Condor Expands Apprenticeship Program to Office Management Assistants at Company Headquarters
This summer, for the first time Condor will open four apprenticeship positions for office management assistants, adding to the longstanding apprenticeship program at Condor Technik, which has been in place since 2009.
On Tuesday (June 15, 2021), Condor announced that for the first time, this summer they will advertise four open apprenticeship positions for office management assistants, thereby adding the company’s Neu-Isenberg headquarters as a new training location in addition to the company’s subsidiary, Condor Technik. Office management assistant training will begin on August 1, 2021 and will last two and a half years. The trainees will primarily work in the Finance, Controlling, Human Resources and Purchasing departments. The company is also planning additional internships in other departments and at Condor Technik.
In Tuesday’s announcement, Condor’s Director of Human Resources, Liana Weismüller, said,
“Qualified employees are an important success factor for every company and personnel development already begins with vocational training and the promotion of young talent. In this way, we gain committed new employees who love flying as much as we do.”
Condor Technik has been training apprentices since 2009 and three new apprentices will start their training as aircraft mechanics on August 23, 2021, expanding the number of apprentices at the Condor subsidiary to 14. The aircraft mechanic apprenticeship lasts three and a half years, starting with a 10 week introductory period, followed by regular shift work. Condor and Condor Technik rely on well-rounded training for qualified young people to develop into specialists in their field. Successful completion of the apprenticeship lays the foundation for further opportunities for career advancement, as the company aims to permanently place the candidates after training.
