When the fascination for technology becomes a profession


At the start of the 2022 apprenticeship year, the Liebherr Group welcomed nearly 600 apprentices and dual students at its sites in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France. For the young professionals in technical and commercial fields, the exciting path into professional life now begins.

Liebherr has a tradition of dedicating the first few days of training to getting to know each other. Accordingly, a colourful programme awaited the new colleagues. In seminars and project work, they learned what they will need for their future day-to-day work at Liebherr – from work processes to the tasks in their respective apprenticeships to how to get to the canteen. Tours of the production sites together with the local training teams were, of course, part of the welcome weeks. The Liebherr companies had prepared a supporting programme to ensure that there was plenty of fun to be had. Games, outdoor activities and barbecues gave the new Liebherr employees a chance to get to know each other and celebrate their start in professional life together. “Joining such a big company right after school is really exciting. In the first week, we learned a lot about Liebherr and made friends in the process. I am now looking forward to my new tasks and am excited about what I will learn,” says one of the trainees after the first week.

The quality of training has a very high priority at Liebherr. Here, vocational training not only includes diverse projects and individual support for all apprentices and dual students. The close linking of theoretical knowledge with practical know-how is also an integral part of the everyday learning curve. In this way, the skilled workers of tomorrow are being trained today.

For Liebherr as a family company, long-term success, sustainable development, stability and reliability matter. The almost 50,000 employees strive together to inspire their customers with innovations and visionary technologies.
