Job Planning Specialist – for the reliability of our trains, now and in the future.

Do you like working in an industrial environment? 

In the return-to-work programme to become a job planning specialist, you learn all about the world of maintenance for SBB passenger trains and make a significant contribution through your work. 

A targeted mentoring programme during your training helps you through your return to work so that you can unlock all of your potential. 

Passion for job and manufacturing planning. 

As a job planning specialist, you work in the area of component maintenance in Olten or Yverdon-les-bains. You create and maintain the master data of the manufacturing documents for all components on passenger trains. Your range of tasks include creating work plans, bills of materials and calculations, which are needed in workshop production for diagnosing and repairing faults in the coaches, locomotives and access doors. Together with colleagues from your team, you develop and implement solutions to tackle current challenges.

Thanks to your knack for problem solving, you work with a well-established team to make a significant contribution to the smooth planning and procurement of materials for overhauling, repairs and new production of the rail vehicles. 

The programme in detail.

The return-to-work programme starts in Olten or Yverdon-les-bains and lasts 6 to 12 months, depending on the level of employment. The minimum working percentage is 60%. Following one week of theoretical onboarding at the SBB training centre, you set out your first month in the area of job planning personally and together with your manager, on the basis of your professional experience and specialist knowledge. 

The aim is to get to grips with the organization of the workshop and its various areas in a practical way, while also building up your network or contacts and relationships. During this time, you take the driving test for job planning. The skills you acquire will then enable you to take on responsibility and work independently on small projects. Your mentor is always by your side during this stage of your training, supporting you to continually improve your work and production processes.
