Working student.
Start your career while you are studying.

Why wait? Gain work experience while you study and be a part of exciting projects and day-to-day business operations.

For some of our colleagues, a working student placement was the launching pad to their career at RATIONAL. Every employee at RATIONAL is an entrepreneur within the enterprise (intrapreneurship principle) and takes responsibility for his or her actions and decisions. As a working student, you are part of a team and play an important contribution to the success of our company.

Every working student is assigned a mentor who provides support, nurturing and care. We emphasise the importance on an honest and fair working partnership. In close collaboration with your colleagues, you work on smaller projects or support operational activities. In this way, you get to know our day-to-day business operations inside and out and the responsibilities of the division. You can also make your first professional contacts. A variety of tasks and challenges await you depending on the division and subject you choose.

Are you looking for a challenge? If yes, then this is just the right place.
We want our business relationship to be based on an equal footing and give you your own responsibilities. It is therefore important to us that you keep to your promises and are prepared to identify with our philosophy. RATIONAL AG is the international market and technology leader in innovative high-tech solutions for professional kitchens around the world and can offer an insight into a small to medium-sized enterprise.

All the current working student vacancies available at RATIONAL can be found on the job portal. If you cannot find a suitable position yet are still interested in becoming part of the RATIONAL family, then we look forward to receiving your application with information on which area you would like to spend a student placement.
