A wide range of possibilities for young talents

The best way to start a career is to train for a qualification. To secure our long-term personnel requirements, we offer a wide range of vocational training. We have a strong tradition of training at KACO, of which we are proud. We train above-average numbers of young people because we know that our trainees are the future of KACO. Our headquarters at Kirchardt includes an excellently equipped training workshop for all commercial and technical professions. Young people receive very practical training from us. Team-building measures support their development.

In addition, we maintain ongoing collaborations with schools and universities to establish links with talented school-leavers and graduates at an early stage. Students from cooperative universities have the opportunity at KACO to get to know how a company works while they are still studying. For this reason, many students at the Cooperative Universities in Mosbach and Stuttgart have, for many years, gladly taken the opportunity to gain practical experience with us. Start your future with us!
