With approximately 22,000 job openings, DB has successfully continued its personnel plan during the second year of the pandemic while fulfilling its 2021 plan. The recruitments included over five thousand young professionals. That was a new record for the company. With the massive investments in personnel and qualification, DB wants to further strengthen the rail transport mode, thus making a decisive contribution to the mobility transition. DB Human Resources Director Martin Seiler stated: “The mobility transition needs committed employees.”

Chief Officer of Human resources has proudly welcomed four new employees from across the country during an online press conference. The new employees got initiated on behalf of thousands of co-workers. It is obvious that during the tough pandemic days, the applicants were looking for steady job positions. The fear of insecurity brought a wide range of applicants that applied for diverse positions. 

DB issued most of the job offers in the following job groups

Rail and rail vehicle maintenance: around 2,720

engineers: around 2,410

train drivers: roughly 1,760

dispatchers: around 1,160

DB Personnel Director Martin Seiler: “We keep our word and continue to invest at a high level in infrastructure, new vehicles, train stations - and in personnel! Because: The mobility transition requires committed employees! 22,000 times this year, we put our heads and offered an employment contract. From the engineer to the train driver, we warmly welcome new colleagues. We believe that diversity makes us strong. The high number of recruits also shows that the DB is an attractive employer in an unclear job market. "
