In the first half of 2022, DB Group hired in Germany more young professionals than in the same period in the previous year. For the third year impacted by Covid-19, and the seventh year in a row overall, DB Group also increased its training capacities and plans to hire in Germany around 5,200 trainees and students on a dual study course throughout the year. As a result of our recruiting activities in recent years, including during the Covid-19 pandemic, the structurally existing personnel requirements have been covered by the hires.
- Mobile jobs have been advertised in DB Group since February 2022 – these are marked on our careers Web site with the location “Wo-Du-Willst-Jobs” (Where-You-Want-Jobs).
- In accordance with the motto “Germany’s Greatest Application,” DB Group showcased itself over the course of a whole month with numerous events to mark International Women’s Day on March 8, 2022. More than 700 women received a job offer in March 2022 – significantly more than in the other months of the year.
- On May 11, 2022, the first “Female ICE!” ran from Munich to Berlin. Only women were responsible for the specially branded train. More female employees were deployed along the line – in signal towers, at stations and on construction sites. At events in Halle and Nuremberg, female DB employees also informed prospective female applicants about job profiles and exciting projects. With this campaign, a total of more than 500 DB women wanted to make a mark and encourage other women to strive for professions even in traditionally male-dominated areas and in management positions.
