Secondary school leavers and apprentices

Sujet Lernende

New recruits are not only those who contribute to our business, but also those who drive it: young people keen to shape a future that is ultimately theirs. Curiosity and enterprise is therefore encouraged as much as expertise. For good specialists are equally important as strong personalities. And we require a combination of both. If this is something you aspire to, you’ve come to the right place.

What you can expect from our vocational training

If you would like to know about the quality of Helsana training, just ask our apprentices and interns. We often do, and are very proud to say that we always receive top marks. But we are even more proud of our new recruits, who just as often finish their training with top marks.

From your very first day of training with us, an experienced and motivated crew of vocational trainers will be on hand to offer you on-the-job support and advice throughout your training. In addition to personal and extensive support, and modern and well-equipped workstations, you can also look forward to progressive contractual terms that apply to all of our apprenticeships and internships.

Even after completing an apprenticeship or long-term placement as part of an entirely school-based VET programme, we offer our new recruits individual and ongoing professional development opportunities. For we know that they are an asset to us and that we can generally offer them a suitable position thanks to the size and variety of our business.

Lea Marcucci, trainee business administrator, shares virtually everything with her friends and relies on an environment of trust at work, too.

Interested in an apprenticeship?

An exciting and varied training period awaits that will take you through various Helsana departments and give you a deeper insight into the many different tasks performed by a modern health and accident insurer.

If you would like to know more, simply attend one of our career information days held in spring at several locations across Switzerland for a range of apprenticeship trades. These will give you the opportunity to get a feel for Helsana, to take a look behind the scenes, and to find out first hand from our apprentices about the content and quality of our training programmes. Are you interested? Send us an e-mail.

Everything else you need to know about our requirements and the application process can be found in our apprenticeship advertisements and in "Four steps to an apprenticeship contract".

Looking to complete a secondary school internship?

If you are looking to follow three years of commercial or upper secondary business school with a one-year placement where you can put your theoretical knowledge to practice, Helsana is the perfect place for you: we offer a wide range of challenging internships at various locations as part of an entirely school-based VET programme or to gain entry into a university of applied sciences. After successfully completing your practical training, you will be ready for the job market or a course of study at a university of applied sciences.

All details on our requirements and the application process can be found in our internship advertisements.
