Our application process and FAQ
Would you like to start your career at MEDICE? Then we look forward to receiving your application, online or by post. As soon as we have your application, you will receive a confirmation from us by email. We will then look through your application with the relevant department. At MEDICE we promote equal professional opportunities for women and men and foster a good work-life balance. Mutual respect, diversity and inclusion are important values in our JobFamily. This means that, in the event of applicants being equally suitable and equally well qualified, we will give preference to applicants (m/f/d) living with severe disabilities.
For us it is very important that we are a good fit for one another, so meeting in person is vital. If both sides have a good feeling after the first and second interviews, we may even be able to show you your future work area straight away. Then we can start! We’ll prepare the contract for signature and get everything ready for your first day at work. To help you find your way around and be well prepared for your new area of responsibility, we will draw up a detailed induction plan for you. Welcome to the MEDICE JobFamily!
Safety First – Recruitment in Corona Times
We are still looking for reinforcements for our JobFamily!
Despite of the very challenging situation – Medice is developing further.
More than ever, we are using digital communication for recruitment.
But we do not want to miss the opportunity of the personal touch whilst making such an important decision.
Considering the restrictions during this unpleasant time, we will still be completing face-to-face interviews - ideally, weather permitting, outside.
To meet everybodies requirements we offer flexible arrangements according to the wishes of the applicants.
We have also changed our onboarding procedure. Even so to start in a home-office is not ideal, but our experienced staff will make you very welcome and be by your side to help you with a professional on-the-job training – of course always with the necessary distancing.

Have you researched a suitable job profile and read about the application process but still have questions? Here we list the answers to some frequently asked questions.
Both are possible: if you’re applying online, please send your application to email@example.com; if you’re applying by post, please send your application to MEDICE Arzneimittel Pütter GmbH & Co. KG, HR department, Kuhloweg 37, 58638 Iserlohn, Germany.
Our website is constantly updated – all published job opportunities are current.
No, we just draw up a shortlist. Since we want to give a chance to as many applicants as possible, we also accept suitable applications during the first interview rounds.
Please do! We’re pleased you’re so committed. In this case, it is particularly important that you highlight your profile and any specialist areas, and tell us which area you would like to work in.
Because of the many regulations in the pharmaceutical industry, you will need lots of training and an intensive induction, particularly in the first few months, before you can start working in your actual job. So the time limit on the job is an extended probation period. We want to be sure that you have enough time to get to know your area of work and the special context of the pharmaceutical industry properly. At MEDICE we think long-term, so we’re looking for long-term support – we want the decision to be well thought through. If things go well, temporary contracts are often converted to permanent ones well before they run out.
You will receive a confirmation by email as soon as we have your application. The time it takes to receive an invitation to an interview or a rejection depends on the number of applications we receive, but you will usually hear from us in less than four weeks.
Please send us a short covering letter stating the job you are applying for, a CV and your main qualification certificates. As well as your contact details and salary expectations, please let us know how much notice you need to give your current employer or the earliest date you are able to start work at MEDICE.
The language we use at MEDICE is German. For clear communications with all employees, your German should be good enough to understand documents and correspondence in the complex context of the pharmaceutical industry without any difficulty.
You may send enquiries at any time by email firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp +49 173 392 8092. You can also contact Ms Lea Krüger +49 2371 937-540 or Ms Karina Blach +49 2371 937-171 directly. We will always get back to you. Sometimes we may have to ask you to be patient – especially if we have received a large number of applications. But you can be sure that everyone will be given the same opportunity.
No, there is no dress code at MEDICE. As long as you are dressed appropriately for your position, that is perfectly adequate.
School pupils, apprentices and students
We are delighted that you are interested in MEDICE! Not all our positions for school pupils and students are advertised, so please do send us a speculative application as soon as possible. Positions in the QC, Galenics and QA pharmaceutical areas and in IT are usually planned a year in advance.
Everything is possible – from a taster day as part of a school careers guidance programme, or a voluntary or compulsory internship in the holidays, to internships lasting several months as part of a university degree, retraining or apprenticeship.
Yes, please do. However, school holiday jobs are only open to pupils aged 16 years or over, are only available in the summer holidays and last a minimum of two weeks – please send us your brief application by April of the year in which you wish to start your holiday job. For jobs in the university holidays, please send us your brief application at least two months in advance and state the exact period you are interested in.
There is no fixed date, but your application should reach us by November at the latest – ideally by October – because MEDICE apprenticeships always start on 1 August the following year.
