Training with a future at BINDER

May 2015 Trainer explains tool to trainee

BINDER presents operational training and continuing education opportunities at the region's largest training fair.



Tuttlingen, 22/05/2015 – Jobs for Future, the largest training and career fair in the region, opened its doors from March 12 to 14 in Villingen-Schwenningen with a record 271 exhibitors. Jobs for Future offers numerous opportunities, from initial orientation to the job market through to reorientation in one's professional life. In addition the fair has become established as a cross-regional networking clearinghouse. For years BINDER has been engaged in operational training and continuing education and this year was again represented with a booth at Jobs for Future. Training manager Timo Haag and a team of apprentices provided information about career opportunities at the company's headquarters in Tuttlingen or at any of the company's numerous international offices. Secondary students, university students and job seekers had the opportunity to talk directly with the apprentices about the many training possibilities at BINDER in different administrative and technical careers as well as in dual technical programs of study. When it comes to young talent, BINDER has looked inward for years. The attractive career opportunities are also reflected in the number of apprentices, which increases every year. Their numbers have more than doubled in the last five years alone. "Many young people who stopped by were earnest about learning more about the various career opportunities with us," says Timo Haag happily. "We had several very interesting and promising conversations with potential applicants." The apprentices also generated enthusiasm with a short video of their two-day team training. It was clear from the video that team building, team spirit and above all a lot of fun at work are writ large among the trainees.
