Polymechanic, loves new travel destinations and working on his allotment.
Precision craftsmanship meets mechanics.
Our polymechanics attach great importance to independence, craftsmanship and precision. Work with a high-precision machine fleet utilising the latest control technology. You program directly using the CNC machine or the CAM system and make prototypes or series parts. In the process, you take into account the logical production steps and the materials being machined. Then check the quality specifications and program in any corrections required. You work skilfully with cutting equipment such as drilling, turning and milling tools.
Forward-thinking, but off the cuff.
We are looking for solution-oriented polymechanics able to think off the cuff. When performing your varied activities you will encounter unforeseen challenges over and over again, and you will use your skills to find a solution. Do you have an excellent imagination and a visionary eye? Fantastic, then you've come to the right place! You take account of various factors, such as temperature fluctuations, in your calculations. Your hard work keeps Switzerland on the move at all times.
You operate various state-of-the-art machines, such as turning and milling centres. Digitalisation means that you develop components directly using CAD/CAM software on a computer and produce the corresponding CNC programs. This requires IT and program knowledge, and offers you a challenging and varied working day.
At SBB you will find an exceptional working model. Whilst you may have become used to two-shift operation elsewhere, our polymechanics are able to determine their work times themselves. Polymechanics at SBB do not work shift patterns, and instead follow flexible working hours. This makes it easier to achieve good work-life balance and you can decide yourself when your work times will be.
We have a fair and progressive remuneration system. We reward individual performance, take the nature of the job market into account and create transparency. We have also been awarded the We Pay Fair label.
Special offers for SBB employees.
Our employees benefit from attractive discounts from companies across Switzerland. This includes everything from insurance through to language courses and electronic devices.
All of our employees are issued a 2nd class GA travelcard – the only requirement is that they work at least 50 per cent of full-time working hours and have been employed at SBB for more than a year. Our staff also benefit from discounted rail journeys abroad.
You have invested a lot in yourself. Your qualifications and commitment are critical to our success. With us you can really get things moving. This is why extensive training and further education, modern working methods and attractive working conditions are important to us.
As a polymechanic, there are various opportunities such as master craftsperson training, team leader training or job planning training.
When you work for SBB, it is no exaggeration that the country would come to a standstill without us. Here you can be proud of your work. Because what you're doing is important for Switzerland. Our polymechanics ensure a safe working environment and make sure that Switzerland is always on the move.
