Excellent support and good reward

During the entire apprenticeship period, experienced specialists will help you learn your trade and improve your methodical, personal and social skills. We value employees who can work independently and we place the necessary trust in you to do it. Motivation and the way we treat each other are important to us as part of our firmly established, appreciative corporate culture. We count on your personal commitment and your qualities as a team player. This is why we generously reward good social conduct and excellent performance on completing the apprenticeship – the better the grades, the higher the extra bonus. We are happy to employ qualified and sociable young people in our company after their apprenticeship.

Careful work for high-tech products

As a commercial enterprise in the industrial sector, we sell high-tech products and components for industrial automation. This means our products are not just services, but physically tangible technical products. We have a very wide range of mechanical and electronic products, for example from the fields of Pneumatics, Fluid technology, Motion technology, Sensor technology and Control technology. Ultimately, our products are used in many markets with stringent requirements, for example in plants and machinery, in medical and building technology and in the transport sector. In order to guarantee the utmost quality that is necessary for these applications, we always have to work very carefully and reliably – regardless of what job we are doing.

Voices of our apprentices

Eat fresh and healthy for half price

Our team at the staff canteen keep us fuelled with healthy meals. Thanks to generous subsidies from the company, our apprentices only pay half of what is already a very attractive price.

More free time than elsewhere

With a 40-hour week and 6 weeks’ annual holiday, our apprentices have more free time than many others. Up to another week off is available by working the hours in advance. You also enjoy flexible working hours during your apprenticeship.

There are many ways to get to Bachofen

Whether athletically, individually or by public transport – it’s up to you how you get here, and we offer modern changing rooms with showers, bike racks in the underground car park, our own petrol station and free parking spaces for cars and motorbikes, as well as excellent train connections with only a 10-minute walk from the station, and a bus stop just around the corner.

Modern workplaces and IT infrastructure

We want you to feel good at work, which is why our state-of-the art workplaces are ergonomically furnished in spacious, modern rooms, with adjustable desks where you can work sitting or standing as you choose. We also offer top-level digital work equipment, with advanced hardware as well as the latest practical software solutions, such as our clear and transparent business intelligence tool and our intuitive ERP system. If you don’t own your own laptop for vocational school, we’ll provide you with one, including IT support.

We pay for textbooks and inter-company courses

We pay for the textbooks that you need in vocational school. We also assume all costs for your mandatory inter-company courses, such as travel expenses, meals, support and, if necessary, accommodation.

Personal contacts – in everyday work and on special occasions

We value personal contacts across all hierarchical levels – including with our apprentices. We cultivate these contacts at mealtimes, on departmental outings, at the annual large company party, at anniversary celebrations, joint sports events or simply over a drink after work. The annual excursion for apprentices is another great opportunity to get to know each other even better.

First-class insurance and healthcare

Bachofen pays the full premiums for accident insurance and daily sickness allowance for its employees, instead of burdening them with a large part of it, as is customary elsewhere. Regardless when and where you have to fall back on your accident insurance – thanks to additional insurance you are even privately insured for non-occupational accidents anywhere in the world.
