    We have successfully delivered apprenticeship programs for many years. We were the first in the canton of Valais to receive a "Great Start" certificate in 2019, awarded by Great Place to Work® Switzerland. As part of the certification process, nine out of ten apprentices describe Lonza as a very good place to train and recommend Lonza Visp as a great place to learn and work.

    At the beginning of August each year, more that 70 new apprentices start their training in Visp. Up to two thirds of apprentices stay with Lonza and some return for further study. We are currently training ~250 apprentices at our Visp site.

    Many of our business leaders began their careers as apprentices and have subsequently built successful careers in research, manufacturing and other fields.

    If you are interested in joining you can complete a trial apprenticeship (“Schnupperlehre”) and start your career with us.
