Production assistants: playing a crucial role in all producing industries
Production assistants can work in all producing companies. A specific training is not required. However, potential employers may appreciate candidates with professional experience in certain industries and therefore prefer such applicants. The requirements production assistants have to meet depend on the type of production.
Which opportunities do production assistants have on the labour market?
It is not possible to make a general statement about the career and development opportunities of production assistants – after all, these opportunities strongly depend on the type of producing industry they have already gained professional experience in. Logistics and mechanical engineering are only two industries in which qualified production assistants are sought-after. Additional qualifications, such as a forklift licence, are advantageous.
As physical activities belong to the daily business of some producing industries, production assistants should have good physical condition. Long-term professional experience may be a plus when completing a further training programme in a technical field.
