Our application process

Are you looking for a challenge at Swinkels Family Brewers? Based on the following steps, we determine whether we can strengthen each other.

1. You apply

Applying is easy. Start by going to our vacancy overview. Here you can search for the vacancy that matches your ambitions. You can respond directly to a vacancy via the application button. Enter your details, upload your CV as a Word or PDF file and write a convincing application letter. 

TIP: Describe in your letter clearly what you are looking for, but do not forget to mention why you are the perfect candidate for this vacancy.

2. We assess your application

Once you have completed the online application form, you will receive an automatic email confirmation of receipt. You will receive feedback within two weeks. If your application enthuses us we will invite you to an introductory meeting.  

If we think that our vacancy and your CV do not fit well together, we will look for other vacancies that may be better suited to you. If this is the case, a colleague from our HR department will contact you to discuss the vacancy. If it turns out that we do not have a suitable vacancy for you at the time of application, we will send you a reasoned rejection of your application. 

3. We have an introductory meeting

In an open conversation, we will try to get a good impression of your background and personality. Because we think it is important that you also get a good picture of us and our company, there will be plenty of room to ask questions during the interview.

Usually our application process consists of two meetings. During these you will meet your direct supervisor, a colleague from HR, a direct colleague and the manager of your supervisor. An assessment is part of the procedure for some vacancies. 
After the introductory meeting, you will receive feedback by telephone from one of your discussion partners. We then give you feedback on the impression you have made.

TIP: you can prepare for the job interview by reading our website, for example. You can also prepare some questions, so that you can get a good picture of the vacancy and our organisation.

4. We compile a contract proposal

If we are both enthusiastic after the introductory talks, we will gladly present you with a contract proposal. This proposal will be discussed with you by the responsible HR Business Partner (by telephone). If you agree with our contract proposal, we will draw up a contract for you and welcome you warmly to Swinkels Family Brewers!

5. We retain your data

When you apply at Swinkels Family Brewers, your data is automatically stored in our database for a period of one year. This allows us to contact you if a new vacancy that matches your background becomes available. Of course, we will treat your data as strictly confidential. It is possible to unregister from our database at any time. This can be done by sending an email to hr@swinkelsfamilybrewers.com

The indicated reaction times are a guideline. If we receive many applications, it may be that it takes a little longer for you to receive a response from us. The above application procedure may differ per business unit.
