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 commercial departments:

  • Purchasing
  • Financial accounting
  • Controlling
  • Order processing
  • Environment and quality management
  • Sales
  • Marketing

You will also spend a few weeks working in product management, as well as production and shipping to provide you with the opportunity to look outside the box and familiarise yourself with different areas of the company. At Hilscher, you will therefore spend your apprenticeship in all departments within the company – variety is guaranteed.

Alongside the apprenticeship at the company, you will also attend the Konrad-Adenauer school in Kriftel that is about a 15 minute drive from our company’s premises. 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 educatio


We are looking for outgoing, bright individuals with a thirst for knowledge, who see their future in a commercial field.


Personal responsibility, teamwork, reliability and meticulousness are fundamental characteristics of all our young trainees. You're motivated to take on new challenges and take pride in helping to find and work towards solutions.


As an aspiring industrial clerk in a high-tech industry, an interest in the latest technology will serve you well.


To be accepted for the apprenticeship, you require a secondary school certificate (Realschulabschluss), preferably with good grades in mathematics, German, physics and English.
