Working for Verbio

Working for Climate

WE ARE VERBIO

The future is green. At VERBIO we develop and manufacture innovative biofuels for passenger and heavy goods vehicles, and in doing so we reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90 percent. We also use raw and waste materials from agriculture to manufacture animal feed, fertiliser and high-value raw materials for use in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and foodstuff industries.

We have developed our processes and plants ourselves. This means that we are technology leaders in the European biofuels market, and we are on an international growth path in Asia and North America. We are actively driving forward climate protection, and we are shaping tomorrow’s mobility.

We employ around 1,000 people in Germany, Poland, Hungary, India, the USA and Canada. With our lean structures and flat hierarchies, we react quickly and flexibly to changes in framework conditions. At VERBIO, decisions are made and implemented rapidly and efficiently.

VERBIO has been awarded the Axia Best Managed Companies Award 2021 by Deloitte, Credit Suisse, the WirtschaftsWoche magazine and the BDI. This award is an international seal of approval for exemplary, innovative, successful and well-managed medium-sized businesses.

VALUES AND CORPORATE CULTURE

The work we perform as a team, as well as our work with external business partners, is based on compliance and corporate governance guidelines. In addition, our corporate culture is built on the following basic principles – so that you know where you stand.

COMPETENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY

We achieve great things with uncompromising expertise. Our innovation capabilities and our technology leadership are based on our technical expertise and the abilities of our employees.

FLEXIBILITY

Flexibility is the key to growth and to making further progression. We do not rest on the successes of the past; instead we meet current and future challenges with creativity, initiative and innovation. We react quickly to changes in market conditions.

RESPONSIBILITY AND SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

We bear a responsibility for the planet and for future generations. Our awareness of this drives us to develop sustainable and practical solutions for climate protection. We are careful with natural resources, and we use them efficiently. We accept responsibility for our employees and take an active role in shaping their social environment both in and outside the Company.

TEAM SPIRIT

We work as equals, take responsibility for one another and support each other as colleagues. We work in the knowledge that we achieve more as a team. This applies from the Group’s Management Board through to apprenticeship level, and across all national boundaries.

WORKING FOR CLIMATE.
HERE’S HOW.

We need more clean energy, and VERBIO is supplying it, in a renewable, sustainable and climate-friendly way. We take raw and waste materials generated by local agriculture and convert them into high-value energy and valuable by-products. The innovative technologies that we have developed internally ensure particularly energy- and CO2-efficient production processes. Our ambitions for technology leadership, sustainability, climate protection and international growth need technical expertise, specialists, team spirit and engagement. Here at VERBIO, teams of engineers, chemists, technicians, chemical plant operators, economists and logistics experts work hand in hand, across national boundaries and across continents.

This is your opportunity to help with climate protection! Join us in shaping the green mobility of the future! We need your ideas, your motivation and your engagement. We are recruiting; in particular, we have vacancies for technical staff, e.g. operating engineers, process engineers and chemical plant operators.

Interested? Come and get to know our team!

PROCESS ENGINEER (M/F/D)

“Continuous optimisation of the production plant during ongoing operations”

Our plants are based on internally-generated technologies and processes. This is the difference between VERBIO and its competitors. It is the process engineer’s job to drive these developments even further. In collaboration with the teams that are responsible for daily operations and for technical maintenance and plant management, the process engineer has the ongoing task of examining potential changes to optimise production, looking for potential new products that could be gained from the raw materials used, and investigating ways of increasing the efficiency of the plant and equipment. Wherever possible this has to be done while maintaining the smooth operation of the plant, in order to minimise plant downtimes and production losses.

OPERATING ENGINEER (M/F/D)

Ensuring that the plant operates smoothly”

Operating engineers are responsible for ensuring that the plant operates smoothly in accordance with the defined processes and for the successful implementation of projects in close cooperation with other specialist departments including scheduling, laboratory and production through to research and development and management. Operating engineers coordinate the necessary raw materials, consumables and supplies and supervise the technical operation of the plant. In addition, they create suggestions for process and technology optimisation measures to increase efficiency and improve the stability of the plant’s performance.

PLANT OPERATOR/CHEMICAL PLANT OPERATOR (M/F/D)

“Information enables coordination”

Being a plant operator means actively supervising the process and managing the plant. Ongoing control over the defined parameters is necessary to ensure the stability of the production process. When variances occur the plant operator needs to react quickly and coordinate the personnel needed to implement changes in the work processes. Tasks include performing regular inspection rounds throughout the plant, as well as taking samples from the production process and computer-based supervision using the displays in the control room.

YOUR IMPORTANT QUESTIONS ANSWERED

We work for climate protection, for tomorrow’s green mobility. To do this we develop new technologies and implement them on an industrial scale. Our objective is to achieve and defend the status of technology leader in the renewable energies sector at the international level. At the same time, we focus on commercial stability and profitable growth. We offer our employees secure jobs in an international environment, with flat hierarchies and plenty of space to help shape the future. Our products, plants and technologies are sustainable and forward-looking.

VERBIO places an emphasis on flat hierarchies with short decision-making chains. This ensures that we maintain our competitive lead and our flexibility in the market. Our team consists of almost 1,000 employees worldwide, and our employees work successfully across national borders on a daily basis. Accordingly, we are looking for new colleagues who welcome challenges, who are prepared to take new approaches, who want to contribute new ideas, who will conscientiously and reliably support the team, and who will contribute their technical knowledge to the team effort with a sharing mentality and also work independently and on a responsible basis in their technical area.

Before you join, the responsible department will create a familiarisation plan that will include various stations. On their first working day the personnel department provides all new employees with an introduction to the most important corporate and work-safety information. Then you will be introduced to your technical department. In your first weeks with the Company, based on the familiarisation plan, you will become familiar with the team and the foundations of the work that you will subsequently perform independently.

We offer you a responsible and challenging range of tasks with interesting perspectives for future development.

Our remuneration system includes an annual share of the success of the business in the form of a variable bonus. In annual employee meetings you will have the opportunity to hold discussions with your supervisor concerning the feedback provided to you. We provide support for your professional and personal development in the form of trainings and seminar attendance, as well as study programmes accompanying your work. An employees’ pension arrangement is provided after one year of employment; you are entitled to make additional voluntary contributions to this scheme. VERBIO places a high value on the compatibility of work and family, and therefore we subsidise your child’s nursery school place and offer flexible parental working arrangements.

We keep you fit with health days and sports events and subsidise membership in professional fitness clubs in Germany, such as Urban Sports.

Where available, you will be provided with discount arrangements for your daily journey to work by bus, train or public transport. At all our German locations we offer bicycle leasing under a “Job-bike” scheme. The bicycle of your choice will be leased for you by VERBIO, and it can be used for the journey to work as well as in your free time. This scheme provides an attractive price advantage compared to a private purchase arrangement.

We support our employees in their development by providing technical further education, training and seminar attendance. As a result of our expansion projects there is the possibility to advance your career nationally or internationally within the Company or within the VERBIO Group as a whole. At all times this is done in line with the agreements made between you and your supervisor.

No suitable position listed for you here? You are welcome to send us an initiative application. Even if we are not currently advertising a position which is appropriate to your qualifications and your objectives, we will still be pleased to receive an initiative application from you and we will examine what other opportunities might be available.

Currently VERBIO has subsidiaries in Poland, Hungary, India, the USA and Canada. Some of these are responsible for administrative activities (procurement, sales), some have research and development activities, and some are manufacturing entities. The internationalisation of VERBIO has only just started, with further international activities planned in the future. Depending on relevant qualifications, these will offer you various opportunities to work in foreign locations on a temporary or long-term basis, or even opportunities to develop your career at one of our foreign companies. In many departments there are opportunities to be part of international teams while working at our German operations, too.

We provide training; our German locations regularly have places available for apprenticeships for training as chemical plant operators (m/f/d). As a rule, apprentices are offered continued employment at the Company after successfully completing their training. We also train chemical laboratory technicians (m/f/d), electricians (m/f/d), mechatronic engineers (m/f/d), heavy goods vehicle drivers (m/f/d) and agricultural service technicians (m/f/d). However, these apprenticeships are not all available in every training year, and are not all available at all of VERBIO’s German locations. If you are interested, refer to our training section on a regular basis.

Please get in touch with us. We offer opportunities to cooperate on writing dissertation/thesis papers and internship and student trainee positions, depending on the nature of the tasks, relevance of the topics, objectives and duration. These are discussed on an individual basis.
