IMA SCHELLING: seven apprenticeship professions with future potential

Every year, around a dozen apprentices – men as well as women – start their career in the constantly growing IMA SCHELLING factory in Vorarlberg. To increase your chances it is worth applying early! In a modern environment where camaraderie is the norm, you can learn one of seven future-oriented technical apprenticeship professions with an apprenticeship period up to four years (warehousing & logistics, industrial & systems engineering, mechanical engineering, machining technology, design). A well-equipped company-owned apprenticeship workshop forms the basis of the apprenticeship training. A company apprenticeship manager and a separate apprenticeship trainer for each profession ensure professional support. All colleagues, including apprentices and their line managers, who in most cases communicate in German, can use the more informal way of speaking by using “du” (familiar “you”) instead of “Sie” (formal “you”) – this lays the foundation for an open-minded work culture.

IMA SCHELLING has been one of Austria's best companies that offer apprenticeships for many years. The apprenticeship focuses on practical training and co-working. Already in the second year, apprentices take part in projects and can contribute their own new ideas. Therefore, each apprentice is assigned a training officer who can guide you through any issues you have at work or at school. Due to the global activities of the company, even working abroad is possible from the third year onwards.
A career in a modern technical profession offers promising career opportunities for young apprentices. In fact, today's Head of IMA SCHELLING in England started his career as an apprentice at IMA SCHELLING. Anyone who wants to learn more can get to know IMA SCHELLING better at one of our 'get-acquainted' meetings.
