Record number of Bechtle career starters

  • 244 new trainees and students starting out
  • IT traineeships in high demand
  • New all-time high number of vocational trainees at Bechtle

Neckarsulm, 9 September 2021 – 2021 sees 244 new trainees and students starting their careers at Bechtle, as new hires reach an all-time high. The IT company currently has 710 young people training for a total of twelve technical and commercial professions, with 634 trainees and students spread out across Bechtle’s German locations. The ratio of trainees in Germany currently lies at about 7%—a figure Bechtle aims to increase to 10% by 2030.

“Providing training is both necessary and logical—it’s an investment in the future with the aim of combating a lack of specialists while sustaining our success. We are, therefore, all the more pleased to see how popular our traineeships are and that we have been able to attract more young talent for these positions than ever before,” says Dr Thomas Olemotz, CEO, Bechtle AG.

Of the 710 young people who have applied, 376 trainees have chosen a technical and 230 a commercial path, with the split being 40 to 64 for dual-study programmes.

Bechtle offers training in a total of twelve technical and commercial professions, including in information technology, wholesale and foreign trade, and consulting. In conjunction with cooperative state universities, Bechtle students are currently reading for degrees in a total of 24 different courses, including business administration, business informatics and online media.

Extensive trainee programme

In order to help its newest employees get off to a roaring start, Bechtle holds an introductory event at Bechtle Platz 1. Those attending are introduced to the Group’s headquarters with all of its service units, receive insights into the company’s history and culture and get to network with their peers from the different Bechtle locations. During their training, the trainees will be able to benefit from bespoke seminars as well as exam preparation courses, while a mentoring programme provides advice and support every step of the way.

Traineeships available for 2022

There will be several opportunities available for Autumn 2022, both for trainees and students. Bechtle will list all its vacancies, information concerning training and cooperative study programmes as well as application information on its newly updated career page in August.
