What makes training at SCHUNK special

Whether it's a smartphone, an airplane or a knee joint – our components are often involved in manufacturing. This is because we equip production plants and robotic systems all over the world, where we are known for top quality and high precision. Our customers are also regularly impressed with the completely new technologies we develop ourselves in our CoLabs.

Lots of motivational and fun team spirit

With over 3,700 employees worldwide, including over 200 apprentices and students – there may be a lot of us, but it's certainly not a bunch of nameless faces.

We are regularly recognized as one of the best training companies in the industry.

You can see what SCHUNK has to offer you in terms of training and study opportunities in our digital brochure.

What we offer you

  • Sports and health offers
    Your health is close to our heart. With SCHUNK-Aktiv, we offer you a wide range of sports and health activities to help you tackle your working day in a healthy, relaxed and good mood. Our offer includes a number of perks such as a free gym membership, preventive health programs as well as numerous SCHUNK sports teams that you can join.
  • SCHUNK Academy
    To help you further your education during your training or studies, we support you with innovative e-learning programs and seminars in our SCHUNK Academy.
  • Learning day every 14 days
    Our apprentices and students also get a learning day every two weeks during their working hours. This certainly contributes to the fact that our "Young Talents" are regularly among the best in their class.

  • SCHUNK global & social
    In addition to technical know-how, it is important to us that you can also develop yourself on a personal level. Because self-confidence, courage and emotional awareness are at least as relevant as physics, electronics and business studies. That is why social internships and stays abroad are an integral part of our training, whether as a part of dual studies or specialist training.

  • SCHUNK 4.0
    To get our junior staff fit for Industry 4.0, we integrate networked learning and work activities into everyday working life. These include digital twins or mobile learning in smart factories.

  • High conversion rate
    We hire around 70 apprentices and students per year. Of these, over 95 percent are taken on after successfully completing their exams. That means that the chances are very good that you will be able to join us on a permanent basis after completing your apprenticeship or studies.
