#JOESTEAM Dr. Fabian Westbrink Dr. Westbrink, tell us about yourself. My introduction is brief, probably in part because my CV is not particularly long and rather straightforward. I am Fabian Westbrink, 33 years old, born in a suburb of Warendorf and have now been living in Münster for some time. The foundation for my career…
To kick off the pre-Christmas season with our almost 450 employees, all it takes is a bit of decoration, Christmas music, and good spirits! With bratwurst, cookies and punch, the entire #JOESTeam celebrated a small Christmas party over lunch time
First, I would like to introduce myself: I am Jonas Oppermann, now 23 years old and I completed my apprenticeship in January this year. Now I would like to introduce my not-so-ordinary career here at JOEST.
Hey, I’m Robin Tibud. I’m 21 years old and excited to take you with me on my journey through the fascinating world of mechanical engineering, mechatronics, and electrical engineering.
On the occasion of the #JOESTeam day, the Managing Directors Dr. Hans Moormann and Dr. Marcus Wirtz invited all employees
to fresh burger and fries and thus said thank you for their daily commitment, dedication and team spirit.
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.
In mid-November, all employees of JOEST from the company locations Duelmen and Schermbeck were invited by the worker’s council to the works meeting. After an introduction by the chairwoman of the worker’s council Anna Riering and her representative Frank Geilmann, the managing partners Dr. Hans Moormann and Dr. Marcus Wirtz reported on the past fiscal year and the plans for 2023.
Every two years, the Youth and Trainee Representation is elected. With the goal of representing the rights and interests of trainees and young people in the company vis-à-vis the management and department heads, three members are elected for the next two years: Leonie Scheffler as chairwoman supported by Simon Eigen and Jonas Oppermann. The office was gratefully accepted by them all. With motivation and ambition, the team wants to represent the interests of their colleagues in the coming years.
The JOEST Can Do Award was presented for the first time in November 2022. Based on the original company suggestion scheme, the JOEST Can Do Award was introduced for all JOEST employees.
I am Simon Eigen, 21 years old and I started my apprenticeship as an Industrial Clerk at JOEST in Buldern in August 2021. I have been here for one and a half years now and had the chance to experience various departments and their workflows. After my first day of getting to know the company with a tour of the headquarters, I started my apprenticeship in the registry. After 2 months of organizing folder traffic throughout the company, I was reassigned to the reception. This was ideal to get to know my colleagues and their jurisdictions in the company. Having learned about the basic workflows, I then went on to the sales department for foundries. Besides writing offers and order confirmations, I had the opportunity to work on an experiment with aluminum dross at the JOEST Test Center. This was very interesting and gave me the chance to see JOEST machines in action. The two months here passed by very quickly and were followed by the storage facility and quality control on the shop floor.
As always, the new training year starts on August, 1st and the #JOESTeam is happy to welcome eight apprentices this year. The day started in the morning with a guided tour of the factory premises and an introduction to the operational processes. This was followed by a first safety briefing for the newcomers. Exciting years are now beginning for the new apprentices, as they will be passing through different departments in the coming months to get to know the different divisions of the JOEST group as best as possible.
JOEST wishes the aspiring industrial clerks, construction mechanics, product designers and dual students a successful start to their professional lives!
My name is Anna Bettinger, I am 14 years old and I go to the Clemens-Brentano Gymnasium in Duelmen. I did my two-week internship here at JOEST from January 17 to 28, 2022. I really enjoyed the internship, because I kept learning new things and so I never got bored. I chose this internship, because I wanted to know what an office day in marketing looks like and what kind of tasks you have there. I was also interested in how to edit and design websites or how to create flyers or logos, for example. At the beginning, it was quite exhausting to sit all day in front of a screen, but with time I got used to it. My tasks were very diversified and I really enjoyed them. My tasks included, for example, designing a flyer to recruit trainees or editing websites. I had also the chance to help cutting and editing a video.
We congratulate Jan Jasper, Sebastian Krevert, Sandor Heiß and Jannis Flossbach on successfully finishing their apprenticeship! The now former JOEST trainees were trained as construction mechanics in the last few years and have now been taken over in different departments. So they remain part of the #JOESTeam.
On August 2nd, 2021 JOEST welcomed the new training year. After a short welcome by the owner, a guided tour of the factory premises and an introduction to the operational processes as well as a safety briefing, the first working day started in the specific departments. Over the next few months, the soon-to be industrial clerks, technical product designers and design mechanics will pass through the various divisions of the JOEST group. These insights into the various company divisions provide the trainees with the best possible training as competent and committed employees are the basis for success. That is the motto at the JOEST group. JOEST wishes all trainees a successful start to their professional lives!
During that time, I was able to gain a good insight into all areas of an industrial company. The focus was on the commercial areas of course, but an insight into the industrial areas was also included. JOEST sets value on its trainees getting a good overview and understanding the portfolio in order to better identify themselves with the company. I prepared my final report in purchasing, where I was offered a permanent employment in early 2018 after completing the 2,5-year traineeship. Having gained some first experience, I changed to technical sales in mid 2019. Since then, I have been working on Key Account Management in Recycling and Resources. I enjoy assisting our key clients because of the close cooperation as partners and the potential of optimizing client processes.
Just in time for the 100th anniversary of the JOEST group (Duelmen) there is a change in ownership…
Spring is traditionally the time to meet the technical managers of the worldwide JOEST subsidiaries for the Technical Management Meeting.
