Safran Vectronix as an employer


Working at Safran Vectronix

We cultivate an informal working climate which is characterized by the self-responsibility of each team member.
This positive working climate and our friendly, cooperative work relationships are supported by the Employee Council's right in involvement, say and decision.

Flexible work times

Our work time model is based on the Collective Work Agreement of the Swiss Machine Industry and offers employees and company likewise high flexibility in modeling their work times. We work 40 hours per week. Taking into account customer requirements and team work, our employees arrange their work times independently.

According to your age, we offer you 5 to 6 weeks vacation per year; in addition there are a number of bridge-over days that must, however, be compensated individually. If you plan a long-term project, as for example further education or a world trip, you may "save" overtime to take a sabbatical at a later point.

Training and further education

Each and every one is responsible for her or his own development.
We see ourselves as partners in our employees' further development by encouraging professional education. Employee education starts on the job and is complemented by external seminars and – if required – in extensive further education. Out of a predefined annual budget, we support many of our employees.


As a member of the "libs - Industrielle Berufslehren Schweiz", we enable the creation and preservation of numerous high-quality apprenticeships.



We all are directly involved in the company's accomplishment. On top of our salaries, we get a participation based on Safran Vectronix's success.
