What we offer

Community, competence, and culture – there are many great reasons to start your career at Covestro. We are especially proud of the following three:

Community – interns sharing experiences

It is practically a tradition that all the interns go to lunch together at Kasino (the works restaurant) at Chempark Leverkusen every Tuesday. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, there has been a substitute meetup on MS Teams – voluntary, of course! As such, all interns at our German sites have the opportunity to get to know each other and share their experiences.

Competence – expert voices

Whether engineering or tech talk: in numerous podcasts and episodes, colleagues such as our Director of Data Science and the Unit Head of Global Process and Equipment Engineering offer insights into career paths and innovation-related topics.





Culture – a working environment of recognized fairness

Handelsblatt and Institut für Beschäftigung und Employability have once again named us a fair company. This means, among other things, that we fulfill the expectations and values of entry-level candidates and young professionals such as interns and trainees in a special way.

We attach particular importance to exciting entry opportunities and a spirit of collaboration and fairness, which we bring to the forefront with attractive working conditions and areas of focus:

  • Work–life Balance
  • Diversity and equal opportunities
  • Sustainability and corporate social responsibility
  • Leadership, work organization, and corporate culture
  • Career paths, compensation, and employee development
