As an innovative company and global player, Covestro offers its employees outstanding long-term prospects. In doing so, it places particular emphasis on providing young people with sound professional formation. In 2020 alone, 483 young professionals were employed by Covestro in Germany.
“Starthilfe” makes young people fit to start their career
At its sites in North Rhine-Westphalia and in Brunsbüttel, Covestro is also making a very special commitment with “Starthilfe” program, a program designed to help young professionals get a good start in their careers. The program provides one year of support for young people who do not yet have an apprenticeship, giving them a genuine chance of receiving a qualified professional formation – regardless of their school-leaving qualifications or grades. In 2020, 32 young people at Covestro's German sites took part in the “Starthilfe” program dedicated to providing career orientation and preparation.
Its highly qualified and committed employees from all over the world are one reason for Covestro’s success story in Germany. They are the ones who make sure that the production plants are always setting new standards – in terms of quality, efficiency and safety. In keeping with the company's values curious, courageous, and colorful, the Covestro team is also breaking new ground and pushing boundaries that were previously considered insurmountable. A strong network of state-of-the-art production plants and research centers is always on hand. Not only are ideas created here, this is where they are implemented.

In North Rhine-Westphalia, the company operates sites in Leverkusen, Dormagen and Krefeld-Uerdingen. The three sites have been part of a successful site network since 2010. In Brunsbüttel, Covestro plays a dual role – as manager of its own production plants and as operator of the Covestro Industrial Park Brunsbüttel. Two wholly-owned Covestro subsidiaries operate at the two sites in Markt Bibart and Bomlitz.
