It’s not so easy to go out and save the world “just like that”. Young people can, however, take a great step towards achieving this goal by beginning an apprenticeship at REMONDIS or at one of its sister companies, SARIA and Rhenus. Everything at REMONDIS focuses on sustainability, protecting the environment and conserving our planet’s natural resources. “Being one of the industries of the future, our three fields of business – recycling, services and water management – are all targeted at values such as sustainability, efficiency, resource conservation and climate protection. This makes our company particularly attractive to young people just starting out on their career,” explained REMONDIS board member, Thomas Conzendorf.
Once again, the group has been taking action to counteract the skills shortage by offering a comprehensive apprenticeship programme this year. The fact that it currently has 2,000 apprentices learning a range of approx. 50 different professions effectively speaks for itself. This year, 617 young people have joined the company, one of the largest privately owned businesses in Germany, to do an apprenticeship. The apprenticeship programme offered by REMONDIS, SARIA and Rhenus is particularly important for the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia where some towns have been struggling as their economies have undergone structural change. 100 of the new apprentices alone are based in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Future apprentices get to choose from a long list of professions ranging from motor and environmental technology, to metal, chemistry, IT, logistics, craftsmanship work, mechatronics, electronics and electrotechnology, all the way through to a variety of commercial professions. Looking at the ‘Top 3’ most popular professions, 21 new apprentices are now training to become an automotive mechatronics engineer and 52 to become industrial clerks. The most popular apprenticeship is the course to become a professional truck driver with 92 new apprentices joining the company. “There is a huge demand for specialists in this field and so the apprentices will have an excellent chance of finding a secure job in the future,” Herwart Wilms continued. Indeed the chances of being taken on after any apprenticeship are very high – with the rate currently lying at well over 70 percent.
The chances of being taken on by REMONDIS after an apprenticeship are very high indeed.
Many opportunities are open to apprentices within the company once they finish their course – both to gain further qualifications and to make their way up the career ladder. The apprenticeships themselves are also very interesting and varied, as REMONDIS and its subsidiaries and sister companies offer such as wide range of services and products.
There are currently more than 31,000 people working at REMONDIS.
REMONDIS has already advertised many new apprenticeship jobs for next year’s intake. Those interested can find out more about the positions on offer and hear what current apprentices have to say about their work by going to the REMONDIS Group’s new careers page, remondis-karriere.de. A new video shows a number of apprentices from different fields talking about their job and why they decided to apply to REMONDIS. Young people, who wish to learn more about how their future career at REMONDIS may be, can take the interactive apprentice test. “By assessing their own skills, strengths and interests and answering some questions about what kind of environment they would like to work in, the system is able to short list what professions might suit them best and to present them with a detailed list of suggestions,” explained Kristina Rehahn, head of apprenticeships at REMONDIS. If they decide to apply to REMONDIS, they can then watch a video that explains the group’s application process and also gives some useful tips.
Besides this section for future apprentices, the new careers page also provides information and lists vacancies for university students, graduates and, of course, people looking for a new job. “We have created a central platform with our new careers page that allows people to access the section relevant to them – whether they be a talented young person with the skills to be a future manager or fully qualified specialists with experience of their profession. Whether they be an engineer, IT specialist or logistics and sales expert – everyone is able to find out whether opportunities may be waiting for them at REMONDIS,” commented Alexa Dierks, head of personnel development. At the moment, REMONDIS has more than 31,000 employees carrying out their day-to-day tasks to protect the environment and prevent climate change – responsibly and competently, working for the future.
