Print Solutions

The new training year at Heidelberg began on September 1, 2022.

This year, 128 young women and men started their training or dual study programme at one of the company’s four sites – in Wiesloch-Walldorf, Brandenburg, Amstetten, and Ludwigsburg.

There are currently 12 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 ‘data and process analysis’ option is now also being offered. Moreover, the number of IT specialist training places is 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.

‘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,’ explained Marcus A Wassenberg, CFO and chief human resources officer at Heidelberg. ‘Our junior staff can expect interesting tasks, responsibility, and motivated teams from the very start. They will be able to apply and develop their skills both in our core business and also in new areas of business such as electromobility. What is more, the chances of a permanent position with the company are excellent.’

Across the company’s four sites in Germany, Heidelberg has around 350 trainees and dual programme students, some 75% of these at its largest site in Wiesloch-Walldorf.
