Akanur Oflaz

former Trainee at head office

I am completing my training as an office management assistant at the ep headquarters. I pass through various departments. I was given a timetable and list of contents at the beginning of my training. I can see therefore see at a glance how long I will spend in the posts of the individual departments. As a trainee, my sense of duty is required, which I can demonstrate and underline with the aid of varied projects. My area of responsibility is multi-faceted and helps me to confront my strengths and weaknesses. With the ep team and the interfaces to all departments, I can become a special member of the team and improve my skills with the support of my colleagues.

Inka Rudolf, former trainee for office management clerk at the Ulm head office

Inka Rudolf

Trainee until 2020 at head office

During my training as an office management clerk at ep's head office, I got insights into all areas of the company. In each department I was assigned projects that I could work on independently, but if I had questions or problems I could always count on the support of my colleagues. What I particularly liked about ep is that I was given many varied tasks which gradually became an integral part of my daily work. As a trainee you will be integrated into the ep team from the very beginning. The sense of togetherness is enhanced and developed thanks to the numerous company events. Now I work as an assistant in the sales department of the Ulm branch office.
