MAN takes on over 800 trainees
Over 800 youths in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, France and Turkey have started their vocational training within the MAN Group, more than in the previous year. The high school graduates will begin their careers at MAN in 61 vocational professions, 47 of which are in technical training disciplines and 14 in commercial ones. The chances of being hired after the traineeship are very high, according to the manufacturer. In order to better inform youths about vocational training opportunities, a Facebook fanpage was created a year ago for German language vocational traineeships in the MAN Group.
Chief Human Resources Officer, Jochen Schumm, said, ‘Vocational training plays a key role in MAN’s ability to compete. We need the best and the most motivated trainees, especially given the looming shortage of skilled workers, in order to continue to be able to secure excellent quality for our products and services.’
