Arkema’s recruitment process

Check out our recruitment process step by step. Apply to work with us in just a few clicks.

1. Application

Are you interested in our group? Would you like to join our team? Go ahead and send us your résumé! Simply click on “apply for this job” when you have found a job that interests you. We look forward to hearing from you!

2. Preselection over the phone

We will first agree on a time for a phone interview in order to confirm our shared wish to move forward with the interview process for the position.


During the phone interview (15 to 20 minutes), we will talk to you about the job requirements, and we will discuss your own expectations and aspirations. This way we can decide together on the future consideration of your application.

3. Interview with human resources

You will be invited to the headquarters by someone from the HR team for an open discussion about your career path. We would like to take the time to hear about what motivates you, your values, and your expectations, to see how they correspond with the job vacancy.


In the short term, this interview allows us to evaluate how appropriate your profile is for a given position, and also to discuss your future development within the Group.

4. Interview with operations staff

After the interviews with HR, you will be invited to meet members of our operations team to have a more “technical” discussion about your future workplace, to help you take a look at your new environment and get to know the teams you will be working with each day.


You will speak with the business function manager, the head of your host entity, and your direct supervisor. These interviews will provide you with more specific details about what the position entails and will validate your technical skills.

5. Recruitment/hiring decision

After these different interviews, the HR teams and operations staff will meet to evaluate your overall candidacy (personality, technical skills, etc.).


We will then call you to inform you of our decision:


  • If your application has not been successful, we will explain to you the reasons why.
  • If you are selected, we will make you a job offer. The decision will then be up to you whether you want to join the Arkema team!


If the decision is easy and you don’t have any doubts; don’t hesitate. Let us know as soon as possible whether you would like to work with us.

That being said, changing job and moving to a different company is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. You will have a few days to think about it before making your decision. During this period, we are happy to answer any additional questions you may have.

6. Induction

Welcome to Arkema!


We place great importance on welcoming our new employees. After a few weeks of on-the-job training, you will be invited to an induction seminar with all our new recruits from all different areas of the company. There, you will find out more about Arkema’s DNA, its strategy, and much more! It’s a great opportunity to meet new people in the company.
