From apprentice to engineer: ZKW is searching for bright minds
As a specialist in premium lighting systems, and as one of the region’s largest employers, ZKW is always looking for employees. The company’s growth and expansion at its locations, in particular, require additional personnel. ZKW currently has vacant positions at all of its locations in a variety of departments – such as in the areas of Lighting Technology, Electronics, Design, Simulation, Supply Chain Management, Quality and IT. The company offers not only technical jobs, but also internships and apprenticeships. “We offer a dynamic working environment in the international automotive industry, as well as the possibility to take on responsibility in new positions and to further develop your skills” explains Oliver Schubert, CEO of ZKW Group GmbH.
Diverse opportunities for advancement and development
Last year, the Wieselburg lighting system specialist, with roughly 10,000 employees, generated total global revenues of over 1.34-billion euros. All signs point to ongoing growth in 2019 as well, and the order books for the next few years are already full. In addition, ZKW is working intensively to develop new solutions in exterior lighting and in preparation for autonomous driving. “We are always looking for additions to our workforce. As part of our motto: ‘Bright Minds, Bright Lights,’ we try to attract bright employees who want to benefit from attractive opportunities for advancement in an international company. With a total of eight locations, we offer diverse career opportunities” explains Oliver Schubert.
