Publication of a job ad
Stage 1 assumes publication of a job ad at kp.pl and chosen employment sites, including social media and local newspapers.
Collection of candidate applications
The candidates’ data is gathered electronically with the use of a system facilitating collection of all applications in one place. You will be asked to fill in a short form and enclose necessary application documents. At this stage, we also verify the applications of candidates who spontaneously sent their CVs to our base.
Our recruitment team selects people who meet our expectations. Therefore, for many candidates it is a decisive stage of the process. We will notify you, if you advance to the next stage.
Depending on the job, further stages can encompass phone interviews and/or skills and language tests. You might be invited to take part in the Assessment Centre.
If you are successful with the phone interview or your tests, you will be invited to a face-to-face interview. This will give you an opportunity to meet your immediate manager and HR officer. We arrange for our candidates to meet at least two people to make sure that our assessment is objective.
Meeting the manager
The last stage features a meeting with a high-level supervisor. If you succeed at this stage –welcome at KP!
Read our advertisement thoroughly, paying attention to both the duties related to the job and the requirements we have set out for the candidates. Imagine your typical day at work and the tasks you would have to complete. If this is what you are looking for and you think you can meet our expectations, contact us. Your experience and competence will be verified already at the initial stage of the recruitment process.
The document we always require is CV, but you can also send us your cover letter. During the application process, you might also be asked to fill in a short application form. Make sure that all the documents are “custom-made”, do not send mass emails with the same applications, and approach every potential employer individually.
Your CV is your chance to make a great first impression and it helps us decide whether to proceed with the recruitment process. Therefore, it is worth spending some time working on the document to convince us that we should meet you in person. A few things to pay attention to:
- prepare documents in the required language version,
- if you decide to include your photograph, please make sure that it is professional and up-to-date,
- when describing your professional experience, list the duties or projects you have completed along with the name of the employer, your function and time of employment – specify your responsibilities and completed tasks,
- highlight any additional experience or interests relevant to the job,
- your CV should be in line with the nature of the job you apply for,
- be careful not to embellish your achievements - remember that you will have to confirm what you have written during the interview,
- always include your consent to process your personal data.
It is not mandatory, but we would like to read it to get to know you better. Your letter should be well thought out - show us that you are the candidate we should choose and explain why Kompania Piwowarska is the company you want to work for. Describe the most interesting experiences and projects you were involved in, to demonstrate that you are a good candidate for the job. Explain any inconsistencies in your CV, e.g. why you are applying for a job in Warsaw when you live in Gdańsk.

The support we provide within the Kompania of Volunteers programme is in line with our sustainable development strategy “Bet on Beer” and aimed at adults only. Since 2016, we have been proudly supporting the WIOSNA Association within the Noble Box programme. Kompania Piwowarska co-funds preparation of the packages and helps deliver them to warehouses and families in need. The first edition of the programme has engaged nearly 75% of our employees. The Noble Box turned out to be the greatest volunteering programme in the history of our company, and we keep pushing it forward every year.
Tyskie Cup is an annual charity football tournament for the employees of Kompania Piwowarska. The winners can dedicate their performance to chosen aid agencies from their regions. In 2017, for the first time ever, the matches took place at the PGE National Stadium in Warsaw – previously, the tournament was organized in smaller venues across different cities, including Poznan and Tychy.
The teams compete for a few hours in groups to then advance to the knockout stage, but, in fact, there are no losers in the tournament – even the eliminated teams receive commemorative trophies and diplomas. Besides the final result, what matters most is the fun atmosphere and opportunity to help others. Each team can dedicate their performance to a specific social organization that, in case of a win, will get a donation from Kompania Piwowarska.
Bet on Exercise
Bet on Exercise is a programme that we have been executing for a few years now to promote physical activity among Kompania Piwowarska’s employees and business partners, including running, walking, cycling and other popular forms of exercise. The participants are being encouraged to healthy sports competition and teamwork, while pursuing a charity goal and taking part in special challenges and organized sports events under the patronage of Lech Free.
Bet on Exercise combines entertainment and promotion of a healthy, eco-friendly lifestyle, while simultaneously supporting a charity goal. The participants register the distance they have managed to cover with the use of a sports activity app on their smart phones or GPS watches, and every kilometre brings them closer to achieving a mutual goal.
As a result of the campaign, our employees have planted 3,000 trees in the Knyszyn Forest. Thanks to their involvement, KP has already provided financial support to three tandem clubs for the blind from Poznan, Tychy and Bialystok. This year, after reaching the ambitious goal of 300,000 km, KP will cover the cost of a prosthesis for one of the patients of the Poland Business Run foundation.
