Large Crowds at SPITZKE’s Apprentice Day

SPITZKE’s SE fourth Apprentice Day took place on February 19th at the railway infrastructure’s company headquarters in GVZ Berlin Sud.

“Experience SPITZKE up close” – was the motto of this year’s series of events where SPITZKE informed young people and their parents about the diverse training opportunities within the company group which has more than 2,300 employees and consistently continues its commitment to the region. In addition to guided tours through the 5,600 m² factory workshop at the main site and visits to SPITZKE’s technology park, there were also numerous stations where anyone interested could find out about career prospects at SPITZKE. Moreover, many SPITZKE employees and apprentices kept this day free so they could answer the visitor’s many questions about apprenticeships at SPITZKE.

Tobias Borstel didn’t pass up the opportunity either. The mayor of Großbeeren dropped in for a lively discussion during the event. He had discussions with Jenny Malter, Head of the SPITZKE AKADEMIE, Christian Krippahl, HR Director, as well as with some of our apprentices about SPITZKE’s commitment to the career prospects of young people in the region.

“Recruiting young people is one of the core issues in our industry,” says Christian Krippahl looking back on the event. “In order to inspire young people to start a career in the railway system, we believe it’s important to experience this working environment up close and to show all the various career prospects. In addition to the amount of positive feedback on Apprentice Day, we are now looking forward to the upcoming conversations with young people who expressed their interest in an apprenticeship at SPITZE and handed in their applications.”
