How good must my standard of German be?
German is our corporate language. In order to be successful during the basic training and in internal communication with colleagues and customers, you will need a fluent knowledge of German.
  
How good must my knowledge of English be?
As we have an international airport as our base, we require a basic knowledge of English as a minimum.

I have no knowledge of security issues. Can I still apply?
No previous knowledge is necessary. The basic training cours prepares you perfectly for your job. However, you should bring a high level of service orientation and an empathic, respectful attitude towards our customers.


Is there any point in making a fresh application after being rejected? 
As we examine all applications thoroughly and make our decision regarding a rejection carefully, we would ask you to refrain from making a fresh application.
Since every position makes different demands of the applicant, the decision in respect of another position may be to your advantage.

Can I apply for the position of Security Agent even though I have not passed the Ishihara test?
Unfortunately, there is no point in applying in this case, as you will not be allowed to work with a monitor because of the red-green visual impairment.
