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.
