Our Recruitment Process

What colleagues have to say.

We have asked our employees for their opinion

Bastian Billmann Asahi Kasei

Challenging but incredibly rewarding!

My team is met with an ever-increasing number of customer projects. Turning a new, empty room into our next battery laboratory is a sometimes challenging but truly awesome task to be working on right now! We have a small yet strong research and development department.

Being a (electro-) chemist, working in this synergistic environment at Asahi Kasei Europe is a great opportunity as it offers valuable insights to other fields of chemistry and allows for exciting and productive discussions.

My advice to You: While previous contact to Japanese culture might be a starting advantage, it is not a prerequisite – as shown in my case. Being open-minded and passionate about your work, that will do the trick.

Battery Laboratory Engineer (Joined 2022)

Miguel Galvan Asahi Kasei

I have found some good friends here!

I really like to support the customers to evaluate our products, and later, to help them to develop new products with our semiconductors, also I really like that our team always work tight together to achieve this goal, both our colleges in AKM EU and AKM Japan.

I think, that in this company, it stands out how the company cares about the health of the employees.

My advice to You: I would advise to new recruits to maintain an open and clear discussion with colleagues and managers to avoid possible cultural miscommunication.

Tatiana Falca Asahi Kasei

Diversity, innovation and being open for new challenges.

I can name three things that I enjoy the most in my daily work. First, are the people that I work with and their diverse background. Second, I like the sustainability aspect of my work as well as the impact it can have on our company and beyond. Lastly, I enjoy continuously learning about new topics.

Asahi Kasei Europe for me is a big and diverse family with one mission – to lead our company’s global growth towards a sustainable and healthy society in Europe and beyond.

My advice to You coincides with Asahi Kasei values: To be yourself (Sincerity), to be open minded (Creativity) and to be brave especially when feeling challenged (Challenge).

Tobias Kellen Asahi Kasei

“Creating for Tomorrow” - To do your best!

In Accounting, I am connected to all departments inside the company. This means I am literally in touch with each of our colleagues, which I like a lot. Most important about Asahi Kasei Europe (AKEU) for me is, that it is a Japanese company and I can dive into Japanese culture. Because I have a Japanese family, working in AKEU and exchanging culture and knowledge is a great opportunity.

My advice to You: Be open and try to connect with all people in AKEU. Discover all the nice cultural possibilities that is given in Asahi Kasei Japan/Europe. And of course, join the softball team! We need you!
