  • “As a working student at LEONI you can take on a variety of tasks to get to know your area in depth. The terms, for example the salary and the vacation allowance, are extremely attractive for students in particular. The most important thing for me though is that I always feel that I am being treated as a fully valued member of staff. We communicate as peers and if I have any questions, I know that my contact partner will always welcome me. For me, this makes an extremely important contribution to a pleasant working atmosphere.”
