In Metsä Tissue’s Düren, Kreuzau and Raubach mills, around 60 trainees are trained in craft, technology and administration annually. The training courses are practice-oriented and diverse and the learning program is structured in terms of time and subject. After a well-organized introduction to the program and fellow trainees, the trainees take on suitable, independent activities in their teams. To do this, they have qualified instructors by their side providing in-house training and intercompany courses.

“We are proud to be able to offer apprenticeships to young talents at our mills in Germany. This way we can give them opportunities to become familiar with the tissue industry and to find new talent to our mills. Currently we are filling positions for the upcoming 2022 season, and the application round has already started. We look forward to the new applicants and we are particularly proud that our employees recommend Metsä Tissue to their families,” says Simone Klein, Vice President Human Resources Western Europe, Metsä Tissue.

With its responsible corporate culture, Metsä Tissue sees great importance in ensuring that tomorrow's professionals receive high-quality training. Young people should be able to develop their career towards responsible decision-makers in the company with a promising future. Metsä Tissue ensures cross-generational on-site employment in the regions with Metsä Tissue mills.

Last-minute applicants have good prospects of starting their training just in time in September. For students graduating in 2022, now is the right time to apply for vacant internships and apprenticeships.
