Specialist recruitment on a grand scale

Winterthur, 2 December 2016 – Kistler seeks more than 40 specialists in what is likely Switzerland's largest job advertisement. Constant growth, jobs to be filled and the second-time award of Winterthur's job creation prize in the "Absolute job growth" category show that Kistler Group is successful.

National and international growth curve

Headquartered in Winterthur, the Kistler Group has been growing both nationally and internationally for many years. Growth is not confined to the number of sites, there are also constantly rising staffing requirements. This is no coincidence, as continued growth reflects the enterprise's preparations in the wake of new trends (e.g. digitization of the value chain, Industry 4.0, electrification in the automotive industry etc.), which Kistler has initiated in various sectors. This year more than 50 new jobs were created locally (615 FTE) rising to 130 (1569 FTE) worldwide. Anyone spotting what is likely to be Switzerland's largest job advertisement at Winterthur's main train station will know that Kistler is still actively scouting for forty (measuring technology) specialists.

We are in the happy position of being able to offer attractive jobs and great career opportunities.

Rolf Sonderegger, CEO Kistler Group


Vacancies for qualified employees

Kistler has enjoyed continuous growth for many years. As Rolf Sonderegger, Kistler Group CEO emphasizes: "We are in the happy position of being able to offer attractive jobs and great career opportunities. Our fast growth and shortage of qualified staff pose huge challenges in terms of recruitment." The search for qualified personnel goes on at both the national and international level: "So we will continue to create jobs in the future and are therefore delighted with the Job Creation Award 2016. This accolade pays tribute to our major endeavors as an employer with strong regional roots."

The award, for which the Kistler Group has regularly achieved top rankings in recent years, was presented at the Winterthur region SME Forum by Michael Domeisen, Managing Director of the Winterthur region's development office. He is delighted that "a company like Kistler supports Winterthur and invests in sustained job creation."
