Germany: Nordic Yards to Hire 40 New Apprentices Next Year

Nordic Yards, manufacturer of technologically sophisticated and innovative special ships and maritime structures, will hire 40 new apprentices next year. They will start in three different job types in Wismar and Warnemünde in September 2012.

At the same time, the company will also offer contracts to almost all former apprentices who have successfully passed their examinations. They will be given permanent contracts. In 2011, 41 young people started training with Nordic Yards.

We have already decided that we will hire 20 apprentices in Warnemünde and 20 apprentices in Wismar next year. This gives us ample time to look for young talents and attract the best of them to our shipbuilding yards. We look forward to meeting many interested candidates for the plant and construction mechanic as well as parts finisher trainings“, says Björn Cleven, Head of HR at Nordic Yards.

Well-trained core staff is a key prerequisite for completing technologically challenging orders – such as ice-breaking ships or offshore projects“, stresses Fred G. Wegener, Technical Dockyard Director.

Dedicated instructors and experienced colleagues teach our young colleagues their new craft. This in-depth training has helped all past apprentice generations in our company to earn good grades in their final examinations“, Björn Cleven continues.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
