The right decision: working for the Thommen Group

Are you looking for a new professional challenge? Do you want to make a difference at a dynamic company? Welcome to the Thommen Group!

The Thommen Group – one of the leading Swiss recycling groups with foreign sites in Germany, Belgium and Italy – offers a broad range of jobs and career options.

We also offer numerous interesting training opportunities at our own in-house Thommen Academy. We also cooperate with first-class external bodies which provide training in specialist skills, methods and management, thus ensuring an optimal transfer of both theory and practical skills.

We are looking for highly motivated talented people who share our passion for recycling and we look forward to receiving your application through our vacancies page.

Thommen is offering apprenticeship positions for the professions EFZ Commercial Clerk, profile E or M, and for recycling specialists at all 10 locations in Switzerland. You can also find details concerning the vacant apprenticeships on our vacancies page or on Yousty.

What does a recycling specialist do?

Raw materials are not available in unlimited quantities. This means that they have to be reused wherever possible. Collecting, sorting, preparing and storing reusable materials as well as arranging for them to be reused: this is the task of a recycling specialist.

Why this training is attractive

The three-year training for the qualification of recycling specialist is extremely varied. And you will also be making a direct contribution to preserving our environment. There are numerous advanced training options after completing the Federal Certificate of Proficiency [EFZ] as a recycling specialist. You can either sit professional examinations in a number of areas or – with a vocational school-leaving certificate – take an undergraduate degree at university. You can find full details relating to the training here.
