We support our trainees from the beginning. Balancing theory and practice is of particular importance - regardless of the specific occupation. We place great value on the quality of the training. This also applies in particular to our managers, who not only provide professional support and encouragement, but also to be their role model for social skills.

In order to be able to recruit future specialist and management staff for all our company­ areas, young talent must be promoted within the company not only at all levels, but also in all professional groups. This calls for an interdisciplinary approach, to which all our skilled specialists are committed, to accompany young people in their training on an equal footing.

Would you like to complete your training with us or are you looking for a dual status course?

Training or studying? We offer both at once! In cooperation with the Arnsberg VWA have the opportunity to complete business training in wholesale and foreign trade in conjunction with a dual status Bachelor of Arts degree. You receive qualified training, gain extensive practical experience and gain familiarity with our company organisation and processes. This will prepare you to be able to take on responsibilities independently in your department as soon as you graduate.

FAQ

You have questions!
We give you answers!

What documents do I need for my application?

Please send us all the following:

  • a meaningful cover letter (inc. job reference number)
  • give us your possible start date and your pay expectations
  • your full CV
  • at lease your last three relevant certificates
  • also certificates for any further education or language skills

If you send us all this together in a PDF file with appropriate, meaningful file name, that will make our HR department particularly happy.

Is it OK for me to send an unsolicited application?

Of course! Very happy in fact. Please send us all relevant application documentation, and state the area of business in which you would like to assist us. We then check your fields of application with us and give you feedback. Please allow some time for us to get back to you. And if things don’t work out straightaway, it’s still possible that we could add you to our pool of applicants. Then we will contact you again as soon as we have a suitable job.

When will I receive an answer to my application?

Directly after submitting your application you will receive an automatic response from our mailbox. It will then take some time to look at your application. If there is anything missing, or we still have more questions, we will get in touch with you personally again. However, within 4-6 weeks at the latest, you will receive a final answer from us, whether we can continue considering you within the application process or not.

Can I also send an application by post?

In principle, of course you can also send us written applications by post, but we do ask you to be aware that we cannot return them. For this reason, we do prefer digital application by e-mail, because then we can have most applications quickly and easily available in our system and our processing can be much faster.

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

Unfortunately not, because we need to have an idea of when you would be able to start and what would be a realistic salary for you. We don’t expect absolute precision and can understand your uncertainty, but we cannot continue to consider you in the application process if there is too great a discrepancy with our expectations.

A tip concerning salary: find out what our industry generally pays for the work you expect to be doing. Also make sure that you already have all the required knowledge and skills and how much work experience you have to contribute. Then it shouldn’t be too difficult for you.
