Corporate Trainee Innovation Center

Why are we proud of what we do at allnex? We create coatings, products which help protect the world for all nex>t generations – and that’s exactly what you can do joining us!

Imagine how fast your smartphone would become scratched-up, ugly and unusable without a coating. Or an e-bike, the cabin of a train, a beautiful wooden floor, and countless other things in life.


Making objects and their surfaces more attractive and longer-lasting means making them more sustainable, and that’s a huge part of what working at allnex is about. No matter which role you step into, you’ll become part of a global team of passionate people who care deeply about the chemistry, quality, and global impact of coatings.

You’ll also join a highly multicultural and diverse team of more than 4,000 employees in four regions who – as part of one of the world’s leading coating resins companies – serve customers in over 100 countries across the globe.
