Appren­ti­ce­ship

We are the market leading educator in the water treat­ment sector

Zahnen Technik has been educate young people since 1958. This enor­mous expe­ri­ence as an appren­ti­cing company and the decades of expe­ri­ence in plant construc­tion make Zahnen Technik a top trainer. This is reflected in the outstan­ding rate of over 25% apprentices.

This puts us at the abso­lute top of the field. Our quality-rele­vant struc­tures of in-company appren­ti­ce­ship (e. g. approx. 20 % of our employees have a certi­fi­cate to lead appren­tices), as well as the commit­ment of our highly moti­vated trai­ners have led for years to final grades that are above the national chamber average and regular invi­ta­tions to the IHK Best Party. To increase these results, we have invested in an Inno­va­tion Lab to inter­lock theory and practice.

At Zahnen Technik, you can choose between nine appren­ti­ce­ships, three dual study programs or two combi-appren­ti­ce­ships. By intro­du­cing specia­list and foreman careers, we also offer our employees long-term deve­lo­p­ment prospects after their apprenticeship.

Frequently asked ques­tions about our apprenticeships

The dura­tion of the appren­ti­ce­ships varies from 2 to 3.5 years, depen­ding on the occup­a­tion and school-leaving qualification.

Zahnen Technik has been trai­ning young people since 1958. This enor­mous expe­ri­ence as an appren­ti­cing company and the decades of expe­ri­ence in plant construc­tion make Zahnen Technik a top employer. This is reflected in the outstan­ding appren­ti­ce­ship rate of over 25%.

This puts us at the abso­lute top of the field. Our quality-rele­vant struc­tures of in-company appren­ti­ce­ship (e. g. approx. 20 % of our employees have a certi­fi­cate to lead appren­tices), as well as the commit­ment of our highly moti­vated trai­ners have led for years to final grades that are above the national chamber average and regular invi­ta­tions to the IHK Best Party.

At Zahnen Technik, you can choose between nine appren­ti­ce­ships, three dual study programmes or two comb-appren­ti­ce­ships. By intro­du­cing specia­list and foremen careers, we also offer our employees long-term deve­lo­p­ment prospects after their apprenticeship.

The best time to apply is about a year before the start of the appren­ti­ce­ships — in other words, in the summer of the previous year. Of course, we also accept appli­ca­tions throughout the year.

If you are unsure which trai­ning occup­a­tion is right for you, we recom­mend that you complete an internship in the desired occup­a­tions. Internships are gene­rally possible by arrangement.

As a rule, appren­ti­ce­ship begins between the begin­ning of August and the begin­ning of September. The exact date is always based on the start date for the voca­tional schools.

The first weeks are so-called intro­duc­tory weeks. These take place in our Inno­va­ti­onLab. Here, all new appren­tices of the new year receive a compre­hen­sive intro­duc­tory program toge­ther. After that they move on to the respec­tive departments.

Zahnen Technik will provide regular trai­ning on tech­nical and inter­di­sci­pli­nary topics in its own Inno­va­ti­onLab during the appren­ti­ce­ship. In addi­tion, there is the possi­bi­lity to parti­ci­pate in an English lesson once a week on a volun­tary basis. English lessons are held in small groups and students are assi­gned to a group according to their previous know­ledge. Exam prepa­ra­tion takes place in the inter-company trai­ning centres.

The chances of being taken on are very good, based on the company’s expe­ri­ence and deve­lo­p­ments in the past.

What we offer

We support our employees in secu­ring their reti­re­ment. For this purpose, we offer the possi­bi­lity of subsi­dised deferred compensation.

A joint company party streng­t­hens the team spirit and promotes commu­ni­ca­tion within the staff.
We there­fore tradi­tio­nally hold our Christmas party on the last working day before the Christmas company holi­days. Every two years, the employees orga­nise a Zahnen Technik company outing.

In addi­tion to Christmas and holiday bonuses, there is a personal gift for each employee on birth­days and at Christmas.

The work-life balance and health of our employees is very important to us.
That’s why we offer a back fitness course once a week in the company during the winter months, when sport is some­times neglected.

With the life­time working time accounts, we have found a way to recon­cile the employees‘ wishes for a life-phase-oriented, flexible working time arran­ge­ment with opera­tional concerns. Depen­ding on their current life situa­tion, employees can save up working hours (regular remu­ne­ra­tion compon­ents, remai­ning leave, etc.) and also save up again (sabba­ti­cals, further trai­ning, etc.).

Flat hier­ar­chies are estab­lished in our company. This means that not every employee can have a manage­ment career, and at the same time not every employee wants to take on a manage­ment role. By intro­du­cing specia­list career paths, we offer employees a perspec­tive and alter­na­tive to a manage­ment career, because with incre­a­sing specia­list quali­fi­ca­tions, one can develop into an expert.
The specia­list career paths enable employees to develop their skills in line with requi­re­ments, promote their satis­fac­tion and streng­then their long-term loyalty to the company.

Depen­ding on their career level, employees have an annual trai­ning budget that they can decide freely. The prere­qui­site is that the further trai­ning fits the employee’s job.
In addi­tion, about six times a year, employees do not work on the construc­tion sites on the last Friday of the month. Instead, trai­ning sessions and staff meetings take place. In addi­tion, construc­tion site employees can do in-house errands.

Our employees receive new internet-capable devices, whether smart­phones, PCs or similar, at abso­lutely top condi­tions and out of their gross salary. This way, you save taxes and enjoy tech­nical comfort all in one.

The inter­na­tional orien­ta­tion of our company will increase signi­fi­cantly in the future. To better prepare ourselves for this, the company offers an English commu­ni­ca­tion lesson once a week in small groups for all inte­rested employees.

The company health insurance is a private supple­men­tary health insurance. It covers the extras that the statu­tory health insurance does not pay for. Various bene­fits for teeth, visual aids, preven­tive exami­na­tions, etc. can be claimed.

As a company concerned with resource conser­va­tion, we want to support and promote the shift to e‑mobility.
For example, our employees can use our own e‑charging stations at both of our loca­tions to „fill up on sunshine“. Our e‑charging stations are „fuelled“ with „green“ solar power via photo­vol­taic systems on our roofs.

The Zahnen Technik Inno­va­ti­onLab not only serves as a place for crea­tive freedom, but also as an internal trai­ning and further educa­tion centre. It offers space in the quick and profes­sional induc­tion of new employees as well as the trai­ning of exis­ting employees. At the same time, we also make our premises avail­able to schools, univer­si­ties or compa­nies asso­ciated in partnership.
