Training as a forwarding/logistics agent – top company is looking for apprentices

The RCG runs a first-class apprenticeship program. Numerous awards won by the Group and its apprentices are testament to that. The RCG is now inviting any ambitious young person to apply for its next training course.

RCG’s excellent apprenticeship program has been recognized over and over again, e.g. by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber it has been awarded with the quality label “Top Apprenticeship”, which the Group is allowed to use until 2022. The RCG apprentices themselves are also among the best of their year. A good ten percent of all our apprentices have won a prize: at the Stars of Styria, Braunau Vocational College, Vorarlberg Chamber of Commerce, and the Vienna “Berufswettbewerb der kaufmännischen Jugend” (Professional competition of the young commercial people). These awards show that our apprentices are very motivated and that the RCG is getting its training courses right.

Attractive training

The RCG’s apprenticeship offers a solid training course for budding forwarding/logistics agents. Rotating every six months to a different section of the Group, our young colleagues learn everything there is to know about international forwarding and logistics. RCG also includes innovative and future-oriented aspects, such as promoting foreign languages, personal development seminars, and the use of new media. One particular highlight are our Europe Weeks: We offer our highest performers four-week internships in one of the Group’s European businesses where the apprentices can gain international experience even before they completed their training.

Applications are now open

If you would like to join the training course starting in September 2019 you need to apply by the end of February 2019. There are 30 apprenticeships available to train as forwarding/logistics agent. Further information is available at:
