Working in maintenance

Pretty smart

You have put stock in the right training: automation engineers, electronics engineers, automotive mechatronics engineers and electricians, but also multi-skilled mechanics and farm machinery mechanics are in demand. With us, for example. At the locations of Bönigen, Spiez, Oberburg and Givisiez, over 250 maintenance staff are responsible for “their” train and every day ensure that thousands of customers reach their destination safely and on time. An important job with a lot of responsibility.

Anyone switching to BLS is making a good move. Betting on the future card, they also stand to benefit from some distinct advantages:

Do something meaningful:

with trains. And with your future. Ecological mobility is cool and it is the future, that much is certain. BLS has a plan and still has a lot to do. We are planning for the long term with you.

Interesting work:

with modern high-tech trains that are more varied and diverse than you may think. A fleet that literally shines and is, from a technical point of view, among the very best. Video, air conditioning, doors and traction: this is where you’ll need all your skills.

Teamwork rocks:

if you are on the same wave length as us, you’ll immediately feel at home. You are helpful, reliable and easy-going, as well as cheerful with a positive disposition. Working on trains rocks and our team spirit does too.

Absolutely fair:

BLS is a fair employer. Salary, social security benefits and company benefits are attractive. And we pay good attention to the working time regulations, protective clothing and safety at work. Put in a nutshell, the working conditions are really good.
