Why Hanwha Q CELLS?

We are creating the future of solar energy. Therefore, we are looking for a variety of personalities from diverse disciplines of various ages.

That’s why Hanwha Q CELLS!

Freedom of design. Versatility of tasks. International working atmosphere. There are many
good reasons for you to join Hanwha Q CELLS. The first reason is you. Because at
Hanwha Q CELLS you live your ideas.

Hanwha Q CELLS is among the world's leading solar companies and offers the entire spectrum of photovoltaic solutions, ranging from solar cells and modules, to solar power plants. In October 2012, Q CELLS was acquired by the South Korean Hanwha Group (2011: turnover 25 billion euro, assets of 67 billion euro). The strengths of Q CELLS in terms of quality, innovation and product performance align exceptionally well with the financial resources, the expertise in manufacturing and the global customer base of the Hanwha Group, hence creating a new force in the PV industry. The products by Hanwha Q CELLS will be developed and manufactured at the headquarters in Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Germany. In addition, the company has its own production plant in Malaysia. With a workforce of over 1,225, Hanwha Q CELLS brings progress to the development of solar technologies, pursuing the goal of rapidly and sustainably cutting the cost for photovoltaic systems and thus enhancing the competitiveness of solar power.

We want to make the future from solar energy. For this great mission we are looking for the most varied of characters: qualified employees of completely differing subject fields and various ages. Take responsibility with us: today it's your idea, tomorrow technical innovation, the day after it's part of an everyday future worth living. Get to know a forward-looking employer in Hanwha Q CELLS.


The future of energy

Photovoltaics stands for the clean energy supply of the future. It is our target to lead clean energy production to continuous success. We can achieve this if our customers generate secure long-term yields from our solutions. Whether we are developing customer-orientated financing concepts, working on the increased performance of solar cells or developing maintenance-free facilities: at Hanwha Q CELLS we turn ideas into productive, customer-oriented photovoltaic solutions on a daily basis – and, in the long-term, we create an environment worth living in. At Hanwha Q CELLS, this great task is no dusty doctrine on a piece of paper, but the fundamental motivation of our employees.


In-house research centre

More than 200 scientists and engineers work in the Hanwha Q CELLS research centre on developing our technology as quickly as possible. Our target: to make photovoltaics more affordable and therefore more competitive. The close interlocking of research, development and production in the Solar Valley, Thalheim enables Hanwha Q CELLS to quickly transfer innovations to mass production. This secures our technological pole position in the photovoltaics industry.

Our current activities include projects designed to raise efficiency and cut costs. We develop solar cells from inexpensive UMG (upgraded metallurgical) silicon. And we are working on ultra-high efficiency cells, back-contact solar cells, and the improved passivation and contacting of mono- and polycrystalline solar cells. Our findings are directly translated into production – for and with our partners.

One successful example of this ongoing basic research is new standards for solar cells that wouldn't exist without us. Developing new cell concepts is one of Hanwha Q CELLS' hallmarks. We work hard to increase throughput, optimise formats, improve quality, reduce the consumption of resources, and boost efficiency.

Strict quality control is an integral part of production – to ensure we meet our customers' high requirements. The advances made at Hanwha Q CELLS benefit everyone: our company, the environment – and of course our partners.

You get what you need

We have achieved a lot, but that’s not enough. We are backing motivated employees that want to change something and who take the initiative.


Personnel development at Hanwha Q CELLS

Our integration process

New starters at a company usually have many questions. How to get to the canteen or the shuttle timetable are quickly explained. Other questions are more complicated: where do we come from? Where are we today? Where do we want to go?

Our management also supports the introduction process. They create an introduction plan, explain the most important guidelines in the workplace and appoint a mentor for the new employee. They are at hand for the first six months, answering questions, explaining processes and giving tips. Thus you quickly become a real member of the Hanwha Q CELLS world.


The Hanwha Q CELLS Training center

We develop the ambitions of our employees. Dynamic market requirements and new forms of work set us new challenges on a daily basis. Our program of in-house developed further training programs help our employees to successfully overcome these changes. This means we strengthen our own competitiveness, secure long-term competitive advantages that are hard to imitate, enhance our internal know-how and promote individual development opportunities.

HERQULES

Our employees should always feel at ease. At our headquarter, we have the programmes and courses of our HERQULES health service:

  • Health check (with the company doctor or with external experts)
  • Health seminars on topics such as nutrition and coping with stress
  • ‘Fit for Future’, our programme for trainees
  • Massage Services by qualified employees of a physiotherapy practice from Thalheim.

Salary

Of course, there will also be an attractive salary: Hanwha Q CELLS uses the Global Grading – an internationally oriented, standardised remuneration system. Every grade is based on a salary level that is oriented on appropriate market wages and salaries. In each of the various remuneration groups there is a starting salary and numerous salary increase possibilities.

Kindergarten

At the end of 2010, the city of Sandersforf-Brehna and Hanwha Q CELLS inaugurated the “Glückspilz” day-care centre. The new day-care centre was sophisticatedly and lovingly designed both inside and out. Children have a great number of opportunities to play, learn and experiment. There is a children’s kitchen, a “mudroom” and much more. A significant part of the pedagogical concept is, amongst others, integration. As such, the entire installation has been equipped for the disabled. Every group room has a separate terrace that leads to a large and attractively designed garden. Full day catering will guarantee a balanced and healthy diet.

The new installation combined two significant aspects of childcare. Children need a loving, appealing and supportive environment while parents need a reliable and competent team of educators and adequate care hours. Both aspects were considered in the concept from the beginning. So, for example, the opening hours are adapted to the needs of the shift operation at Hanwha Q CELLS.

As a regional solar company, we supplied the 21 KW photovoltaic system installed on the roof. The power produced is fed directly into the public grid.

Shuttle service

A shuttle service from and to the Bitterfeld-Wolfen train stations provides convenience throughout the working day. This means that our headquarters in the Solar Valley can be reached by rail, thus ensuring convenience and eco-friendliness, including for employees living further afield, such as in Leipzig, Halle, Dessau, Berlin or Dresden.

canteen

We're delighted that our canteen has been awarded the JOB & FIT certificate by the DGE German Nutrition Society. This certificate is presented to canteens which have been audited and found to meet high quality standards in terms of foodstuffs, meal planning and preparation, and the atmosphere in the company restaurant. This service is available to our employees 7-19 clock and is subsidized by us.
