Julius Baer’s ambitious training programme offers young talents the opportunity to obtain a Federal VET Diploma as a bank clerk, IT professional focusing on system technology or ICT specialist. Apprentices receive comprehensive training, build a network across the company and develop their overall skills to be prepared for a career at Julius Baer. When training as a bank clerk, apprentices gain practical experience and training to conduct daily business in banking. During the three-year training course, they take classes two days a week at KV Zurich and spend 30 days at the Centre for Young Professionals in Banking (CYP) to learn the theory of banking. They also undertake practical placements in six different departments of our Bank, which enable them to further develop their newly acquired theoretical knowledge and apply it in real-life situations. These training units and courses enable them to attain the knowledge and practical skills they need to advance in banking. When doing an IT apprenticeship with a focus on system technology or as an ICT specialist, apprentices gain practical experience and training to conduct daily business in IT. The IT apprenticeship with a focus on system technology, and the apprenticeship qualifying them as an ICT specialist provide apprentices with a sound knowledge of their chosen field. They complete their training with a Federal VET Diploma. These two IT apprenticeships give young IT talents the knowledge and practical skills needed for a successful career in IT at Julius Baer.
