy and legal – as well as special projects. I work out of Offenburg with colleagues located around Germany and find myself constantly inspired by the variety of tasks required – each project is different. I really enjoy talking with professionals and students. I also support our networking activities, such as university events, and am active on Xing and LinkedIn.
Together with my wonderful colleagues, I am responsible for recruiting experienced professionals at our Munich office. I love meeting talented people and awakening their enthusiasm for Burda. I care deeply about matching the right people with the right vacancies and act as a sparring partner for my specialist departments. When I want a change from my day-to-day work, I visit the alternating exhibitions in our office space or the in-house art library.
Involved in exciting employer branding projects since day one and part of a great team! As Content Manager, I create exciting stories so everybody is able to experience Burda with all its colors. "Burda, in good company.” is our message, which thrives with each employee, each event, each learning and with every new friendship. Whether you check our careers page, our social media, print or meet us on events – you will quickly understand, that it’s not just a job and we are more than colleagues. How to recognize me? I'm always taking pictures, filming and asking questions.
Recruiting isn’t just a “job” to me – I care about it deeply. My day-to-day work is as varied and exciting as the roles we have to offer. My tip for candidates is to apply for jobs even if you don’t fulfil the criteria 100%. As a team, we value home working and the time we get to spend together in Offenburg, perhaps over a coffee in the Burda Bistro or lunch in the company restaurant.
Yesterday I organised a student excursion, today I’m completing a new podcast episode, and tomorrow I’m going to the careers fair. And all the while I’m gathering new ideas for HR marketing measures. This variety is what makes working here so exciting.
Want to come to the next event? Then feel free to get in touch. I’m based at the Munich location and at weekends you’ll often find me at my home by (or out on) Lake Constance.
I really enjoy overseeing the recruitment process, from advertising a vacancy to choosing a candidate. I’m constantly meeting new people and getting to know our departments a little better. Flexible working allows me to supervise locations throughout Germany from my base in Offenburg. Our team is like Burda itself: creative, diverse and innovative, so I always look forward to coming to work. Once I finish in the evening, I like to go for a run to recharge my batteries for the following day.
My team gives me the opportunity to turn my passion for creative projects into a career. For me, “in good company” means spending my workdays behind a camera – just like my free time. As a content producer in Munich, I bring our employer branding to life through short films, photography and graphics. If you want a first impression of your new employer, then check out our YouTube channel.
I work in HR marketing, looking after our TalentNetwork and organising a range of trade fairs and events. I really enjoy having regular contact with students, universities and colleagues from other departments. My wide-ranging remit allow me to gain lots of fascinating insights into Burda’s vibrant brands. I particularly appreciate the great atmosphere and how well we all get along, whether we’re in a virtual meeting or the Munich office.
The Burda Group is diverse, colorful and offers numerous exciting jobs within various profit centers and locations. I support internal colleagues who are looking for a new challenge within Burda, to find a suitable position and to develop further. I am pleased to accompany employees on their next internal career step and, as a person of trust, to show them options for an internal change.
I joined Burda in Munich back in 2005 and am still experiencing new things all the time. The company’s versatility and innovative strength are truly impressive. I am given the freedom to focus my recruiting work as I wish and to pursue my personal development. At the moment, I am responsible for the entire trainee selection process and support candidates as they attend the Assessment Center, where authenticity and variety prove particularly valuable.
