Active and forward-looking personnel development programmes. These are becoming an essential tool as companies compete with each other to attract young talent to their business. The RETHMANN Group companies would appear to have got it right here with 665 young people joining the group this year – the highest intake of apprentices ever. 30 more apprentices than last year and so many people taking their first step towards their future career in one of the many interesting and future-oriented professions. Indeed, the variety of apprenticeship courses available at the RETHMANN Group is one of the reasons that sets it apart from the others.
Both the turnover and the employment figures of the recycling, logistics and bioindustry sectors underline just how important these industries are for our economy today: generating an annual turnover of around 76 billion euros, the recycling sector provides approximately 300,000 people in Germany alone with a secure job – and a job with great future prospects. Being the largest of the three sister companies, REMONDIS offers a wide range of commercial, industrial and technical apprenticeship jobs covering over 30 different professions. 408 young people joined this global recycling, service and water company to start their apprenticeship on 01 August this year. All in all, the company is helping a total of 1,216 apprentices to train for their future career.

The company is also taking action to combat the impending skills shortage, as the need for skilled professionals, such as truck drivers, is growing all the time – despite the fact that this profession heads the list of the Top 3 apprenticeship courses at REMONDIS (334 apprentices in all). It is working hard to find new people to take up an apprenticeship job in this profession by offering a variety of measures, such as special induction courses and targeted support to help them prepare for their exams. The apprenticeship course to become an industrial management assistant is in second place (183 apprentices) followed by those trainings to become an office management assistant (112 apprentices). It has become an annual tradition to invite a number of the new apprentices to REMONDIS’ head office and 96 new apprentices starting at REMONDIS and SARIA travelled to Lünen on 01 August this year. Norbert Rethmann, honorary chairman of the supervisory board of the REMONDIS Group, underlined the importance of the work being carried out by the company to protect the environment. He also explained how the firm’s focus on such future-oriented business fields has impacted positively on its overall development. Frank Dohmen, HR Manager at REMONDIS, and Ulrich Stallmann from the works council also congratulated their new colleagues on their start in this growing industry.
Those interested in learning more about the different apprenticeship courses offered by the company should go to its dedicated careers website, remondis-karriere.de. They can also take part in the site’s self-assessment test to discover which types of job best suit their qualifications and potential. What’s more, REMONDIS will be presenting 16 different types of apprenticeships at the 7th Lünen Apprenticeship Evening on 21 September. Potential apprentices can turn up between 6pm and 11pm to learn more about these extremely interesting professions.
