Training @ edding

We are a company that is passionate about training. Amongst other things, our trainees can expect a structured training plan in order to become familiar with all of the company's departments (and, where necessary, our foreign companies), fixed contacts both within and outside their respective departments, regular afternoon events for trainees, meet-and-greets with the management board, as well as an excellent working atmosphere with international flair. A level of engagement that has also impressed the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK), who honoured us in 2015 with the IHK training award.

Per Ledermann, our Managing Director, sums it up: "Even our youngest staff already have ink running through their veins. We don't just want to empower our trainees from a technical perspective, we also want to give them the opportunity to further develop themselves from a personal perspective, to take on responsibility at an early stage and to introduce their own ideas."
