However, you still have the possibility to apply either by post or by mail.

  • Covering letter
  • Full curriculum vitae
  • Last 3 school records

The application portal is open from July of the previous year.

You will receive confirmation of receipt after you have sent your application. You will therefore know that your documentation has definitely reached Handtmann.

Your application documents will then be read personally and considered with respect to suitability by the training team. Therefore it may take a few weeks before you receive a reply. Thank you for your understanding. Even if it may take some time to consider your application, this on no account reflects on your chances of being accepted for the position.

If your application and the requirements of your career aspiration match, we will invite you for a personal interview. This is usually with the respective instructor.

Please refer to the Directions section to find out how to get to our locations.

You will receive a written response to the success of your application in the weeks after the interview. If your application is confirmed, we will send you a trainee contract and further information.

We ask for your patience. There may be several applicants and a decision can only be reached once all the interviews are complete.

Of course you can apply again after an unsuccessful application. It is quite possible that a suitable trainee position will be available at a later date or that a skilled worker position is vacant after your training. We look forward to receiving your application.
