Working at OKE
OKE Plus describes our philosophy of providing good working conditions and thus fulfilling our promise ‘Live well. Work well.’ Corresponding offers are available at all locations, depending on the size of the location and the needs of our colleagues on site.
In a survey every two years, our employees provide information about what is really needed. In addition to regular personal feedback meetings, we thus create additional, anonymous space for wishes, praise, criticism and personal challenges. With these insights, we continuously update our services, which cover four areas:
We ensure we provide good work facilities, from furniture to technology to workwear. New technological tools or the digitalisation of our processes facilitate and enrich our daily business. But for us, a workplace is even more: a place of encounter, inspiration and togetherness. Therefore, we create opportunities for dialogue and a sense of community depending on the local conditions, from the restaurant to green spaces to the meeting rooms or common areas.
We see the whole person. Modern, ergonomic workplaces are a matter of course for us, but we go much further. For comprehensive well-being, we offer nutrition and exercise options, a positive approach to taking breaks as well as medical and psychological counselling. Above all, however, we always seek personal dialogue in order to understand each other.
We all have other, important interests besides our jobs: family, friends, hobbies and our private lives. We want our employees to have enough time for all of these. To this end, we work as flexibly as the scope of work allows – we are also happy to work hybrid. Complementary site-specific services, such as medical examinations, physiotherapy, vehicles for pooling, or childcare, help to manage one’s own physical and mental resources.

The majority of our customers operate internationally, and we are at their disposal with our plants at home and abroad as well as with a network of service points.
As an employee of the OKE Group, you will therefore work in an international environment and also have the opportunity to work at different locations. Online or right on site!
Helping children together
OKE Kinderhilfe (Children’s Aid) collects and coordinates many small donations in order to provide meaningful help on a larger scale. OKE employees, in particular, make regular donations. The money flows unabated into our projects without any administrative costs. Helping people to help themselves is our goal: through a good education, we give children the chance to have a better life.
Frequently asked questions
The easiest way to do this is via our job portal www.jobs.oke.de. With the help of the application forms stored there, our processes are quick and easy. By the way, you will find jobs at all German sites there. Just have a look, apply and you’re on your way.
How long the selection process takes depends largely on the position to be filled. Basically, our goal is that the entire process from your application to the hopefully positive news takes no longer than an average of 4 weeks.
In order for us to assess how well your experience and knowledge fit the position, we welcome the following documents:
- a cover letter in which we can get to know you briefly and informally. Tell us something about what drives you, where you feel fully in your element: in short, what you are particularly good at;
- a CV that tells us something about what you’ve done up until now.
- If applicable, your most recent reference if you have not had much opportunity to gain work experience to date (for example, as a graduate or career starter).
You should submit a cover letter and CV in any case, this is the fastest way to move forward in the application process.
The most exciting moment is certainly that of the first personal meeting. This can initially take place by phone or Teams, or live and in person. A little stage fright is part of it, but don’t worry, it will be a good conversation:
- We will talk to each other in an open and relaxed manner. That’s important to us because, believe it or not, we’re a little tense too. After all, it is about possibly embarking on a journey together.
- Of course, we also have some specific questions up our sleeves. In doing so, we take a potential-oriented approach. This means we would like to exchange ideas about your strengths and what we can achieve together.
- Don’t overdress. We like people to dress appropriately for the occasion out of respect, but what is most important to us is that you feel comfortable.
Ask us! We’re sure you’re just as curious as we are. So don’t mince words. We don’t do that either.
In total, we plan to hold two interviews. In the first conversation, we would like to get to know you. If necessary, even together with colleagues from the department in which you would like to work. An encounter like this echoes, so we’ll reflect on our conversation afterwards, and I’m sure you will, too. If we have the impression that we are a good fit for each other – well, then we’ll move on to the second round. In the second interview, we would like to get to know you even more. For this purpose, you will answer a questionnaire and learn about our health concept. Because the mantra ‘Live well. Work well.’ is close to our hearts. You will then get to know your future team – after all, you need to fit in there as well. After this second stage we will make our decision. And you will also know whether you have found the right job or not. In the best case scenario, we will call you and make an appointment to discuss the contract.
We do not presume to know your questions. But we are happy to take the time to hear and answer them. Simply write to us directly at email@example.com.
