You want to understand administration and technology?

As an industrial clerk you will be involved in all commercial processes at KNOLL. That will make you familiar with the company and with all related processes. In addition, you will also be taught the most important basic technical principles.

Sounds good? It gets better! During the three years of training, you will be deployed to different departments, which will leave lots of options open to you at the end of your training. Deployment is then possible to qualified jobs in many different departments.

Varied training with an additional qualification in technology is waiting for you! Theoretical knowledge will be taught to you at the Helene-Weber School in Bad Saulgau. Technical instruction will take place at the Willi-Burth School in Bad Saulgau.

What you should bring with you:

  • Intermediate-level secondary education
  • Pleasure in dealing with people and good communications skills
  • Accurate spelling
  • Good knowledge of English
  • Organisational skills
  • Interest in business and technical relationships

Experience report of Emin

You quit your studies and started an apprenticeship at KNOLL. What were the reasons for this?

Before my apprenticeship as an industrial clerk, I was a student. But since I was very lacking in practical content, I decided to start my apprenticeship here. At KNOLL, I get to learn both theoretically and practically, and all this in harmony with my hobby.

Your big hobby is playing football. What connects your apprenticeship with your leisure activities?

The opportunity to work at KNOLL allows me to fulfil my professional ambitions and at the same time live out my regional ties. This includes, for example, my club affiliation with SC Türkiyemspor here in Bad Saulgau. In our District Football League, I meet some work colleagues in the opposing team on the football pitch almost every weekend, which gives the whole thing an extra thrill.

What we can offer you during (and after) training

At KNOLL, we will always see you as a person, not just as an employee. We have numerous non-job-related offers for our staff in the fields of health, social issues, further training, quality of life and quality of work. And we're always up to date! Find out here what you can expect from us.

Training Ace


We are a recognised training organisation and have been awarded to the official seal "Training Ace". KNOLL can give you the chance to lay a valuable groundstone for your later professional life – with excellent chances of being taken on afterwards, assuming your final certificate and personal commitment are as expected. It often happens that a member of staff started working with us as a trainee and is now a member of management staff.

Friendly work environment


Modern equipment and a pleasant climate await you at your workplace. Bright rooms, flooded with daylight are standard for us – even in the production halls. After taking lunch in our canteen, you can let off steam by challenging your colleagues to a game of table football.



At KNOLL, we have core working times, but you are free to decide when you start and when you finish your daily work – of course in agreement with your supervisor and/or your team. That makes it easier to flexibly plan personal appointments and to pursue hobbies and sporting activities alongside your training.

Pleasant colleagues and team spirit


With us, you're not just one among a thousand. Every training year we take on around 40 trainees in the different occupations requiring training. And KNOLL supports every single one of them. You have a concern? Your colleagues and supervisors will have an ear for you at any time. You get to know them right at the start. The focus in the first week of training is on team building and getting to know each other.

Further training


KNOLL attaches great value to advanced and further training. Even after completing your training, assuming you are taken on, many training channels will be open to you – to become a technician or business administrator – or another form of further training. Our specially founded "Talent Pool" supports eligible members of staff with an individually designed development concept.



During training, there is a program of events covering the whole year.  During the first training week there is an Ice-Breaker Day. In addition, each trainee is able to visit an OWB disabled workshop for three days during training. What will you learn? You will get insight into the life and work of handicapped people – and you can reinforce your own social skills.

Healthy with KNOLL


Health and sport are important for KNOLL. The company's own sports offerings such as spinning and yoga, plus team days with canoeing and climbing events ensure that our employees stay fit and are able to really let loose. Here, we work with fitness studios and other experienced partners in the region.

KNOLL social


We accept our social responsibility. For example, we are involved in youth support and care for the elderly through the Bad Saulgau Civic Trust, and we assist social institutions in the region. We operate an exchange program with a disabled workshop through the KNOLL inclusion project with the OWB and we help to provide an answer to current challenges for our society by integrating refugees.
