Using a VR headset to take a walk through a scrap metal facility, reversing a lorry correctly in a collection truck simulator or trying out the recruitment test that an industrial management assistant would have to take – there was plenty on hand to entertain the visitors to this year’s ‘Lünen Apprenticeship Evening’. The company’s current apprentices had set up individual stands in front of REMONDIS’ head office to provide information about 16 different apprenticeships offered by the company. The friendly atmosphere made everyone feel really welcome and a presenter had been brought in to entertain the visitors and bring a smile to their faces.
It was clear that the evening was going to be a success the moment the event started at 6pm. “The first shuttle bus arriving from the city centre was absolutely packed. The stands have been busy non-stop since then,” commented apprenticeship manager, Kristina Rehahn. The dry weather and mild temperatures meant that many of the schoolchildren travelled to the Lippe Plant by bike. This year, REMONDIS was joined by teams of apprentices from TSR, Wirtschaftsbetriebe Lünen, Xervon and Buchen, UCL, the IT services div-ision and the Lippe Plant’s own fire brigade.
“The majority of the people visiting us were really well prepared and knew exactly which apprenticeships they were interested in.”

The young visitors were able to put all their questions to the many apprentices and trainers at the event – who were easy to spot thanks to their high-vis vests. “The majority of the people visiting us were really well prepared and knew exactly which apprenticeships they were interested in,” Kristina Rehahn continued. She was really happy with the way this year’s Lünen Apprenticeship Evening went, with the company welcoming even more visitors than last year.
