Apprenticeships with passion at SKIDATA

Apprentices at SKIDATA enjoy comprehensive training that goes far beyond the dual vocational training system. In-house training courses at SKIDATA give these future professionals comprehensive know-how for an international career. SKIDATA surprises its apprentices with training on a level playing field and gives young professionals the chance not only to put their skills to use from the very beginning, but to prove them as well: just as they did at the EuroSkills 2016 vocational skills competition in Gothenburg, Sweden, for example.

SKIDATA apprentice Pascal – state champion in electronics – proudly represented the Austrian team at EuroSkills 2016 in December. With 14 medals, this Austrian rookie racked up his third win in a row at the competition. „It was a great experience to take part in this competition among 500 apprentices from all over Europe and to meet other young people who are pursuing their profession with as much passion as I am,“ said Pascal, who was impressed by the event.

Apprenticeships at SKIDATA: entry to a career with a passion

It is this passion for their career that SKIDATA wants to give all apprentices. Motivation and recognition, personal freedom and career opportunities, as well as respectful teamwork characterize career training at SKIDATA. This is a basis that strengthens the joy of learning and passion for their vocation. At the moment, around 20 trainees are being trained in seven various skilled trades: electronics, media design, mechatronics, information technologies technician, information technologies computer specialist, office administration and operating logistics clerk.

Apprenticeships with added value: SKIDATA training for apprentices and trainers

At SKIDATA trainees receive excellent professional training in which all apprentices support each other. More senior apprentices pass on their knowledge to junior apprentices. In addition to dual vocational training, there is in-company training in personal development for apprentices, as well as for trainers. Because in the world of work, you need more than just your technical knowledge. For this reason, SKIDATA apprentice and trainer development courses teach soft skills in the areas of communication, time management and motivation.

A year rich in variety at SKIDATA

A year rich in variety at SKIDATA

Stagnation? Unthinkable for SKIDATA, a leader in access solution innovations! This past year was full of surprises in many areas and the company convinced with its constant growth. Among other milestones, SKIDATA celebrated the opening of two new locations.

New subsidiaries in Dubai and Mexico, additional international growth in the US

Since its founding in 1977, SKIDATA has been characterized by its stable growth and has had an international focus from early on. International markets are better served with our branches and partner companies and customers benefit from faster support on-site. The proximity makes both the coordination with customers and service considerably easier. In 2016 the SKIDATA network grew with two new locations: Dubai and Mexico.

Business in the US was also marked with especially large growth in 2016. SKIDATA continues to pick up speed in the US through company acquisitions and the implementation of major projects, including equipping over 30 parking garages in San Francisco and ten parking garages with over 6,000 parking spaces in the city of Miami Beach.

2016’s major event: European Championship in France

When Europe’s soccer elite gather for an extra special tournament, SKIDATA is also a big player. A total of four European Championship stadiums in France used SKIDATA access solutions, allowing 630,000 fans to quickly and safely enter the stadiums through SKIDATA access systems. Operators of stadiums, convention centers and amusement parks around the world rely on access technology from SKIDATA and a variety of our installations can even be found on every continent.

Company initiatives encourage innovation

In keeping with our „Setting Trends“ corporate value, SKIDATA continuously introduces more initiatives that promote the company’s innovative spirit. The company recognized long ago that in order to produce innovations, it needs an innovation-promoting work environment with a certain amount of freedom. Events such as the three-day „Innovathon“ give employees the opportunity to concentrate 100% on creating new ideas.

Career fairs and exciting insights for IT rookies

In addition to numerous career fairs in which SKIDATA participated as both an employer and a training company, the company also provided the opportunity to take a look at the everyday work of staff at our headquarters in Grödig, Austria. As part of our Summer IT Weeks, IT juniors were treated to an exciting day with plenty of insights into the technology behind our innovative access solutions. Many young men and women used their summer vacation to learn more about careers, as well as professional and training opportunities in the IT sector.

More than 30 young people took the opportunity to gain practical experience in various SKIDATA departments in 2016. Ever more young women are completing internships with our innovative company – this year, nearly half of our interns were female and many of them worked in technical areas. Increasing the appeal of careers in technology for women is an important matter to SKIDATA. For this reason, the company regularly supports initiatives and events geared at getting more women into technology. Events such as our annual Girls‘ Day are a great opportunity for young women interested in technology to get to know more about various technical careers.

connecticum job fair

Get to know employers of all sizes and industries at connecticum

Because of the change to bachelor and master, students have increasingly less time to gain valuable hands-on insights in different companies for their future professional life. At connecticum, one can get an overview of different employers and their philosophies in a very short period of time.
From May 6 to 9, 2014 interested students have the opportunity to get to know numerous employers personally. About 400 renowned employers from Germany, Europe and Asia of all sizes and industries introduce themselves at connecticum in Berlin. At fair booths, in company presentations, DialogEvents and one-on-one interviews students, graduates and young professionals from Germany and abroad can gather information about the various companies, their respective job opportunities and perspectives.

From big players and hidden champions to innovative SMEs and young and successful start-ups – connecticum offers the full range of exciting employers for students and graduates. As Germany’s major career and recruitment fair, in the year 2014 connecticum takes place for the 12th time. In the hangars of the Airport Berlin-Tempelhof, young academics can talk about their career opportunities with potential employers. The company representatives from human resources and specialist departments are glad to give an overview on present and future job perspectives.

Within the scope of connecticum, students and graduates can discover their employer of choice or address them specifically, test their own appearance and „market value“, converse loosely or apply to concrete job offers with interviews in individual interview rooms or they can just have a look around. The impressions gained, tips on study and career planning and personal contacts can be used wisely for future applications. Students of all semesters, graduates and young professionals up to seven years after graduation are invited to connecticum. The free info package for connecticum 2014 with information and the online ticket to the job fair is availabe here: http://www.connecticum.de/job-fair-info-package
