Entry level

Time to write your own success story with Gruner + Jahr

Facts about your start here:

► After your apprenticeship or your studies we offer a direct entry into your dream job and thus the perspective to develop yourself further. Interesting tasks and challenges await in a wide variety of professional fields. From Data and IT to editorial departments, marketing or sales – you will find the perfect job, too!

► We want to be the most innovative, most creative and most sustainable publisher. We know that we can only be successful by acknowledging the diversity of our employees, embracing these differences and identifying the inherent opportunities

► We respect each other, regardless of what position we are in, what we look like, what we believe in and how we live and love

New work is an everyday concept for us: We are working more courageous, faster and interdisciplinarily across teams. That’s why we try out agile methods and a new organizational structure with flat hierarchies, we imagine new ways for leadership and are fans of cooperation – even beyond our company’s boundaries..


personal and professional growth

► At G+J you don’t stop moving forward: we take a holistic approach to development. We support you in finding out what your next step of development could look like – regardless of whether you’ll be needing training for a new tool, want to better your communication skills or want to turn to new challenges and responsibilities entirely!

► Communication and networking are part of our DNA. Your start at G+J will be facilitated with multiple onboarding and networking events. If that’s not enough for you: we love lunches! Get to know new people from different departments whilst enjoying the meals prepared by our inhouse canteen. In addition to that, there are regular communication-based events: have a conversation with members of our executive board or be inspired by external speakers on various topics and from various backgrounds.


► For your personal development, we offer a variety of different trainings and programs. Together with other G+J and Bertelsmann colleagues, you will learn from some of the best trainers and teachers out there!

► Transparency and sharing knowledge are some of our biggest strengths: Your colleagues become trainers at our “Kollegen-Campus”. Every employee can give a class on something they feel passionate about – from “Become an Outlook-Rockstar” to “How to write – for non-journalists”. Additionally, we offer many courses on well-known E-Learning-Platforms such as CreativeLive or LinkedIn Learning.

► It’s time for new challenges? For your next major developmental steps, we offer various programs as well as individual support and advice on all career opportunities and job changes at G+J and Bertelsmann.


► Life – that’s more than just your job. That’s why flexible working hours and arrangements are very important to us. New technologies such as Office 360 help us to provide the means for you to work from anywhere you want.

► We provide a family-friendly personnel policy by offering a range of childcare services as well as a free family service at all German locations, which supports parents in their search for childcare facilities of all kinds.


► - But that’s not all! We would love to give you more details about how we support parents in balancing family and career. Just ask us!
