ÖBB is preparing for a significant generational change as approximately 20% of its workforce approaches retirement in the coming years.

To address this, the company has launched an ambitious recruitment campaign aiming to hire around 3,500 new employees annually. Over the next few years, this will result in over 17,500 job openings across Austria, marking a significant opportunity for job seekers in the mobility and logistics sector.

"ÖBB has been a crisis-proof and reliable employer for over 100 years," says Andreas Matthä, the CEO of ÖBB. "We are in the middle of the biggest generational change in our history. That is why it is now important to set the course for our future and attract many new talents to ÖBB. We offer meaningful jobs in an industry that is fit for the future because our employees work on innovative and sustainable mobility."

Furthermore, ÖBB is offering 1,600 apprenticeships throughout Austria in various job profiles, including roles like train drivers, train attendants, and dispatchers. These apprenticeships, which start monthly, are ideal for career changers, providing paid training and a pathway to a new profession.
