Bosch is to recruit 20,000 specialists and executives in the technical and commercial fields this year, with half of all jobs currently advertised relating to software in some way.
To come up with solutions for the internet of things, such as connected production lines or connected agriculture, Bosch maintains it will combine its hardware and software knowledge.
“Connected solutions are creating new jobs,” said Bosch director of industrial relations, Christoph Kübel. “People with professional experience and software skills have especially good chances, which includes mechanical engineers and software developers.
“The complexity of connected solutions continues to grow, which is why we specifically foster the knowledge and creativity of our associates through training, flexible working models, as well as mixed leadership teams.”
The company’s staffing needs are greatest in Germany (3,400 jobs), India (3,100 jobs), and China (2,500 jobs). In addition to the 20,000 specialists and executives in the technical and commercial fields, new hires are also planned in manufacturing.
“Ensuring a good work-life balance for our associates is a high priority for us,” added Kübel
“It increases their level of satisfaction and improves the results of the work they perform.”
