Apprenticeship and employment-accompanying studies

We think about the future – with you

We train our apprentices.
Finally: School is almost over and you have (as good as) your leaving certificate in your pocket. But what comes next?

An apprenticeship in the Mahnke Group will open up a lot of chances and opportunities for you because we back on well-founded vocational training and support persons who are young and curious when they make a start in their working life.

With us you can complete an apprenticeship as business person in wholesale and retail trade, special field wholesaling, or an apprenticeship as business person for forwarding and logistics.

The apprenticeship lasts three years and starts on 1st August of each year. In certain cases (for persons having an adequate qualification) shortening of the period to two years is possible.
As an apprentice you will be working actively, will increase your self-sufficiency and – via your own successes – solidify what you have learnt. The training is carried out in co-operation with local public training programmes. In addition we offer our apprentices a weekly English course. Towards the end of their apprenticeship our apprentices have the opportunity to come together as a learning group once a week and in the final phase of your apprenticeship you will take part in an examination preparation course.
In our monthly apprenticeship café we meet together with all the apprentices. Here we discuss general matters and also specially worked-out themes in connection with the apprenticeship. In addition to all these offers we go on an outing together once a year. In one year this might be a visit to a works or other enterprise while in another year we might visit a trade fair.

During the complete period of your apprenticeship a member of the human resources department will be available for you as a personal contact.

You would like to obtain a further qualification after your apprenticeship?
We will be pleased to support you in this.
Employment-accompanying studies represent a special challenge requiring a lot of self-discipline and commitment.
We will be pleased to work out together with you an individual further-training model matched to you and your situation.
Perhaps you would like to reduce your working hours during the period of your studies or need financial support for your studies?
Let us talk about it!
