Electronics technicians for devices and systems (Apprenticeship)

Job description

Electronics technicians (m/f/d) for devices and systems can be found in all electronics departments of an industrial company. All doors are open to you at the end of the apprenticeship from SMD production to final assembly and end testing right through the test field.

The apprenticeship as an electronics technician (m/f/d) for devices and systems is a combined work and study programme and lasts 3.5 years. During this three-and-half-year period apprentices attend the vocational school and put what they have learnt into practice at their training company.

How will the apprenticeship be implemented at our company?

Your apprenticeship starts with us on 1st August. On the induction day, we will inform you about all organisational matters that you will need to follow during your apprenticeship at our company. On this day you will get to know both all our apprentices and your first colleagues.

You will get involved in the day-to-day work on the following days. You will work together with different colleagues in various departments, who will pass on the content of the apprenticeship in step with actual practice and are always willing to listen to you.

At Hilscher, you will get to know all technical production departments: SMD production, assembly, final testing, test field, pre-delivery inspection, shipping, hardware development and EDP. You will also spend a few weeks working in our goods receiving and purchasing departments to provide you with the opportunity to look outside the box and familiarise yourself with different areas within the business. At Hilscher, you will therefore spend your apprenticeship in many different departments within the company – variety is guaranteed.

You will be placed in your specialist department during the final months of your apprenticeship. You will consolidate your knowledge in this area, work independently on a project and thoroughly prepare for part 2 of your final examination. In most cases, the specialist department is the department in which our apprentices would like to work after completing their apprenticeship. We will therefore look for your specialist department together with you and will take your wishes into account.

Alongside training within the company, you will attend the Friedrich-Ebert school in Wiesbaden that is situated about a 30 minute drive away from our company premises and is also easy to reach by public transport. Our apprentices attend vocational school in full-time blocks. This means that the theory and practical phases of your apprenticeship are separate and that you are able to concentrate fully on the theoretic content during the phase in education.

Who is the right fit for us?

We are looking for outgoing, bright individuals with a thirst for knowledge, who see their future in a technical environment, are enthusiastic about the latest technology and are happy to work with their hands. Our junior employees should count initiative, the ability to work well as part of a team, reliability and attention to detail among their personal qualities. You should enjoy new challenges and meet them with motivation, be happy to have a laugh and tackle work with enthusiasm.

To be accepted for the apprenticeship, we expect you to have successfully completed high school with good grades in maths, German, physics and English.

Application process

The application process, for us, includes reviewing your full application, an interview and a recruitment test. The interview is about getting to know you as a person to evaluate whether you are a good fit for our company. Of course, the meeting will also give you the opportunity to get to know us and the general basic conditions of the apprenticeship. As a final step, we will test your knowledge in maths, German, physics and English gained in school, as well as your knowledge of electronic subjects.

What do our apprentices say about an apprenticeship at our company?

“The atmosphere within the company is very good because of the family environment. Alongside the work, events, such as the JP Morgan run and the DeKoBe Football Cup that we can take part in are a great deal of fun. On the whole, I am very grateful to be able to spend my apprenticeship here.”
