The course of training is simple to explain: The school-based part of the vocational training is taught in the form of block lessons at the “Geno-Kolleg” in Münster. The rest of the time is spent in the office. You are given responsible tasks and you can also participate in various project work.
I definitely recommend an apprenticeship at Venneker because the training is very diverse and varied. You are involved in the day-to-day business right from the start, everyone is willing to listen and every question, no matter how simple, is answered. You immediately become part of the big Venneker family!
My advice to future applicants is to definitely apply to the Venneker Group, even if you don’t necessarily come from the agricultural sector. Background is not a precondition for a good apprenticeship here. The enthusiasm for the work comes by itself and makes you burn for Venneker at the latest.
For me, Venneker is a family-run company with a view to the future. The EMAS certification shows that Venneker is not only looking ahead in terms of the environment, but is also constantly optimizing many other areas. The development of the trainees here in the company is promoted individually, among other things through various seminars or internal workshops. The working atmosphere at Venneker is great. The staff is open-minded and helpful, and you immediately feel welcome. Joint events, the weekly barbecue and much more strengthen our team spirit. TEAM is very important here.
Due to the change of departments, you get many interesting impressions of the different areas and understand the interrelationships in the company even better. All trainees have regular feedback meetings in which they discuss with their trainers what is already going well and where there is still room for improvement. This exchange is particularly helpful for personal and professional development.
In the interview, you should remain true to yourself and not pretend under any circumstances. I can also recommend going into the interview relaxed and open-minded and preparing well beforehand.
