Zanders has welcomed six new apprentices at the beginning of this training year: two new employees each 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: “Asin previous years, we were able to successfully fill all offered apprenticeships.” This shows that Zanders is still regarded as an attractive employer and that the company continues to invest in his personal future, says Döring. Zanders offerstraining as a machine and plant operatorforthe second time this year. The concept proves to be successful, explains Döring: “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.”
