Searching for a new job and finding a company that is the right fit for you is not easy. We understand! You may have questions before you are ready to apply and we are here to help. To aid in your research we give an overview of our recruitment process below.
We adapt to different situations and adjust recruitment processes to our different functions. For functions in which you directly work with our animals, we prefer a more informal and personal approach. Plus, we tend to act quickly – especially when our animals need people to watch over them with care.
We had cases where we felt such a great connection, so people have started their animal-related job only one week after application. For these functions, background and affinity with the animal sector are the most important drivers.
You’ve decided to apply!
If you have applied for a job at Hendrix Genetics via our Job Search section, you will receive an automated e-mail response confirming receipt of your application. Due to the large volume of applications we receive, we are unable to personally respond to each and every one. If you meet the job profile requirements, you will be contacted directly by a recruiter.
You’ve made the first cut
Initial contact may begin with a short get to know you call or a personal profile analysis to determine a candidate’s behavioral style. The interview process is a perfect way to get to know each other. But we believe it should works both ways. Don’t be afraid to ask us questions as a new job can have a great impact on your life. Be yourself and show your personality! Tell us about your ideal career path, and if it’s a match we can work together to achieve your goals.
If everything is a good fit with your application and initial get to know you call, you may receive a request for a face-to-face interview with a hiring manager, and in most cases, a supervisor. If this first interview feels like a success on both sides, a second interview may be scheduled before final selection occurs.
We take the selection process very seriously. We are not only trying to find someone that we think is a good fit for our company but also that we can help to grow and prosper in their career.
If you are the chosen candidate, Congratulations and welcome to the family! We will inform you shortly after the interview process.
Unfortunately not every candidate is the right fit for us, or us for them. If you are not selected but have gone through the interview process, we will inform you of this outcome. We encourage you to apply again if a new job opens up in the future that may better match your qualifications. We will also keep your resume in our database in case it matches other opportunities that arise in the future.

We adapt to different situations and adjust recruitment processes to our different functions. For functions in which you directly work with our animals, we prefer a more informal and personal approach.
For the other job functions, there are standard elements to distinguish. We act according to the ‘grandfather’ principle. After your application – if you get selected - expect one interview with a hiring manager, and in most cases a supervisor. When this first round feels like a success on both sides, we plan a second interview before our final choice. We may use a personal profile analysis to assess a candidate’s behavioral style.
First. Thank you so much for your application, we really appreciate it! We would be happy to consider your application again, if an opportunity opens up in the future.
As Hendrix Genetics grows, internal possibilities do too. We are proud of the opportunities we can and will offer. Think e-learning, modern workplaces, seminars and international courses like cross cultural awareness. And opportunities to travel the world, if that’s what your dream of. We think opportunities and listen, internal cross-boarding – switching to another job or field of expertise - is not uncommon at Hendrix Genetics.
Our global animal welfare policy safeguards their welfare while stringent biosecurity measures counter the ever-present threat of disease. Employees working with animals handle them like responsible parents, we only use antibiotics when truly necessary and we are committed to safeguarding the welfare of all animals under our care. Thanks to these efforts our unique generations of species – from trout to turkeys; poultry to pigs – are already a cut above the rest.
