Schindler International Assignments

International Careers

Schindler is a global player that requires highly talented and internationally mobile managers capable of working in any part of our business at any location. International assignments are a key part of people development at Schindler. We offer you the opportunity to develop your talents in an international career with the potential to progress to upper management. 

International Managers and assignments have always played a key role in our success. However, the way our global workforce is sourced, organized and managed is changing radically. Growth in emerging markets has increased the need for companies to move people and source talent from around the world. 

Global Environment

In today’s global village our colleagues, clients and business partners have different national, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. In this environment, you are a very valuable asset to every employer if you have international work experience.

At Schindler, you can build a portfolio of challenging international management assignments in any one of over 100 countries or 1000 networks across the globe.

An international assignment will give you the opportunity to develop your international capabilities by dealing with a different culture, work ethic, business etiquette and lifestyles on a daily basis.
