Apprenticeships

Secure your
future!

We support our young talent right from the start. We think it’s really important to strike the right balance between theory and practice during every apprenticeship. We place great value on the quality of our training. This is reflected by our managers, who offer technical support and encouragement for young professionals and act as role models with inspirational communication skills.

As we want to ensure a continuous wealth of specialists and managers across our divisions, we have to promote young talent at all levels – and in all occupations – within our company. That’s why all our specialists are fully committed to guiding young people through their apprenticeships in an interdisciplinary manner without expressing their superiority.

Would you like to start an apprenticeship or a work and study programme at our company?

APPRENTICE FILM CHALLENGE

Our apprentices offered an inside look at their training at ISM as part of the “Apprentice Film Challenge” run by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK). Their film was ranked in the top 5 – we’re delighted with the amazing result!

Study

Work and study
at ISM

Apprenticeship or university study? We offer both at once! Thanks to our cooperation with the Academy of Business and Administration in Arnsberg, young people with a high school leaving certificate (Abitur) can undertake a business apprenticeship in wholesale and foreign trade while studying for a Bachelor of Arts. You’ll receive high-quality training, gain a broad range of practical experience and learn all about our company’s organisation and processes, allowing you to independently tackle new tasks in your own department as soon as you graduate.

FAQ

You’ve got questions.
We’ve got the answers!

What documents do I need for my application?

Please always provide the following information:

  • A detailed cover letter (incl. job reference number)
  • Indicate when you can start working and how much you expect to earn
  • Your full CV
  • At least your last three relevant certificates
  • You’re welcome to include any other qualifications or language skills

If you send us all this together as a PDF with an appropriate file name, you’ll make our HR department really happy.

Do you also accept unsolicited applications?

Of course! In fact, we’d love to hear from you. Please send us all your relevant application documents and indicate the area in which you would like you work. We’ll check whether there’s any vacancies for you at our company and let you know. Please give us enough time to process your application. And if things don’t work out straight away, we can always add you to our pool of applicants and get in touch as soon as something comes up.

When can I expect a response?

As soon as you submit your application, you’ll receive an automatic reply from our mailbox. We will then need some time to look through your application. If anything is missing or unclear, we’ll get in touch. We’ll let you know whether you’ve made it to the next stage of the application process within 4-6 weeks.

Can I send my application in the post?

You’re more than welcome to send a written application in the post, but please note that we won’t be able to return any documents to you That’s why we prefer to receive digital applications via email, allowing us to quickly and efficiently access most of the applications in our system and speeding up the application process.

Can I leave out the information about my salary expectations and notice period?

Unfortunately not, because we need an idea of when you’d be able to start and how much you’d realistically expect to earn. We don’t expect pinpoint accuracy and can understand that you’re feeling a little unsure about providing this information, but we sadly can no longer consider your application if our expectations don’t match.

Before indicating your salary expectations, you should find out what our industry generally pays for the work. You should also make sure that you have all the necessary knowledge, skills and professional experience. If you tick all the boxes, you shouldn’t find the application process too difficult.
