Over Rheinmetall

Rheinmetall AG currently employs over 25,767 people worldwide and in 2019, achieved an annual revenue of over 6.3 billion Euros.

The Challenge

Rheinmetall enjoys a reputation as a superior employer which attracts outsized volumes of candidates to published requisitions, in addition to large numbers of proactive, open applications. A significant number of these applicants are unlikely to be placed within the organisation, and yet, still require the attention and bandwidth of the recruiting team. Candidate-facing communication channels such as Linkedin or other local social media generate additional requests and submissions that the recruiting team is tasked with evaluating.

With approximately 500 published requisitions at any given time, Rheinmetall’s recruiting team was challenged with providing a great candidate experience and being responsive to high potential candidates.


The Solution

Embed Textkernel’s Career Portal Matching on the Rheinmetall career site to offer candidates the ability to quickly and easily find suitable job matches by uploading their CV. Candidates are served up not only direct job matches but also other possible roles which they may not have otherwise considered. This ensures that candidates leave the career portal with a sense of having thoroughly explored all options.

The ability to submit proactive, open applications when no suitable vacancies were identified would be reduced to only candidates with business-critical profiles i.e. engineering or IT profiles.

The Benefits

With the help of Textkernel's career portal matching, Rheinmetall was able to reduce the recruiting workload, better match top performing candidates to open vacancies and significantly improve the candidate experience.
