They truly are impressive numbers and would certainly appear to point towards a future in which the structural transformation of the economy has been a complete success. The RETHMANN Group companies are once again meeting their responsibilities this year, training a total of 1,936 young people in a variety of modern professions. 611 of these apprentices joined the Group this year. They have all made a good choice as the recycling, water, industrial and municipal services sectors as well as logistics and the bio-industry all have a strong future.
The recycling sector has taken on an important role in the German economy and is creating many new jobs. More than 250,000 people already work in this industry today helping the country to achieve a more sustainable future and generating a total turnover across the country of around 70 billion euros. This development is also reflected in the apprenticeship figures at the RETHMANN Group. 380 of the new apprentices took their first step towards their new career at REMONDIS, the largest of the three sister companies, this August – more than ever before. Rhenus welcomed 212 new apprentices and SARIA nineteen. They have been able to choose from around 50 different professions, all of which will give them a strong position in the job market in the future – from the fields of chemical, motor and environmental technology, to commerce, IT, electronics and industrial metal engineering, all the way through to logistics and a variety of craftsmanship skills.
Norbert Rethmann, honorary chairman of the supervisory board, welcomes the new apprentices to REMONDIS’ head office
Training to become a professional truck driver heads the list of the Top 3 professions at REMONDIS with a total of 293 apprentices. It has become a tradition to invite the new apprentices to REMONDIS’ head office and this year was no exception. On 29 July, they travelled to Lünen where they were welcomed to the company by Norbert Rethmann, honorary chairman of the supervisory board, and Frank Dohmen, Head of HR. Norbert Rethmann sketched an optimistic picture of the future, emphasising just how important the recycling sector is becoming – and not only for Germany but for the whole of our planet. The recycling, water and logistics sectors will all find themselves playing an increasingly vital role as the world’s population steadily increases and the need to conserve natural resources and curb global warming continues to grow. All those, who choose to carve out a career for themselves in one of these industries, will be able to drive sustainable development and environmental protection and have a great opportunity to enjoy a long and fulfilling career.
Recycling, water and services are all growth industries with a strong future.
Frank Dohmen, Head of HR at REMONDIS since the beginning of the year, also stressed just how many apprentices were taken on by this family-run company once they finished their course. More than 70 percent of all apprentices join REMONDIS as specialists in their field after successfully passing their final exams.
