What do you want to do?
As a forward-looking company with a bright future, we can offer you a wide range of career opportunities. Each year, we take on 300 apprentices for our formal vocational training programs at our locations around the world.

We take great pride in our apprentices and always try to offer them jobs once they have completed their formal vocational training programs.
Are you interested in a specific profession and want to find out whether it is right for you? Our individualized internships for school students enable you to get a taste of what working in your preferred field is like. At some locations we offer short, two-day internships that prepare you for specific formal vocational training programs. These enable you to gain key insights into your future work environment before you submit your application.
You can also opt to begin your formal vocational training program directly and become qualified within your dream profession, be it in the technical/skilled trade or the commercial sector. Our training program managers are always on hand to provide our apprentices with expert, reliable guidance and advice.

“Like so many others, I wanted to go into teaching. But because teaching degree programs were so sought after, I ended up looking around for something else and getting a job with a company specializing in large gear units,” explains Britta Mehring. The 26-year-old engineer has been working on the innovative MULTI elevator system for a good six months now and is delighted with her decision to choose a career in technology over a career in schools.
