Every year Heidelberg offers training courses at the company’s four sites in Wiesloch-Walldorf, Brandenburg, Amstetten and Ludwigsburg commencing in September. There are currently twelve professions on offer, together with a whole host of technical, business and interdisciplinary courses. With its high apprenticeship training rate, the company is preventing a shortage of skilled workers, while also helping to lessen the challenges associated with demographic change.
Production-related specialisations such as mechatronics engineer, industrial engineer and electronics engineer account for the majority of training professions, and these trainees are primarily deployed in the company’s core business. The IT specialist traineeship is also gaining ever greater weight. Besides the long-established ‘Application development’ specialisation, a new ‘Data and process analysis’ option is now also being offered with the number of IT specialist training places increasing from five to at least six. This indicates the growing importance of IT-related professions and courses resulting from the company’s digital transformation.
Another exciting career option with excellent prospects for the future is the mechatronics service engineer traineeship. The trainees also complete additional modules, during which they are prepared for call-outs to customers in Germany and around the world from the very beginning. As early as their third year of training, they accompany experienced service engineers to print shops.
“With our exceptional training, which has won numerous awards from external institutes, we are looking to overcome the future challenges associated with digital transformation and demographic change, while also preventing a shortage of skilled workers,” explains Marcus A. Wassenberg, CFO and Chief Human Resources Officer at Heidelberg.
The application phase for training/courses starting in September 2023 is already in full swing. Full details of occupational training at Heidelberg and the careers portal can be found on the company’s website.
