Further Training

We support subject-specific trainings for our employees whenever we can. We are convinced that gaining further qualifications is not only important for the development of each individual employee but just as crucial to the overall company success. Especially in times of economic, technological and social developments, the job market and our everyday worklife constantly changes and requires different competencies from our employees. As a company in the automotive industry, we need to be flexible and dynamic in order to adapt to these changes.

Besides multiple on-the-job trainings, ERICH JAEGER has supported several MBA programs in the past through the partial assumption of costs. We want to keep on profiting from this experience and offer you the opportunity to complete your trainings and studies with us - at any time in your career!

Employee Stories

Diego Patino

Yinghua Wang

Head of Development of the JAEGER Group

"If you're only in one country, you might only be aware of what is happening on the surface. But to really visit the factory on site and talk to the people over a longer period of time, that trains compassion and understanding among each other."

Benjamin Hieke

Head of Wire Harness Development at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany.

"In 2016, I asked our managing director at that time which kind of career opportunities were available for young employees at ERICH JAEGER. He then suggested that a degree was necessary to advance to management level. I then found a suitable correspondence course at the Technical University in Friedberg. Normally, a bachelor's degree is a prerequisite for a master's degree, and fortunately the THM offered this in a package, so I had the opportunity to complete both degrees."

Helmut Michalke

Head of Supply Chain Management at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany

"Intercultural competence is very important here and the international teams are a real enrichment. Every culture is different, but in the end everyone is the same and has their own problems and goals. There is a different working atmosphere at each location. In China, for example, I regularly played basketball with colleagues."

Lukas Zimmer

Head of Inside Sales at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany

"My path has definitely taken one or two turns that I didn't see coming before. Of course, you have to bring a certain flexibility with you. Sometimes opportunities simply arise. Five or six years ago, I would never have thought that I would become head of the Inside Sales team."

Mareike Moeglich

Project Manager Components and Systems at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany

"It used to be much less common than it is today for girls to pursue a technical profession. I was 16 when I started. And as a 16-year-old girl, I was really an outsider, or rather a rarity. (…) But I never perceived the issue as a problem here. It was rather pleasant for everyone that a woman was finally part of the team."

Developer of hard- and software in the Development Department at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany

"The team is just great and honestly I believe that you won't find this kind of solidarity and a place where work is this much fun, regardless of the activities, that often."

Michael Kress

Graduate Engineer of Electronic Development Software at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany

"The control unit development continued to work more closely with the electric harness development and I found that very exciting. However, I didn't have an engineering degree to be able to help develop control units. So in 2006, I decided to study engineering."
