Tips on how to apply to Evotec

What should my CV include?

Please do carefully consider the role you are applying for and tailor your CV accordingly. It’s important to clearly and concisely present all your relevant skills, experience and training.

Do I need a cover letter?

Yes, it’s always a good idea to include a cover letter. It complements your CV and makes your application more specific to the role. The letter should describe specifically how you meet the requirements for the role; it is a real opportunity to show why you feel the role would suit you. The information that you have provided in both your CV and cover letter will be used to review your application. No other documentation is required at the application stage. We recommend that you proofread and spellcheck your CV and cover letter. If you provide us with your email address, you will receive an email acknowledgement following your application.

Will I be invited to an interview?

We will review your application and check how well your CV and cover letter match the requirements of the role. If we feel that you may be suitable for the role, we will invite you for a phone/WebEx or face-to-face interview.

What does an interview involve?

If you are invited for a face-to-face interview at an Evotec site, we will schedule appointments for you with a number of Evotec colleagues to give you the opportunity to get to know Evotec as a company and to ask any questions you might have.

During your interview, we will ask you various questions which focus on your skills, knowledge and experience in past roles. It’s not a question of getting the answers right or wrong, but providing relevant examples of your work experience which demonstrate your ability to do the role you’ve applied for. For most roles, the process will include a technical interview relevant to the position you have applied for, and may involve you presenting on a topic to a small audience. Our assessment approach will be clearly outlined in your invitation to an interview.
