Your educational training

After three years with us, you will become a business professional in "Trusts". If you are motivated and meet the requirements, you can then aspire to study for the Swiss Vocational Baccalaureate for commercial professions.
Your expertise will be gained directly through practical experience - therefore you will work and you learn in various departments. As our Swiss locations are sometimes quite diverse, your own learning path will always be a little different, depending on your particular location. But one thing will never change: the high-calibre education you receive. Our experienced vocational trainers from the various teams will accompany and support you along the way.

Human Capital

This involves the basic processes of human resources management, from recording new employees on the payroll via SAP, to the creation of employment contracts.


Our teams in this field are working on future-oriented topics in human resource management, for example on the design of modern payroll systems, systematic staff recruitment, or on confidence-building measures for the workforce in difficult times.

Trust department

Our CAS teams deal with the question of how to optimally organise accounting systems and payroll accounting. Our clients include companies from all over Switzerland, from one-man businesses up to large corporations. We advise, implement software solutions, and offer support according to the needs of each client.

Internal Audit

Our internal accounts department oversees all financial matters and ensures that debit and credit accounts are reconciled.


This demands an eye for detail. Our auditors assist audit teams working with clients, and will independently examine different features of the annual accounts under the microscope. Contact with clients is an everyday occurrence, so a responsible and friendly manner is a prerequisite.
