No matter how you arrive at Kalle – as an apprentice or skilled technician, a recent graduate or experienced professional – our goal is to help you achieve your full potential.
Each year, more than 50 apprentices begin their careers at the Kalle-Albert training center. The teaching staff have direct links to the companies in the Kalle-Albert Industrial Park and provide real-world, up-to-the-minute training.
Kalle offers apprenticeships for the following occupations:
Industrial management assistant
Apprentices are introduced to the full range of commercial administration tasks, moving to a new department every three to four months. Along the way, they acquire a good understanding of how the entire organization works: from receipt of orders and communication with customers through to procurement of raw materials and the final billing process in accounts. Having gained a detailed insight into each department, the apprentices are then ready to decide where they wish to specialize.
Production specialist (chemistry)
A production specialist (chemistry) has an in-depth understanding of the chemical processes used in the production of Kalle products. The first stage in the apprenticeship focuses on the theory behind these processes. The next examines how the chemical reactions are used in the production line. Whether the process involves polymers or natural fibers, the role of a production specialist (chemistry) is to ensure that production runs smoothly. Apprentices learn how to identify potential problems and resolve them.
Kalle is always on the lookout for skilled technicians with work experience in the chemical and plastics sector, e.g. chemical technicians and production specialists. Even if there are no suitable vacancies at present, please feel free to submit your CV and a covering letter.
We can also offer opportunities for applicants who do not have a relevant qualification. If you would like to pursue a career with Kalle and meet our criteria, we will be happy to provide you with free in-service training.
From management positions and R&D to commercial roles, degree-level professionals can look forward to an international working environment with the opportunity to help shape our continued expansion worldwide. Follow in the footsteps of the trailblazers and pioneers who have contributed to our success over the past 150-plus years. We will also provide you with customized training and development opportunities to help you achieve your personal goals.
