"I work in fiber optics."

All NBG companies deal with the subject of fiber optics. Our companies are specialists in producing optical fiber, fiber preforms, and the protective element around the optical fiber (Fiber in Metal Tubes). In addition to passive fiber optic components, we also offer sensor applications in the fiber optic field (paired with 3D printing) and provide planning, services, or assistance in assembling fiber optic lines. In the market, we are always a step ahead of our competitors.

Why NBG?

Our employees are often asked: "You work at NBG, don't you? Is it really as great as everyone says? (Quote The answer to that is "YES." Of course, we also have challenging tasks and things that we don't always enjoy, and sometimes we have a bad day. Nevertheless, we work towards a common goal on an equal footing. And that welds us together.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, we are currently training mechatronics engineers and media designers. However, since we want to offer our apprentices training at the highest level, we only offer a very small number of apprenticeships. Try your luck and send us your application documents

Yes, absolutely. We will treat your application confidentially. Only the employees in the personnel office and the employees who are directly responsible for the selection will see your documents. Your current boss will not see anything (unless you tell him about your application).

Yes, we offer a few vacations and compulsory internship positions in the areas of "IT/EDP" and "Backoffice/Office" every year. Often in December, we select the interns for the coming summer.

You can send us your documents via e-mail, Facebook, Linkedin, Xing, Whatsapp, mail, or, best of all, via our Online platform. No matter what you decide, all applications end up digitally in our online application system. This makes our work easier and helps us to ensure that no application is lost.

We don't want to influence you too much on this point. Of course, a resume helps us to get to know you first. A few words about what you are interested in (cover letter) make it easier for us to find the ideal job for you. We rarely look at school reports and do not attach great importance to them. If you would rather present yourself in an application video, you are welcome to do so.

Salary depends on several factors: Among other things - but by no means exclusively - the collective agreement, the advertised job, and your previous experience. In the NBG Group, we use the collective agreements from the metal industry/metal trade, chemical industry, electrical industry, trade, and general trade. Just ask the HR team which collective agreement and classification applies to you and how much the job is overpaid. We will be happy to provide you with information.

Sometimes this can happen very quickly with us, and only a few hours pass from your application to the contract. But that tends to be the exception. Especially with unsolicited applications, it can take several months. After all, we want to offer you something that fits you perfectly. If you apply online, you will immediately receive a confirmation of receipt. If you don't hear back from us, you can call us to find out the current status of your application. We are looking forward to your call.

Absolutely. Over 95% of our employees had no prior experience with fiber optics before starting at NBG. We are constantly growing and happy to pass on our knowledge to new colleagues. From your first day on the job, we will teach you everything you need to know about fiber optics.
