Bender as an employer – who we are and what is important to us

Outstanding technical know-how and committed working on your own initiative go without saying in our company. Our employees are highly qualified. Modern staff development systems, tailored continuous professional development, targeted succession planning and ongoing knowledge transfer guarantee that this high level of professional expertise will remain above-average in the long term. We know how valuable our employees are to the success of our company and we set great store by retaining staff. We focus particularly on our people, and a sensible work-life balance is very important in our book.

Our corporate culture and the picturesque location of our headquarters in the climatic spa of Grünberg (Hesse) offer ideal conditions to ensure this. At Bender you can work in a location which others come to for recreation, yet the city facilities offered by the Rhine-Main area are only a short distance away. Our exciting mix of a family business, innovativeness and international business keeps us constantly on our toes.

Bender is recognized worldwide as the expert when it comes to electrical safety for power supplies to industrial installations and hospitals. With 700 employees as well as 70 international business partners and subsidiaries, our daily goals are to make a significant contribution to the success of our customers by offering creative solutions and first-class service and to make electricity safe.

To ensure that we can also guarantee our customers this in the long term, we are always on the lookout for experienced specialists, school graduates with an interest in engineering and technology and talented college graduates with a degree in electrical or industrial engineering or information technology. Bender offers you the opportunity to take on a responsible role or receive first-class training within a medium-sized family business.

We thrive on challenges. You too?
We're made for each other!
