Training positions starting in August 2020 were filled already some time ago. However, we have advertised two more training vacancies at our Basel location in order to provide a new alternative for students who have lost their apprenticeships as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
Once their training is complete, we search for suitable employment options for our leavers. If there are no suitable vacancies upon completing their training, we will find a transitional solution, for example with a temporary position in our junior staff pool. We are extremely keen to keep our trainees with their skills and knowledge at Baloise.
Another 50 training vacancies will be advertised in Switzerland for 2021: 38 apprenticeships (commercial and IT), 7 commercial school internships and 8 Young Insurance Professional VBV positions. This equates to even more training vacancies than last year. In Germany, 16 new training positions were filled in 2020: 10 apprentices, 4 IT specialists and 2 dual students. The number of trainees thus remains at the same level as in 2019.
