Sara Rohwedder,
Chemical Engineering Trainee

I live very close to Heide – so the refinery is practically on my doorstep. I learnt about the training opportunities on offer at the refinery’s open house day in summer 2013. I found it very interesting, so I did a one-week work placement later that year in October.

Because I really enjoyed the range of tasks in this field, I applied for a chemical operator traineeship, was accepted, and joined the company on 1 September 2014. It’s exciting to learn about all the processes taking place in the refinery, especially the ones you can’t see from the outside. You need to know what’s going on in the various installations, otherwise you’re in the wrong place. Safety takes number one priority in all this.

From 1 September 2020, we will be offering training for the following professions:

  • Chemical engineer
  • Electronics engineer for automation technology

The deadline for applications is 30 September 2019.

Training for the profession of industrial clerk we will offer in September 2021 again.

The application deadline for training starting 1 September 2019 has expired.
