For those who can, starting their professional life with a commercial apprenticeship ensures a broad basis of knowledge from the very beginning. During training, you get to know every area of a company from purchasing raw materials and other parts needed for production as well as marketing and sales. You’ll also gain experience in disciplines such as accounting, order processing and human resources. This multidisciplinary approach to education allows you to gain a broad understanding of how the departments at Hailo function and interact.
During training, it will quickly become clear where your strengths and passions lie and which area is the most fun for you to work in. In addition to the practical training within the company, you’ll also gain theory-based knowledge at the commercial vocational school in Dillenburg.
You can start with an excellent secondary school leaving certificate or A-levels. Grades in German, mathematics and English are particularly important. Proficiency in basic computer skills is an additional plus.
If everyone contributes using their strengths, then we can get ahead together. Teamwork is the most important factor for us!
The training period normally lasts for three years. However, if you stand out with excellent grades, you can take the exams at the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) after 2.5 years.
If your desire to learn has not diminished after the apprenticeship, you can take a further training course to become a specialist in business administration or business management. This qualification also allows you to study at a technical college in order to advance the education that you started with us at Hailo.
