More than 150 young people start their professional career in Nagel-Group

Versmold, August 3, 2021 – More than 150 young people will start their vocational training throughout Germany in Nagel-Group during 2021. In total, around 550 young people are currently completing their apprenticeship at Nagel-Group in Germany, in a wide range of vocational training positions.


“Nagel-Group apprenticeships can be summed up as versatile and multi-faceted. We provide a wide range of vocational training, placing particular emphasis on a well-grounded and practical start. This is the cornerstone of quality apprenticeship,” emphasises Christian Bleiker.

Nagel-Group’s vocational training puts the apprentices through all the areas relevant to their apprenticeship and for successful qualification. Practical experience is backed up by theory from vocational school or university. Nagel-Group offers apprentices many different career prospects after they have completed their vocational training, and Nagel-Group places great store in promoting young talent.

A total of 26 of the trainees are starting a new phase in their lives at the Borgholzhausen and Versmold sites – their vocational training. For 13 of these apprentices, this starts with a 2-day introductory event at the Versmold site. This is where the apprentices get to know Nagel-Group as a company and, above all, the people who will accompany them in the coming years. This will also include information on important topics concerning their vocational training. Christian Bleiker, Executive Director HR & Legal, the works council and the People Development department will welcome the guests.

The introductory event is designed to cater for four prospective forwarding and logistics services employees, one IT systems integration specialist, two IT systems management employees, one car body and vehicle construction mechanic as well as five dual study Bachelor of Arts (FH) students specialising in business administration and business information technology. One feature of the event is that they all independently gather information in the form of a rally across the company premises, and in the process get to know the Versmold site and the company that will be training them.

Jasmin Fellhölter (dual student Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration) and Eric Brohl (IT specialist for system integration), reported on their experiences in the first year of training at the end of the introductory event to get the new trainees in the mood for their path into the professional world. “One of the highlights for me was that I was able to work on tasks and projects independently right from the start of the apprenticeship”, Jasmin Fellhölter told us.

“As one of the largest training companies in the region, it is important to us that our new apprentices feel at home here from day one and that they have an exciting and, above all, successful training period overall. And if they then see their future in Nagel-Group after successfully completing their vocational training, we will have achieved our goal together,” reports Silvia Naschert, training manager at Versmold.
