It's not always easy to get started in a professional career straight from university. We make it easier with our trainee program. It gives career starters and graduates the opportunity to get to know BIA from different angles. The focus is on optimal preparation for a future position as a specialist or manager in the BIA Group. During the one to one-and-a-half-year traineeship, you have the opportunity to explore other departments as well. This gives you the opportunity to network at an early stage and to acquire comprehensive technology and product knowledge. At the same time, you find out for yourself whether the desired position fits with your expectations. You will find current vacant trainee positions in our job advertisements.
Trainee positions are regularly offered in the departments of project management (sales, product and moulding tool development, advanced quality planning). In addition, we offer occasional individual trainee programs, e.g. in business areas such as controlling, automation technology, process engineering or production.
12 to 18 months, depending on the department / target position.
All trainees have a target department in which they are placed from the beginning to the end of the trainee period. In addition, activities in adjacent departments are planned for a period of between two and ten weeks.
Whether a foreign assignment is part of the trainee program depends very much on the target position.
Each trainee program operates at the interface between training and work as a lot of practical and theoretical knowledge is taught. In addition, our trainees can take advantage of various complementary training courses (internally and externally) if required.
All trainees are looked after centrally by personnel management. In addition, every trainee has an individual contact person in the target department (trainee mentor) and in the operational departments.
Our trainees are engaged for a limited period and we always train for a target position. So far, we have been able to take on all trainees in permanent employment.
Trainee pay varies according to the qualifications and experience of the applicants but is geared to industry-standard hiring rates for graduates and young professionals. Trainees receive 30 days holiday, holiday pay and a company pension.
