An apprenticeship at GLS – what it’s about

The focus of the three-year commercial apprenticeship at GLS is on logistics: apprentices become familiar with the processes behind parcel dispatch within a domestic and Europe-wide network. The apprentice office assistants are involved in sales pitches, seminars and conferences in the process.

An apprenticeship for real all-rounders: learn commercial activities such as accounting and correspondence. Look beyond your own horizons and discover various business areas – from purchasing to marketing and sales. What’s more: as of the second year of the apprenticeship, you will spend some time at the head office, becoming familiar with the departments based there.

Dual studies at GLS

If you have gained your Matura qualification, we have very special career prospects for you: you can work in the company and complete a degree in Germany at the same time. Does it sound interesting? It is. You can find all the relevant information on the website of our sister company in Germany.
