Vocational training

Well trained and highly motivated

Swiss Post fosters young talent and is one of the biggest training companies in Switzerland. In 2017, 734 apprentices successfully completed their basic vocational training and, in doing so, have made the leap into the working world. Around a third of them attained an overall grade of 5.0 or above, with 9.3 percent even achieving a grade of 5.3 or higher. More than 300 of the apprenticeship graduates can continue to be employed by Swiss Post.

This summer, the apprentices started their training in the fields of ICT, logistics, retail, commercial professions and maintenance. Swiss Post offers around 2,000 apprenticeship places in 13 career areas, developing the range on offer according to market requirements and making a targeted investment in ICT specialists. For example, a new apprenticeship to become an ICT specialist will be offered for the first time in the 2018 training year. In addition, the Bachelor’s degree with integrated practical training (PiBS) in information technology is also entering its third year.
