People not only learn specialist knowledge in vocational school, they also get practical experience in applying this specialist knowledge in the company through an apprenticeship. This prepares them particularly well for the demands of the modern working environment. They become very valuable employees for companies of all sizes.

Apprentices are an integral and particularly important part of Siltec’s human resources strategy. “By educating young professionals, we can counteract the consequences of the shortage of skilled workers internally and get colleagues with skills that are precisely tailored to our business,” says Managing Director Sven Riehm.

Every year, the apprenticeships for industrial clerks, industrial mechanics and process mechanics for plastics and rubber technology begin on September 1. These prospective specialists and managers get to know the company and the processes at Siltec at an early stage and are well trained. This allows them to work on activities and tasks independently and quickly experience success.

This year Siltec was again represented at the career information exhibition Lindau-Westallgäu to present our company and our apprenticeship professions. The fair takes place every year alternately in Lindau at Lake Constance and in Lindenberg im Allgäu and is organized by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Swabia.

Prospective graduates and interested parties had the opportunity to learn more about our products and technologies on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at the Lindau School Center. Of course, there was also first-hand information about the professions. Two of our apprenticeship managers, Jessika Prinz and Werner Wegscheider, were on site and took care of the visitors’ questions. In addition, our human resources manager Helmut Schlachter was on hand to give tips on how to apply for a job. In addition to trainees, we are also looking for new colleagues with experience.
