Seven Lünen-based companies kept their doors open until 11pm on 23 September to welcome young people to their businesses. This “Apprenticeship Evening”, an annual event, provides the visitors with an opportunity to take a closer look at what the companies have to offer in a relaxed atmosphere. REMONDIS took part as always to present some of the professions offered by the recycling sector to all those visiting its Lippe Plant.
This year, REMONDIS set up a number of information booths to showcase twelve different apprenticeships. What became apparent to everyone was just what a promising future the recycling sector has to offer and just how diverse it is – with the professions varying from professional truck driver and plant operator, to chemical laboratory assistant (with the Umwelt Control Labor specialists putting on some spectacular experiments), all the way through to commercial apprenticeships and higher apprenticeships (apprenticeship + BA/BSc course). The young people, most of who will soon be leaving school, had the opportunity to talk to REMONDIS’ trainers as well as to find out more from those currently doing an apprenticeship at the company.
Many of the 500+ visitors had brought their CV with them and REMONDIS’ HR experts were on hand to give them some valuable tips on how best to present their qualifications and documents. Moreover, they were even able to try out the complex recruitment tests for the various apprenticeships. An entertainment programme was also organised alongside all this important theory with, for example, the REMONDIS Recycling Professionals putting on their show and the ever popular garbage truck simulator. Those with a head for heights were given the opportunity to go to the top of a scaffold tower – erected by the specialists working at REMONDIS’ subsidiary XERVON – to view the illuminated Lippe Plant from up high.
Everyone agreed that the evening was a great success. “There was a whole range of different people here this evening. It was great to see that young people are interested in doing an apprenticeship at REMONDIS, no matter what type of secondary school they go to. Those that do eventually decide to carve out a career for themselves in one of these many possible professions will not only have great job prospects but will also be helping to drive sustainability and protect the environment,” commented Kristina Rehahn, a personnel officer at REMONDIS. She very much hopes to see their faces again on the cover pages of the applications being sent to the company.
