We offer getting to know the environment of our company already during one’s studies. Both high school and university students go through short term professional work experience as well as longer internships throughout the company and its departments.
Is theory not enough? Would you like to have the hands-on experience? Then the HELLA Trainee Program is ideal for you!
What will the Trainee Program bring you?
As part of the trainee program, it is possible to arrange for the processing of bachelor's, master's or other graduate thesis.
HOPE FOR A NEW BEGINNING
„For fresh graduates, it is not easy to find a job. That is why it was important for me to find an internship during my studies, where I would use my knowledge in practice and gain new experience. I managed to do just that and after a year's internship, I got a position of test technician in a top development laboratory.“
Ing. Lucie Radová, Test technician
PUTTING THEORY IN PRACTICE
„For me, the main attraction to apply for the trainee programme was the fact that I had known and followed the company for a long time and I wanted, at that time as a student of Industrial Engineering, to have a look into the automotive industry environment, where I could see the methods of the field in practice. Within the Hella trainee programme, I had the opportunity to go through the whole company from headlamp development, through sample building, pre-production to final assembly.“
Ing. Jan Mach, Production planning technician
BASIS FOR THE FUTURE
„I took the opportunity of the Hella trainee programme already during my university studies, which was key for my settling in the company. The gradual gaining of experience mainly in the automotive and plastics processing areas has helped me with the sharp start of my 3D constructor career. I can now develop my interest in 3D modeling and technology day by day also thanks to my experienced colleagues in the team. “
Ing. Tomáš Gerla, 3D Constructor
Co-operation with high schools is very important to us!
For this reason, we support the high schools related in field in the area. We are open to excursions, work experience and internships. We, of course, also want to be “seen” at schools and prepare and motivate the students for practice as best as we can. We try to enrich the education by the means of course material as well as our input. The support of school competitions and other events, which further develops the students, is a sure thing. We believe that this co-operation can help guiding these prospective applicants directly into our company. In all cases, our doors are open even to people with secondary education.
Co-operation with universities is also crucial for success in the long-term horizon.
HELLA Autotechnik Nova Ltd. is an important partner of the faculty of Tomas Bata University and we develop the co-operation with the Department of Production Machines and Design at VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava very intensively.
We organize excursions to our company for students, offer a catalogue of diploma theses and we also opened a new study programme Plastics in engineering and car construction at the Department of Production Machines and Design VŠB. Since the 2011/2012 academic year, 4th year students are taken into the problematics of construction design and production process headlamps and combination rear lights. After the successful completion of this optionally compulsory course, the graduate will be “one step in” their professional career, i.e.: in the construction office, which we opened on September 9, 2011 in Ostrava Science and Technology Park.
In collaboration with Automotive Lighting, Hella covers teaching of the voluntary course Design of automotive lighting in the 4th year of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University in Brno. You can find more information here. In 2015, VUT succeeded in accrediting a new study course Production of Automotive and Technical Lights.
