Cool for apprentices: insights and career prospects in an innovative world of work.

Get actively involved rather just looking on from the outside.

Our apprentices are part of the team from day one. During their training, young Oemeta apprentices get to discover all areas of the company and are involved in exciting projects right from the word go.

Even though we’re consummate professionals, Oemeta still cultivates family structures. With us, everyone pulls together. This includes taking care of our youngsters. We promote the individual talents of our apprentices by providing them with practical opportunities and creative leeway. Who says that innovative ideas always have to come from the “old hands”?

Cool future in sight.
