If you are interested, please send us your application and supporting documents by mail.


Demanding and supporting

We are investing in our employees because those who make demands also need to be willing to provide support. Making demands and providing support go hand in hand with regard to management and personnel development. Things like education and continued internal training are very important to us because the success of the company depends on what each individual can contribute to it.

The basis for our activities regarding continued training and education is a systematic analysis of our needs. Individual education concepts are developed together.

What we have to offer

We reward a high willingness to perform accordingly. Besides the financial aspects – money isn't everything after all – we also offer other things that make living and working at Hügli easier.

Hügli provides attractive options where working-time models are concerned. Options that enable employees to structure their working time more flexibly in consultation with their superiors and so improve the balance between their personal and professional lives. Working time is mapped across the entire company as annual working time. Employees and the company benefit from the flexibility that this creates.

The many other offerings, including an annual company party or the annual Hügli ski race, show that we are not solely focused on work.

We have the future in mind where our company pension scheme is concerned. This is where active support is provided both in regard to the pension fund as well as the option for converting salaries for which tax relief is available.

Training with taste

You're looking for a recipe for starting your career? Irrespective of whether you cook by instructions or simply throw something together from what's in the fridge – Hügli combines training skills with interesting concepts for everybody. We've been successfully training people at our company for decades.



Training at our company is intensively accompanied from start to finish:

  • Familiarisation week with different events designed to make your start easier and help you find your way around
  • Three-day introduction seminar focusing on such topics as communications and team-building as well as presentation techniques and rhetoric
  • One-week follow-up experiential-education seminar at the end of the first year of training
  • Annual excursion for apprentices / trainees
  • Interesting apprentice / trainee projects during the training, e.g. while supporting our outlets, organising the ski race and much more.
  • Placement abroad for all occupations lasting several weeks at our affiliated companies in Europe
  • Support with preparations for final exams if necessary
  • Additional social benefits, e.g. contributions to travelling expenses, free working clothes and safety shoes, fitness programme, company pension scheme and a large range of products at our canteens and our outlet, and much more.
  • Company party / Christmas party and traditional Hügli ski race as annual highlights


Each dish needs some fine adjustments – the first attempts at cooking soups or preparing desserts don't always succeed. It doesn't matter how much time you spend in lecture halls and libraries: there's no substitute for practical experience. Placements at Hügli provide you with the opportunity to put what you've learned into practice and establish new contexts.

They don't only provide valuable insights but also help improve the prospects of starting your career successfully after school or university. We want to support you in this regard and always offer placements for school and university students across our operational units at our location in Germany. Please indicate in your application whether the placement is required for your training or education and provide us with a corresponding excerpt from the examination regulations for required placements.

Student assignments

Be it to find out more about careers or within the scope of a course at university – it is becoming increasingly important to find out about the options that are open to you professionally. There is no other environment that provides more ideas, inspiration and motivation for a successful thesis than the practical world. That's why those wishing to exploit all their options to succeed are welcome to work in cooperation with Hügli.

It is our desire to support you – which is why we offer positions for student research projects (bachelor theses, master theses, etc.) across all our operational units at our location in Germany.

Holiday jobs

Of course: you want to relax and recharge your batteries during the school and semester holidays. But how about using some of your spare time to become increasingly independent and be in charge of your own soup? A holiday job at Hügli at one of our locations in Germany or Switzerland would be the ideal recipe to this end.

Please don't forget to indicate the periods in question when submitting your inquiries and to see to the necessary documents in time (particularly social insurance card and health-insurance documentation, school or university certificate of enrollment, tax-identification number).
