Training with commercial focus
Are you good at organizing? Do you enjoy written and oral communication? Do you enjoy working in a team? Then an apprenticeship in office management could be the right thing for you. Drees & Sommer offers these apprenticeships with a focus on commercial management and control and as well as secretary work and personal assistance. In collaboration with the IHK (Chamber of Commerce and Industry), Drees & Sommer offers two three-year apprenticeship positions each year.
Our apprentices rotate through various areas of the company, including financial accounting, accounting, IT, secretariat, purchasing, marketing and human resources. During your training, you experience many different tasks such as how to post invoices, order office materials, organize business trips and prepare for and follow-up on meetings.
You spend about four days a week on-site with us and the rest of the time at vocational school, where you learn the basics that you put to practical use with us in everyday work. To qualify for the apprenticeship, you need a General Certificate of Secondary Education or subject-related university entrance qualification (such as GCE A Levels).
Training with technical focus
Or are you more interested in technology? If so, perhaps becoming a “Technical system planner – specializing in supply and equipment technology” is more your thing. During the apprenticeship, you learn how to prepare technical drawings based on specifications from engineers and models for the production and assembly of building services plant & equipment.
You will learn to prepare installation plans and diagrams for supply technology plant & equipment in the areas heating, ventilation and plumbing. In the course of your training you will work increasingly independently, thus supporting the project team and project leader with design and organizational tasks. During your training you will have the opportunity to see first-hand how a building takes shape – from the first sketch to occupation by the users. You don’t only work at a desk, but also “out” on the building site.
You go to vocational school for several weeks at a time for full-time block instruction. You then put the knowledge gained at vocational school to practical use with us in the company. To qualify for the apprenticeship, you need a General Certificate of Secondary Education or a general or subject-related university entrance qualification (such as GCE A Levels). The apprenticeship lasts for 3.5 years.Deadline for applications: Apprenticeships start on September 1 each year. Where possible, applications should be submitted a year in advance. Please feel free to submit a complete application comprising a cover letter, resume and certificates via our online application system. Please also include your school certificates and references from internships or extra-mural activities. You can find current vacancies in our job market.
