What you can rely on getting from us

Individual solutions

Changes to private circumstances will occur at frequent points during your career. We therefore offer you jobs that will fit around your respective circumstances. Whether it is parental leave, going from full time to part time or the other way around – together we will find individual solutions to suit you.

Attractive job offers and remuneration

As an industrial company, we offer interesting and challenging jobs and pay our employees according to the collective wage agreements applicable in the chemical industry. In addition to an attractive salary package, this includes other benefits such as a lifelong working-time account for you as an employee, and a company pension.

Management and management culture

Effective management results in motivated employees and an effective and efficient organisation.

The aim of this document is to develop the management behaviour and management culture of VSM with this in mind. The principles described here are binding for all managers of VSM and form guidelines for professionalism in everyday management.

VSM leadership principles


Combining family and work is a key element of what we do at VSM AG. We therefore offer flexible working hours, particularly for those returning to work after parental leave, and have entered into a collaboration with an external service provider who will advise you on how best to combine your job and family. All this tailored to your particular needs.

Lifelong working-time account

The lifelong working-time account offers you the option, for example, of taking a prolonged period of time out of work, structuring your working time flexibly, or retiring early. At VSM we will support you through every stage of your life and adapt to your circumstances.

Company health management

The health of our employees is very important to us. We offer a balanced selection of food in the canteen, ergonomic workstations, various sports programmes in our own VSM sports room, an indoor soccer team and participation in various running events in Hanover. Our occupational health physician holds two consultation sessions a week.

Plant fire brigade

The VSM plant fire brigade was founded on 1st July 1880. It is therefore the oldest plant fire brigade in Hanover. More than 30 VSM employees from all areas of the company ensure that our plant fire brigade will be on standby at all times. Even employees without any prior knowledge can be trained if interested and will be incorporated into the team!

Company restaurant

We offer a varied and balanced selection of meals every day. Our ladies and gentlemen in the company canteen cook fresh meals every day so that you can return to work revitalised and full of energy.
