Working for Schnellecke: Ample room for responsibility
The Schnellecke Group offers numerous apprenticeships and jobs with future prospects at many locations in Germany and around the world for high school and college students, graduates, and people with professional experience.
We look for and employ people with personality. Your professional qualifications do also play a role of course, but what matters most is that you are the right person for us and our corporate philosophy. As a family-owned company, we have clear values and we live them. We give our employees encouragement and the space to realize their ideas. You can take on responsibility quickly. At Schnellecke you will find flat hierarchies, short decision-making paths, and, as many employees attest, a pleasant working environment.
The Schnellecke Group is one of the leading logistics service providers for the automotive industry with an annual turnover of around one billion euros. More than 19,400 employees at over 70 sites on four continents – those are the figures. But much more important is what lies behind them.
For a logistics company, people are the most important productive factor. That is why we pay attention to whether a candidate is right for our company and really identifies with our values.
As a family-owned company, our values and mission statement are not an accessory but put into practice and filled with life every day. This allows our employees to plan their careers in a completely different way. We allow a lot of room for responsibility, and there are fewer guardrails. However, for this we need independent, forward-looking employees who are happy to meet such demands and take advantage of their opportunities.
