More than 50 different apprenticeship occupations can be completed in DB Group.

This is supplemented by the job preparation program “Chance plus” for young people who need support in accessing the labor market.

  • We support refugees with their integration into Germany: the Social and Cultural Integration project (Soziale und kulturelle Integration; SUKI), in collaboration with the Railway and Transport Workers Union (Eisenbahn- und Verkehrsgewerkschaft; EVG), Stiftungsfamilie BSW&
    EWH (foundation partnership), and the social security fund, offers inte­­gration-related services to supplement professional qualification programs for people with a refugee and migration background.
  • The range of support services for DB young professionals has been further developed with ZukunftPlus e. V., and LifeHacks4u has been im­­plemented as a Group-wide service to provide individual support for young talent in matters beyond training.
  • We recognize outstanding performance and great commitment in our entry-level programs through the Excellence Program for particularly high-performing young professionals.
