I am interested in applying for an apprenticeship. Does the HABAU GROUP have open days or similar introductory opportunities?

Across almost all of our locations in Austria, individuals interested in starting an apprenticeship are able to come and experience a taster session in our respective companies before joining the programme. Send an email to karriere@habaugroup.com to arrange an appointment to take a look behind the scenes in the various departments and meet the HABAU GROUP in person.

PPS Pipeline Systems offers voluntary internships and mandatory work placements. They also have open days.

What formal approval documents do I need for a taster session in Austria?

We either a need an approval document within the context of a school career orientation programme, an Employment Service Austria (AMS) approval document for individuals seeking an apprenticeship, an approval document for inter-company training or an internship agreement. The length of the taster session is decided by the training institution, but it should last at least two days. Pupils in Germany are given a letter by their school, which we then approve as the relevant training body.

Are you still accepting applications during the Covid19 pandemic?

Yes, we are still looking for motivated employees – even during the pandemic.

How does the onboarding process for new employees in Austria and Germany work?

We organise several welcome days throughout the year for all new employees of the Austrian HABAU GROUP companies. These days give you the opportunity to meet the team at our head office, the management teams of our Group companies, as well as our CEO and CFO. To make it easier for you to hit the ground running, we’ll soon be introducing a mentorship programme which allocates an experienced employee to mentor a new employee. We also believe in the importance of regular 1-1s.
New PPS Pipeline Systems employees receive an individual induction plan based on their respective position and department. On your first day at work, you’ll be introduced to the company and your colleagues, you’ll attend a safety briefing, giving you an initial impression of our processes in this area, and will be given all the necessary work materials.
