Careers at PORR.
Your energy and passion for your work are the foundations of your success. Are you ready to pitch in and follow through? Are you a team player who is always willing to lend a hand, ambitious and keen to learn from your colleagues? If so, you’ll fit in perfectly with the PORR team.
We ask a lot of our employees, but in return we support and encourage them in every respect. This includes professional and personal development and a working environment that prioritises team spirit and shared success.
At PORR, you will learn to transform the theory of construction into practice – step by step. A manager will always be by your side throughout your apprenticeship period. This person is responsible for your training and will guide you through the individual work steps. This means that you will be able to contribute to the team’s work right from your first day. During the industrial apprenticeship training you will also work closely with your colleagues, specialists and auxiliary staff. Reliability and teamwork always come first at PORR.
In addition to the industrial apprenticeship, you also have the option of completing a commercial or technical apprenticeship at PORR. Here you can find out more about the various possibilities for your apprenticeship.
Theory and lots of practice: the four pillars of the PORR industrial apprentice training.
Industrial apprentice training at PORR is based on four pillars:
Your training at the BAUakademie (construction academy)
In the BAUakademie (construction academy) you learn and practise practical skills that you have not yet learnt on the construction site or in the vocational school. This additional training is held at the training-construction-site and runs for two to three weeks per academic year.
Vocational school for construction vocations
In the vocational school for construction vocations you learn the theoretical basis for the art of construction. The lessons take up about ten weeks of the school year on average. The school weeks are blocked, meaning that you don’t work on the construction site during these periods.
Working on the construction site
You learn how to handle tools and materials in your everyday work. Your trainer explains the individual work steps and ensures that you do everything properly. It goes without saying that you also learn the precautions and safety awareness needed on any construction site.
Teamwork breeds success: during your apprenticeship, there are always colleagues by your side to answer any questions you may have. In addition you have the support of eLearning programmes for the final apprenticeship exam, including topics such as on-site safety. This gives you the optimal preparation for graduation.
The best of the best: our high-fliers are always willing to put their skills to the test. They participate in competitions that allow their expertise to shine through.
With the PORR Campus in Vienna Simmering, a new era in construction training and further education began at the end of September 2019.
Our offer for tradespeople and apprentices thus reaches a new level and adds a fourth pillar to the previous system of construction apprenticeships.
Digitalisation and interdisciplinary cooperation are becoming increasingly important and are making our PORRians fit for a digital future.
