If you want to be a part of this passion, we look forward to hearing from you and receiving your application.
As the global leader in the manufacture of textile accessories we place great value on high quality vocational training. We offer the perfect entry and professional prospects in a variety of vocational fields. Open trainee positions for training year 2023 at our location in Wüstenselbitz/Helmbrechts:
Is it fun for you to tackle problems from the ground up? To analyze processes and ask "Can’t this be made to work more simply, better, more efficiently and above all more digitally? Then perhaps a training opportunity to become an IT specialist for data and process analysis (m/f/x) is just what you’ve been looking for. The focus is on testing and questioning current work and business procedures at the information technology level. For example, the IT specialist for data and process analysis (m/f/x) examines data for quality, plausibility, quantity, redundancy (i.e., repetition), completeness and validity. If results deviate from what has been predicted, the IT specialist (m/f/x) will propose measures to improve the data in the subject at hand. The scope of the job deals with opportunities to make data-driven processes more efficient, digitizing business procedures, automating tasks and designing applicable solutions – in conformance with IT security and data protection. In addition to analytical thinking, you bring technical understanding, stamina for complex issues and a willingness to continuously learn and acquire new technical knowledge.
Six million scarves and other textile accessories such as shawls, blankets, hats and gloves are produced annually in our fully integrated production facility. In the past, many hand weavers made the shuttle dance, but nowadays, of course, this is done by machine. On our modern production lines we weave, raschel, knit and finish. Reliable machinery is the be-all and end-all - and this is where you come in. As a mechatronics technician (m/f/x), you build individual mechanical and electronic components and assemble them into plants and systems. You put them into operation, and program them with the corresponding software. Before the system goes into series production, it is your job to test it comprehensively. In addition, you maintain mechatronic systems and repair them if necessary. A good spatial sense helps you to understand and orient yourself to circuit diagrams and design drawings.
Our design team works out of Wüstenselbitz, New York, Düsseldorf and Shanghai. Market proximity and technical proficiency are the hallmarks of the design and product development of 500 – 700 new styles annually. Our textile designers come up with their own designs or use designs customers bring which are then realized in woven, rochelle and knitted accessories. Besides the creative design ideas it is necessary to consider economic viability and technical feasibility. The training for a product designer in textile encompasses learning about construction techniques, developing and drafting designs and their application in manufacturing. Contributing innovative and trendy ideas to the development of attractive accessories as well as working according to given specifications and confident poise with customers should all be easy for you.
Finishing raw woven goods is a significant reason why we are the leader in quality. This is where a piece of woven material becomes a real scarf. The raw goods are dyed, washed, fulled, wet scoured, stretched, dried, softened, napped, sheared, pressed, decated, brushed and more. As a textile product finisher you work in a team to continually find ways to improve our materials. The traineeship encompasses the learning and controlling of textile finishing processes, verifying key data and getting to know the characteristics of various textile materials. The set up, operation and monitoring of machines along with computerized calculation of chemical-technical ingredients are all parts of your daily job. Your hallmarks are an instinct for the best quality as well as enthusiasm for technology. You are just as interested in textile materials as you are in chemical compositions and physical interactions. As a textile product finisher you have the privilege of applying the finishing touch to our accessories.
Not only are scarves your world, but also all machines? If that is the case, then the training position as a machine and plant operator (m/f/x) is just right for you. You will learn our machines inside and out, keep them in top operating standards, and intervene when something needs to be maintained. In addition, you will monitor textile production and ensure the quality that we at V. FRAAS have maintained over the years. Your activities will also include taking into account environmental protection and occupational safety requirements. If technical developments are your thing, you are very welcome to join us. You should have mechanical understanding, motor skills and a quick grasp of tasks and requirements. After your training, you have the opportunity to be promoted to textile product finisher (m/f/x) or production mechanic (m/f/x).
