Niedersachsen Ports gets 13 new trainees
New workers are reinforcing the sites in Cuxhaven, Emden and Brake
This year, once again, HWG member Niedersachsen Ports (NPorts) welcomed its new trainees on 22 August for their “Trainee Day” at the Oldenburg headquarters. At present, 13 young individuals have begun their work in different fields at sites in Cuxhaven, Emden and Brake. The breadth of their traineeship programs goes from commercial facets like office management to technical aspects like industrial mechanics. In the context of the Trainee Day, they are being officially welcomed into the company. Emily Koop is one of them. She is starting a three year traineeship at NPorts in Cuxhaven to become an electrician for real property and infrastructure systems. For Emily Koop, the traineeship at NPorts is just what she was looking for: “After school, I wanted to do something in the trades. Luckily, I was good in math and physics. That helped me apply for a traineeship at NPorts.”
A sound educational foundation is an important element of success for Niedersachsen Ports. Holger Banik, managing director of NPorts, emphasizes the importance of new workers: “Their skills and ideas mean that trainees give our company a second wind. We all profit from that.” The trainees have the opportunity to complete their own projects. They are intensively supported while doing so, which promotes their personal strengths.
The NPorts Trainee Day takes place once a year and services the purpose of welcoming new employees. But it also provides first impressions and allows for networking. Thus, the trainees have the possibility to get to know all the different business operations at NPorts. The trainees can, furthermore, personally meet management, the management team and the worker’s council and ask them questions. The youth and trainee representatives are also present on site and can introduce themselves.
