Holiday jobs - The clever way to afford your next vacation.

A holiday job with Mercedes-Benz is more than just a way to earn some cash. We offer school pupils and students the chance to get acquainted with the structures and working practices of a global organization. And to get paid good money while doing so.

You'll learn what it's like to work in a professional environment and be part of a team. Maybe you will discover new career aspirations. There are a wide range of tasks in different areas of our business.

Most holiday jobs with the Mercedes-Benz Group are in technical and manufacturing departments. You'll need to have good written and spoken German language skills and also be:

  • at least 18 years old
  • a pupil or a student
  • or in the bridging period to start an apprenticeship, federal voluntary service/voluntary military service or your studies.

The duration varies from one site to another but is at least four to eight weeks. The working week is generally 35 or 39 hours. The pay depends on the department in which you are deployed.
