As a company with a real sense of tradition, we at KUKA regard it as a matter of course for every colleague to be encouraged and supported in their personal and professional development. It's important for our employees to maintain a healthy work/life balance – and therefore boosting productivity throughout our entire workforce.

Flexible working opportunities

If at any point our employees feel their work life balance is becoming difficult to manage, we can provide help and support to ensure we build a routine suitable for their needs. We understand that, at some time throughout working lives, employees may wish to work more flexibly, and as a modern employer we are more than happy to oblige. All employees with 26+ weeks’ service have the right to apply for flexible working, and there are lots of different ways we can offer flexible working.

At KUKA, we allow our employees to take advantage of flexible working time models such as part-time work or telecommuting. After extensive consultation with our employees, we delivered a Smart Working Policy. We are committed to providing opportunity in employment that seeks to offer employees a modern working environment and alternative working patterns. We are also open to discussing other options as well, to ensure your time at KUKA is as enjoyable as possible - Talk to our experts in the HR team if you would like to find out more before applying to work at KUKA.

KUKA success story: Field Service Engineer, David Wardell

I joined Swisslog in April 2020 as Field Service Engineer after working with Swisslog colleagues in a previous role.  Since then I have installed multiple cranes at various Swisslog customer sites throughout the UK. It’s a great company to work for I really have made some great friends along the way.   I enjoy sharing my experiences and work through LinkedIn, which also helps to generate customer interest.  One of my posts on LinkedIn led to the sale of 3 vertical cranes to a new customer!

Swisslog really do invest in training and I have completed an electrical multi-tasking course, management safety course, site safety management course, working at height course and first aid at height course, to name just a few.  I enjoy taking in part in the training that Swisslog has on offer to develop my current skills and learn new ones.

I love working as a team and being part of the Swisslog family, Swisslog are a key player in Automation and this is all down to the great team work of everyone who works here.  I am excited for the future of Swisslog and it’s great to be part of a successful and growing company.

David Wardell, Field Service Engineer, Swisslog

I’m now involved in training, customer service, conformance and accident investigations. It’s a challenging role, but it’s rewarding, especially since I’m known on site as ‘the man who will always help’!

It’s good to be part of the KUKA group, and I am so thankful for the opportunities my team and the senior managers have given me. Without their faith, training and the shared knowledge, who knows where I would be?
