The professional apprenticeship contract is the most commonly used contract model at our company.
New employees to be integrated into the company as station managers, train drivers, train managers, technical managers, maintenance experts (for railway infrastructure), rail traffic controllers or maintenance experts (for rolling stock) are generally hired under a professional apprenticeship contract.
Employees may be hired under this type of contract if they are aged between 18 and 29 and meet the physical requirements set by FS Italiane for each of the planned professional roles.
The duration of the contract is comprised of two periods:
- a first period of 18 months for all professional levels;
- a second of varying duration depending on the professional level.
