With 2,300 SPAR trainees currently working in Austria and 1,000 in the other ASPIAG countries, SPAR is Austria's largest private training company. In addition to numerous benefits such as bonuses of over €4,500, free driving lessons and exciting additional training courses, SPAR Austria offers many secure career opportunities.

‘Secure jobs with a bright future’ is more than SPAR Austria’s slogan, it is what SPAR stands for. The SPAR Austria Group is a Central European trading company offering steady jobs and numerous career opportunities in the retail sector with training in the following areas: retail trade, catering, bakery and IT. In 2019, the SPAR Partner plans to employ 900 new trainees, after they have completed training in one of the 21 positions the company offers.

At the SPAR Academy, practical work is an important part of all training programmes. As such, SPAR Austria continues to develop its course offering by integrating additional training courses into the curriculum, such as certified cheese accreditations, fairtrade ambassador trainings, organic food courses, and green energy programmes.

After completing their training, the young SPAR employees have countless opportunities for a successful career, evidenced by the fact that many of today’s SPAR regional managers were once trainees of the SPAR Academy.
