Frequently asked questions
How do I apply for a job at Baloise?

By clicking on the "Apply now" button beneath the job advert which interests you. You will see what documents you need and what questions we ask you in the application process at the overview page in the beginning.

Can I apply if I haven't found a suitable job?

You can register your details and your CV in our Talent Pool. 

Can I apply by post, email or social media?

Unfortunately not. Please apply online by clicking on the “Apply now” button in the job advertisement. Note that you won't need to register with a password to apply.

Why not?

  • Firstly, every month we receive hundreds of applications, which is why we have to use an applications database. The risk of delays to the processing of applications made via different channels, or that the application will be lost, is too great.
  • As we record personal data for each application, for data protection reasons we are obliged to use to a system that offers us a high level of security for our candidates’ data. 
I have forgotten my user name and/or password!

No problem. Click on the “Forgot your password?” button in the user login area. We will then send you an email with your new login details.

If you continue experiencing problems, contact us. We will help you.

How can I withdraw my application?

If you would like to withdraw your application, please log into our job portal first. A direct login link will be sent to you by e-mail with your application confirmation.

You can find your applications under "My applications". There you will find a list of all the jobs you have applied for. With the button "Withdraw" you retract your application. If you have uploaded job-specific documents, you can delete them under "Attachments".

How can I access my data in order to update or delete it?

You have access to your data at any time in our job portal. A direct login link will be sent to you by e-mail with your application confirmation. There you can change your application answers, your profile and your contact data as well as upload additional documents. 

Delete data

You can revoke individual applications with "Withdraw".

To delete all data in the system, press the "Delete profile" button at the end of your profile overview. This will withdraw all applications and make your profile invisible to users. Your data will be deleted within the usual legal deadlines. Further information can be found in our privacy statement for applicants.

What should be included in a complete application?

Your application creates our first impression of you. The more convincing and complete it is, the better the impression we will have of you. Normally, a complete application will include:

  • your CV (maximum 2 pages)
  • a motivation letter
  • your employment reference letters
  • your main education certificates

For some jobs, we do not require a motivation letter and ask you to answer a few questions instead. The exact requirements are always given at the end of the job advertisement.

Still not sure what constitutes a good application?

How do I attach documents to my application?

Simply add your documents in the “Cover letter and attachments” section while completing the application. If you would like to add more documents later on, you can log in to the Talent Pool and supplement your application.

File size

You can add five attachments of a maximum size of 2 MB. We know: that isn't much, unfortunately. If you find you have reached the limit of what the system can handle, the following tips will help:

As a recruiting agency, how can I collaborate with Baloise?

When working with recruiting agencies, the Baloise Group attaches great importance to partnerships and mutual transparency. We only work with selected recruiters. If you have any questions about this, email

Please do not send us unsolicited candidate details. Application files sent to us by email, post or via our career portal by recruiters who are not known to us will not be pursued. The procedure does not satisfy our privacy policy.
