Personnel development and training

Your professional and personal development is important to us. If you want to set global standards with innovative products, maximum precision and quality, you need the right equipment. Only those who are perfectly "fit" on a professional and personal level can think outside the box to see the things that can always be improved. And that is precisely our goal. Since everybody is different, there is no single career path at SCHUNK. We plan and design your development together to suit you as an individual – with clear targets and agreements from the very start.

SCHUNK Academy

In its modern training facilities, SCHUNK experts and external lecturers regularly impart important specialist knowledge for the various areas. Top quality is also what we expect at our seminars. The courses provided by the SCHUNK Academy are open to all SCHUNK employees and can be taken in consultation with supervisors. From product training to work safety, and quality management courses to IT and language training.

SCHUNK training centers

You learn a lot "on the job" at SCHUNK – because all colleagues like to share their knowledge and support each other. That is the SCHUNK philosophy. Those who are interested in further development not only have to be able to "do it" but also have to understand the technologies, principles and background behind their work. That is why we have two training centers equipped with modern machines, structures similar to our production department with an electronics laboratory and training rooms in which we teach our young talent the theoretical and practical expertise to do more than just a good job at SCHUNK.

We support development – tailored to individuals!

Do you want to make more out of yourself? We offer you the possibility to do so. For example, with your preparation for instructor's license or electrician exams with evening and weekend courses lasting several months. With flexible working hours and other measures, we make it possible for employees to continue their education while working, such as earning a master's or technician's degree or completing a course of study. Just talk to us!

Career at SCHUNK

Careers at SCHUNK rarely follow a straight line. There is no fixed plan you have to follow. With your commitment and performance, you decide for yourself the course your career path will take with us. The more you bring to the table and the more you trust yourself, the more you can achieve, and often in the fast lane. Because with us, even "newcomers" take on positions of responsibility after a short time – even at the upper management levels.

Regular target agreements and feedback meetings with your line manager will ensure that you know exactly where you stand, what strengths you should exploit and which points you can work on. We support you on an individual level with coaching, training and seminars with stays abroad, project tasks and much more. You can achieve a lot at SCHUNK, perhaps even more than you can imagine today.
