Zanders has welcomed six new apprentices at the beginning of this training year: new employees will learn the professions of paper technologist, mechatronics engineer and machine and plant operator at the Gohrsmühle paper mill.
Thomas Döring, head of human resources at Zanders, said: ‘As in previous years, we were able to successfully fill all offered apprenticeships.’
Zanders is offering training as a machine and plant operator for the second time this year. The concept proved to be successful, explained Thomas: ‘With the new training, we were able to arouse the interest of young people, for whom a job at a paper producer was previously out of the question. In addition to the industry specific paper technologist, with the mechatronics engineer and the machine and plant operator, we now offer two further trainings that open up new perspectives for young people.’
