Information about your apprenticeship

The Wilo way

No company is the same as the next: Wilo makes your entry path and development easy. We want to help you develop, not just place demands on you. Learn more about our offers.

Wilo Welcome

The Wilo Welcome is the friendly “Hello” we extend to apprentices and new recruits. It provides you with information about the company, the apprenticeship and further training, plus plenty of opportunities to get to know your new colleagues. To ensure an element of fun, the schedule includes a special apprentice puzzlehunt and a networking event.

Work training

With Wilo you are always on the ball! The manual training at Wilo aids your performance at vocational training college and systematically prepares you for your exams. We have developed a complete training workshop where apprentices in technical jobs can put theory into practice under the supervision of a competent instructor.

Training courses & projects

We put great emphasis on holistic development. In addition to regular product training, we offer our apprentices the opportunity to further their personal and social skills by participating in seminars. Apprentices can also work on different projects in interdisciplinary teams and practise what they have learnt.

Trade fair visit

Our apprentices attend trade fairs with us – sometimes as visitors, and sometimes as Wilo ambassadors. Trade fairs allow our apprentices to familiarise themselves with product innovations and thus develop a better understanding of the sector. At school fairs, they represent Wilo and pass their experiences on to other pupils.


What should I expect in my job interview?

The same applies as for an apprenticeship or a course of study: if you want to know more, you only have to ask.

How do I apply for an apprenticeship?

You can upload your application via our web-based portal.

If you are younger than 16 years old, we need the consent of your legal guardian to apply. A template for the consent of your parent or guardian can be found here.

Please register and submit your application on our web-based portal:

What application deadlines apply?

You should apply approximately twelve months before you want your apprenticeship to start. The application closing date is 31 October of the previous year.

What does a strong application contain?

When will I hear back from Wilo?

You will be given confirmation of receipt shortly after applying to inform you that we have received your documents. Invitations to recruitment tests are sent out after the autumn school holidays at the earliest.

How does the selection process work?

After reviewing your application documents, we narrow down the field to the suitable candidates. We then invite these candidates to an interview with training instructors or training managers. We have also created a recruitment test for you to sit. Some sites feature an Apprentice Assessment Centre. This helps us to work out whether you are the right fit for our company.

What should I expect in my job interview?

If we invite you to an interview, you have already cleared the first hurdle: your profile caught our eye, you have impressed us with your performance in our recruitment test and we would like to get to know you better. Speak authentically and be yourself – don’t try to be someone you are not. Take the opportunity to find out whether your training profession will be right for you. We’ll be doing the same.
