Vocational Training Programs

Are you interested in learning a trade in an international company that is playing an active role in shaping fast-growing markets? Do you have good grades and can work independently and in a disciplined manner? Are you reliable, dedicated, and able to work well in a team? Then Manz AG is the right place to complete a vocational training program.

During your training program, which will last between 2.5 and 3.5 years, you can expect to work on challenging and interesting assignments in a variety of areas of the company, where you will be able to make direct use of the theoretical knowledge you gain in real working-life applications.

Tina s. (Business Vocational Training Program) and Kevin S. (Industrial Vocational Training Program):


Why did you select Manz when looking for a suitable company to complete a vocational training program?

 

Tina:

“Manz’s education brochure was very appealing, so I looked for more information about the company. The various fields of business Manz is involved in, and the fact that Manz operates internationally, aroused my interest. They were the reasons I finally chose Manz."

 Kevin:

“I had already made an internship at Manz that I liked very much. So it was easy for me to decide for Manz.”

Are you happy with the training program? What is special about completing a vocational training program at Manz?


Tina:
 

“Yes, I’m satisfied with the training at Manz, because they gave me a lot of responsibility right from the beginning. I get a wide variety of assignments to do on my own, but I always get help when I have questions or difficulties. Besides that, the training is very diverse. During the practical phases, I go through a lot of specialized departments and get oriented and integrated into all the processes.”

Kevin:

“I am also extremely happy with the program. The quality of the vocational training program at Manz is extremely high, both on a technical and interpersonal level. They are responsive to each trainee’s individual learning ability – and if you are having trouble, you can always find a coworker to help you out. The company puts a lot of trust in its trainees, and this promotes a positive working atmosphere and gives trainees the confidence to contribute their own ideas and work independently.”

What part of the training program do you have particularly fond memories of?


Tina:

“In September, at the beginning of the program, I was allowed to organize and run the orientation week for new trainees. Through various events and activities, the new trainees get to know each other, as well as Manz as a company. Preparing and running that week involved a lot of different activities and was a lot of fun.”

Kevin:

"My colleagues and I had to carry out a project with a school class. We defined the learning content which we teached the younger students – that was fun!"
