Yes. We offer a multitude of flexitime models, thereby taking the different needs of our employees into account and promoting a work-life balance.
Mobile working is an integral part of our working culture. All employees are technically equipped to work flexibly from home or on the road in Germany - currently up to 60% of their working hours per month. How this works out in concrete terms is decided in consultation with the line manager. It is our goal to create an optimal working environment and to take into account the different needs of our employees.
As part of our pension components scheme, we offer our employees a company pension that is fully financed by the employer. This can additionally be topped up through gross deferred compensation. In addition to the payment of an old-age pension, the pension scheme also includes an invalidity pension (full) and a survivor's pension.
Employees also have the option of paying into a direct insurance policy through gross deferred compensation as well as into a deferred compensation (later capital payment).
Our employees network very well beyond the various departments. Regular interaction takes place at all sites thanks to our lunch culture. For example, it is customary to take turns having lunch with different colleagues in the company's own canteen. Colleagues also enjoy spending their coffee breaks together. Our corporate events are important for social relationships, too. In addition to summer parties and Christmas parties, sporting events such as the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge and the activities of KfW's in-house sports groups are popular occasions for getting together and opportunities for a lively exchange.
The demands on the bank are constantly changing, as are those placed on our employees. For this reason, we offer a broad range of internal and external further training opportunities through the bank’s own learning portal – from agile working techniques to gender balance, from leadership to Excel programming, from communication to personal development, from deeply specialised training to various forms of language courses.
The professional qualifications have to be right, of course. Your personality and professional goals are also very important to us. Please refer to the vacancy in question for the specific requirements.

Customised "off-the-job" skills development measures supplement the activities you undertake in preparation for your future position. KfW IPEX-Bank's trainee programmes are of different lengths from 12 to 16 months depending on the focus of the task.

A key requirement is your professional competence. You should have successfully completed at least three semesters of study, e.g. in business administration, economics, political sciences, business mathematics or a comparable degree programme of relevance to the internship or student traineeship in question. We are also interested in your personal qualities and professional goals.
You are enrolled as a full-time student at a state-recognised university and have not yet sat your final examination. Alternatively, you are between your Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes. Students must not take leave from their degree programme during a student traineeship. Interns may only take leave in exceptional cases justified by the university, e.g. if the internship falls in a semester that would otherwise have to be spent abroad.
Generally speaking, KfW IPEX-Bank does not set fixed dates for starting an internship or student traineeship. If you have a preferred start date, we should receive your application at least two to three months beforehand. Also in this case, you should ensure that your employment only takes place during the study programme or between the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes, and that you have not yet taken the final examination (e.g. handed in your dissertation or sat your oral examination).
Your documents should be complete and meaningful, so we know instantly whether you are the right candidate:
Whether or not your internship at our company can be credited as a mandatory internship will depend on the requirements of your degree programme. Before we conclude a contract, you should therefore provide confirmation from the university that your internship at our company is recognised as a mandatory internship for the full period according to the applicable examination regulations. Only once we are completely satisfied that your internship is a mandatory internship can you be released from the obligation to pay social insurance contributions. Please note that this exemption will not apply if you take leave from your degree programme for the period of the internship.
