The big day was on 17 May 2014: Robert Ristow, managing director of EURAWASSER Nord GmbH, attended the “TOP Training Company” awards ceremony to receive the company’s certificate and award from Claus Ruhe Madsen, President of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) in Rostock.

”It is a great honour for us to receive this award again. This underlines our many years of commitment to training young people and sends out a clear signal to potential trainees and apprentices that we offer high quality and practically relevant training courses as well as excellent career prospects. Whilst many businesses are having to cope with fewer applications, our strong reputation has meant that our application num-bers have remained stable and, in some cases, even increased,“ commented Robert Ristow. Each year, the Chamber of Commerce awards the title, ”TOP Training Company“, to businesses in recognition of their efforts to train young people. The ”TOP Training Company“ award is a great advertisement for the excellent training opportunities on offer in the region. To be able to qualify for the award, the Chamber of Commerce takes a close look at the companies, concentrating on aspects such as bespoke help given to apprentices, career prospects after their apprenticeship has finished and general support offered by the firms.

EURAWASSER Nord GmbH – which supplies drinking water and treats wastewater on behalf of the City of Rostock and a further 76 neighbouring districts – teaches around 20 apprentices every year. It offers seven very different apprenticeship courses helping those taking part to become industrial electronics engineers, specialists for wastewater technology, specialist water supply technicians, industrial clerks, IT spe-cialists for applications development, specialists for con-structing sewer networks or pipe specialists. The appren--tices at EURAWASSER Nord are involved in the business right from the very beginning and learn all about the latest state-of-the-art technology relevant to their course.
EURAWASSER Nord GmbH has committed itself to taking on all their apprentices who have done well in their course, initially for a period of 12 months. Moreover, apprentices who have been particularly successful are given a grant if they wish to study and professional support by enabling them to do internships. Apprentices that are taken on after their apprenticeship have the opportunity to do a three-month internship abroad at one of the companies in the REMONDIS Aqua Group to learn more about the business. ”Our plan – namely to ensure we can cover our personnel requirements with qualified and motivated employees trained by ourselves – is proving to be a success: Seven of our eight apprentices, who finished their course in 2012, now have a permanent contract of employment with our company,“ commented Robert Ristow.
The apprentices are paid in accordance with the collective wage agreements and receive additional allowances for travel, accommodation and learning materials. ”I’m really pleased that I decided to do an apprenticeship at EURAWASSER Nord,“ said Filip Jahnke, who has been working at the company for several weeks now having successfully completed his apprenticeship to become a specialist for wastewater technology. The new apprenticeship year has just begun – EURAWASSER Nord has welcomed six new apprentices to its company.
