In the age of digitalization we are taking great steps in our evolution from a plant and machine builder to a smart systems supplier. Every day we work on the design and development of new solutions for our business and transfer our know-how to new product areas, what we call “New Horizon”. For this we need bright minds who accept this “Mission digital” from day one of their training, and who can work with us to develop creative ideas and translate them into teamwork. Training with us should be fun and stimulating. Because we want you to be interested and motivated when you come to work every day.

In our film for trainees, “Mission digital” (which is so far only available in German), we go in search of “Agents 4.0” who want to shape the digital future of our SMS group and contribute their ideas and creativity from the very first day of training. Our trainee agents show how it’s done in the film. You too can be an Agent 4.0 at SMS group!

We offer a wide range of exciting careers, from production and machine design, commercial operations, or working with IT systems. Check us out online and take a look at our YouTube channel "SMSAzubi”. Our 360 degree tour offers you an exciting insight into our LernWERK training center and our range of vocational training and apprenticeships. Get to know us personally and find out lots more at one of our many information events or as part of our cooperative programs with schools. Look forward to training in a high-tech company. We look forward to welcoming you.
