The majority of young people nowadays want to do their bit to protect the planet and create a more sustainable future for themselves and future generations. The result: more and more school leavers are looking to do an apprenticeship at companies that are, at the very least, running a sustainable business or, ideally, actually protecting the environment and tackling climate change. This is exactly what they have found at the RETHMANN Group companies. Whether it be the recycling pioneers at REMONDIS, the modern logistics specialists at Rhenus or at SARIA, the experts for organic by-products and bioenergy, every single job in this Group is making an effective contribution towards making the world a better place to live in.
With this in mind, the RETHMANN Group and its associated businesses have once again made the very most of their apprenticeship capacity and are now training a total of 2,011 young people wishing to make a career for themselves in the areas of environmental and climate protection, nutrition or sustainable logistics. Among this number are the 610 new apprentices who joined this year: 383 at REMONDIS, 204 at Rhenus and 23 at SARIA. As has traditionally been the case, the largest number of apprentices joined REMONDIS, a reflection also of the size of the company. This group of recycling experts alone is training 1,264 young people, who are either in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd year of their apprenticeship course. The ‘Top 3’ apprenticeship jobs at REMONDIS are truck drivers (338 apprentices), industrial management assistants (147 apprentices) and office management assistants (120 apprentices).
The traditional welcome party was held in the reception area of the company’s head office building at the Lippe Plant under the patronage of the honorary chairman of the supervisory board, Norbert Rethmann, on 01 August 2019. 88 young people due to start one of 15 different apprenticeships were invited to attend the event on behalf of all the others. They were welcomed by Norbert Rethmann and Frank Dohmen, managing director and head of HR at REMONDIS. During his speech, Norbert Rethmann stressed just how important it is to have young people committed to safeguarding the future of the planet and encouraged the apprentices present to support their local communities beyond their professional lives as well.
Young people are raising awareness of climate change. Concrete solutions as to how to stop global warming have yet to be found.
Frank Dohmen underlined the importance of offering high quality apprenticeships to counteract the current skills shortage and reiterated his belief that all those joining REMONDIS and its sister companies have excellent career prospects. These young professionals were then taken on a tour around the site in Lünen to see for themselves just how big this industrial recycling centre actually is. The fact that this site alone cuts carbon emissions by 488,000 tonnes a year is further proof that they made the right decision joining the RETHMANN Group.
