(Marchtrenk, Austria, October 9, 2020) Vocational training and professional development are valued particularly highly at TGW – entirely in accord with our philosophy of "Focusing on People – Learning and Growing". 166 young people are currently working as apprentices at the Upper Austria-based intralogistics specialist. TGW offers them a stable environment in an innovative industry – thereby offering jobs with stability going forward and a wide variety of development opportunities.
TGW offers apprenticeships in Application Development, Design Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Production Engineering, Operational Logistics and Engineering, Industrial Business Management, Mechatronics and Metallurgy. The young specialists rotate between departments, familiarise themselves with various aspects of the job and take over initial responsibility in projects. At the training workshop, they can gain experience in a safe and structured environment under the guidance of experienced trainers.
The apprenticeship is kicked off by a 2-day outdoor workshop that gives apprentices and trainers a chance to get to know each other. During group exercises and teambuilding activities, it becomes evident that mutual respect and trust are the basis for successful cooperation.
"We direct our actions according to the principle of encouraging and challenging. We also build on individual strengths and offer many development opportunities for learning and growing," says Peter Knoll, Chief Financial Officer at TGW Mechanics. "In return, we expect dedication and high achievement in the classroom and the workplace." An apprenticeship offers outstanding future opportunities. This is also underscored by the fact that many past apprentices have since gone on to take management roles at TGW.
TGW offers the option of an apprenticeship with Austrian Matura (school leaving examination) and a diverse range of professional development opportunities in addition to training in the specialised departments. These opportunities include everything from language classes to personal development and even tips for healthy eating.
Apprentices also have the opportunity to gain international experience during a TGW project in Europe, China or the USA. Monthly performance-based bonuses serve as an additional incentive for achievement. The Marchtrenk and Wels locations also have in-house fitness centres and employee restaurants available.
As a foundation-owned company, TGW is a stable and reliable employer. The intralogistics specialist can never be sold. Two-thirds of profits stay in the company and are reinvested – in our employees, our infrastructure and the innovations of tomorrow. At least ten percent of profits go to charitable projects of the Future Wings foundation. These projects focus on comprehensive personal development of children and young people.
