Zanders continues to invest in its personal future and welcomes six new employees at the beginning of the new training year: two apprentices each will learn the professions of paper technologist, mechatronics engineer and machine and plant operator at Gohrsmühle mill.
Zanders is offering the apprenticeship as a machine and plant operator for the first time in order to make the training offer more attractive and flexible.
Thomas Döring, Head of Human Resources at Zanders: "The aim of the new training is to arouse the interest of young people who were previously not interested in working for a paper producer. In addition to the industry-specific paper technologist, with the mechatronics engineer and the machine and plant operator we can now offer two trainings, which will open up new perspectives for young people."
The application process for 2019 has already begun and in all three apprenticeships there are several places to be allocated, said Döring.
