Step by step to apply to internal roles

Before you begin: Preparing Yourself for an Internal Move

We encourage you to have an open discussion with your manager about your interest in applying to other positions in HelloFresh. We recommend that the latest you should inform them is when you reach the final stage of the interview process for the new role.

Our differences makes us stronger; inclusion makes them matter. That’s why building a strong culture is important to us — once you join the flock, we have many ways for you to get involved and bring your “whole self” to your role. Our employee groups foster supportive environments for employees of various backgrounds, and have also led the charge on incredible programming and initiatives, both internal and external.

Step 1: Submit Your Application

Ready to apply?
Apply using our internal job board.
Please note: You will require access to Greenhouse for this, if you do not have access then contact your local TA team. 

If you have questions about the role, contact the recruiter listed on the job posting.
If you would like to keep your application confidential, please disclose this in your application. 

If you don't have a HelloFresh Group email address, you can apply via the external portal

Step 2: The Fresh Chat

Once your application has been submitted, the recruiter and hiring manager will carefully review your application.


The recruiter will book a Fresh Chat with all internal applicants to discuss:

  • Career aspirations
  • Is this role in line with your goals? 
  • Overall skills add 
  • Administrative requirements
  • Salary, relocation requirements (i.e. visa) 


After the Fresh Chat:
Following the Fresh Chat, the recruiter will inform the employee if they have been shortlisted (selected) for an interview, they will then undergo a streamlined interview process. The interview stages are determined based on the seniority and technical requirements of the position. Candidates will receive feedback either through the recruiter or the hiring manager.

If the employee does not meet the position requirements, the recruiter will book time with the employee to discuss rejection reasoning. 

Step 3: Skills Assessment

Once the internal employee has been selected to proceed to the next step of the interview process, the employee will normally undergo a shortened series of interviews specific to the role, such as:

  • Technical Interview or Test (if the skills required are not demonstrated in the current role);
  • Stakeholder Interview: Leadership Interview, Cross-Functional Interview, etc.

When to include your line manager:
If you have shared your application process with your line manager, it is encouraged that the line manager and hiring manager meet at this stage of the interview process to discuss your candidacy. 
If the application has been kept confidential, the employee is required to inform their manager of their application status once they have have been informed they are a finalist and before an offer is made.

Step 4: Offer Stage

If the employee is selected for the role:
The involved parties (Recruiter, People Partner, Hiring Manager, and Line Manager) will extend an offer. 

If the employee is not selected for the role:
The recruiter will share the initial round of feedback. The candidate also has the option to set up a follow-up call with the hiring manager to discuss the feedback more in detail.
It is encouraged that the employee discusses this feedback in future career development conversations with their line manager.

Step 5: Transition Plan

Transition Planning:
The Hiring Manager and the Line Manager will discuss the start date and create a detailed training & offboarding handover plan. 
A suitable time frame for both parties will be established, without exceeding the notice period that is indicated for your current position (unless for business critical reasons).

International Moves:
The Hiring Manager’s local Mobility Team and People Admin will be the primary points of contact during the transition. The receiving team’s entity will own the relocation process, working closely with the other entity’s HR department and the responsible recruiter. 
They will support you with the Visa applications and relocation support 

Compensation

Compensation for the new role will be determined at the time of hire, taking into consideration lateral or vertical movement, cross country, levelling and a number of other factors, including the skill level of the individual hires. The recruiter will work with the local HRBP team and Rewards team to create a proposal, which will be shared with the hiring manager.

In many cases for lateral movements, compensation may not be changed due to the nature of movement and can be reserved until the next appraisal cycle. The compensation for the new internal role is determined by the new role’s salary band. Tenure and experience at the company should positively influence the decided compensation.

(For SE: The new compensation must be within the new band. It can never be less than the employee’s current compensation.) 

Additional Information (SE only)

The TA Team submits a hiring hearing to the Works Council, who will do a final review and approval of the internal hiring measure. Among others, the Works Council will verify that your compensation is within the band for your position, and that labour laws and internal agreements are followed (e.g. no limited contract for internal hires).

[Optional] If you wish to get an interim recommendation letter (Zwischenzeugnis), ask your current manager for it. If you require a draft please ask your HRBP point of contact.
