On the occasion of the first apprentice day, the doors opened for many potential new apprentices.
We had about 400 visitors that day, 184 of whom were potential new apprentices. The visitors could learn something about the company during on of the company tours.
Hello, my name is Jonas Leufke, I am 22 years old and completed my 3-year apprenticeship as an Industrial Clerk at JOEST this year. After my apprenticeship I was hired by JOEST and am now part of the accounting team. An apprenticeship at JOEST offers a large variety of everything! I got to know 14 different departments on my way to becoming an Industrial Clerk. This gives you complete insight into an entire company and its processes from storage to controlling. A great help is the trust put forward by the colleagues: You don’t only scratch the surface. Instead, you look deep into specialized tasks of a department by yourself.
My name is Leonie, and I started my apprenticeship as an Industrial Clerk with JOEST in August 2019. After the first few formalities, I started my training at the reception. Here I built my first connections with various departments and learned about the correspondence with national and international clients, in written form and via telephone. During my apprenticeship I passed through different departments such as Accounting, HR, Sales, Marketing, Purchasing and many more. They gave me deep insight into the different processes and how they overlap. From the first day on, I received challenging tasks that I could work on by myself. If I ever had any questions, I could always count on my colleagues.
Eleven members, all JOEST employees, now form the new Work Council. From now on, they will represent the interests of your colleagues in front of the management. The collaboration on and drafting of work agreements as well as their coordination are also among the tasks of the Work Council team. The whole #JOESTeam wishes you a lot of success in the execution and implementation of the new tasks and thanks for the commitment.
