More Than One-Size-Fits-All Training—Individual Opportunities for Trainees and Students

ZwickRoell's Junior Company (Jufi) 

The Junior Company is an independent division of ZwickRoell, which is run exclusively by trainees and students. Practical learning experience is paramount and manufacturing and sales of self-produced products ensure economic success. Jufi provides trainees a better overview of the overall corporate operating situation, where students learn to independently solve problems and make joint decisions—responsibility and teamwork are key.

Stays abroad and at subsidiaries 

Depending on their course of study, students can complete the practical part of their training at a location abroad. This may be at a European subsidiary, in the US or in Singapore, with many trainees looking forward to this opportunity. They work to deepen their knowledge in a multi-week stay at one of our subsidiaries, for example in Berlin or in Fürstenfeld, Austria. This promotes personal development as well as independence as they find their way in an unfamiliar environment. During this time they learn about a new culture and way of life and develop open minded thinking and language skills.

Exciting Trainee Projects

ZwickRoell trainees work on a number of exciting projects. Recently they designed, built and tested two go-karts. The short video that follows provides an overview of the planning and production, as well as an actual race between the two go-karts— both trainees and instructors had great fun with the entire process. Teamwork is not only important for a successful project, it is an imperative part of everyday life.
