    Duties

    • Machine operators are found in many different fields of industrial production, but in particular in the metalworking, plastics, pharmaceuticals, food processing, automotive, printing and textiles industries.

Cooperation

Since 2008, school students at the Friedrich-Bayer secondary school in Wuppertal have been able to take advantage of a cooperation arrangement with STAHLWILLE to give them a feeling for potential job offers at the company. STAHLWILLE offers regular guided tours of the factory and work experience programmes.

 

In addition, students in grades 8 and 9 (ages about 14-15) can take part in building project workpieces in STAHLWILLE's training workshops on Lindenallee and participate in training interview techniques. These activities are conducted by STAHLWILLE instructors and accompanied by representatives from the school.
