Adidas will award over 50 positions for apprenticeships or dual studies in Germany starting this Autumn. In total, Adidas employs around 62,000 people, of which around 7,700 are in Germany. Around 5,300 employees work at the company headquarters in Herzogenaurach.

Adidas is an employer like no other and we go above and beyond every day to create an attractive working environment for our employees. Adidas is fantastic and I can only encourage those interested to apply."
