Digitisation and agility are crucial to meeting client’s needs in the increasingly fast-paced world of private banking – thus magnifying the need for highly-qualified IT specialists. As Andreas Fahrni, Head Global Information Technology at Julius Baer, explains, the bank is making an important contribution to IT education in Switzerland through its practical and wide-ranging IT apprenticeship programme.
“In addition to the technical aspect, it is important that the apprentices develop their personality and their team skills during the programme. That’s why we not only offer them subject-specific training and workshops, but also camps and events to promote solidarity and team spirit.” Benjamin Sueess – Head Young Talents
Julius Baer is an attractive employer for apprentices, because they reap the benefits of a global company with the support and collegiality of a much smaller one. Our accessible structure, flat hierarchies and our approachable and supportive leaders provide a stimulating work environment.
Thanks to this unique programme, the apprentices develop into ambitious, independent and motivated personalities who are well equipped for the professional world after completion of the programme.
