Training at Webasto: Practice-Oriented and Forward-Looking

Stockdorf/Munich – 3 September 2018 – At the beginning of the training year, Webasto, one of the 100 largest automotive suppliers worldwide, is welcoming 40 new trainees and twelve students for dual programs in commercial and technical fields throughout Germany. These young people starting out on their careers can expect to receive practice-oriented trainings with a modern employer that offers excellent potential for their future.

The trainees and dual students are fully integrated in their teams, where they rapidly assume responsibility and assist with exciting projects. Webasto is currently expanding its product portfolio in the area of electric mobility, for instance with battery systems and charging solutions. This is resulting in interesting and new areas of training. “Our junior employees are able to actively shape their training”, explains Andrea Bodner, Head of Training at Webasto. “If a trainee wishes to get to know a certain department, we will try our best to accommodate this. We want to foster the interests of these young people, in terms of their future career paths, in the best possible manner.”

Thanks to the international orientation of the company, committed junior employees also have the opportunity to work at Webasto locations outside of Germany. Three- to six-month stays abroad in the USA or the growth market China are particularly popular with students for dual programs.

Even after training, learning does not stop. The automotive supplier constantly promotes the advancement of its employees. Graduates are able to follow up their education by training as business administrators, continuing to study while in employment or completing the Webasto Master Program. Furthermore, the internal training academy also offers all employees a wide range of seminars.

At the "Webasto Career Day", interested students have the opportunity to learn more about the manifold ways to start their careers. The event takes place at the Stockdorf site on 16 November 2018 from 4 pm to 8 pm. Further information is available in the training section of the Webasto website at: www.webasto-career.com
