A career for every taste

Training at IBIS

Right in the middle instead of just being there, that could be the motto of our trainees. An apprenticeship in which many things are explained and our trainees are given their own tasks. Taking on responsibility and receiving comprehensive support; this way, IBIS trainees can apply many of the things they learn at school in practice and gain exciting experiences.

From number crunching in controlling, route planning with colleagues in order management, store checks in sales to meetings and customer appointments.

Be a part of it and apply now for the training year 2023!

These are our trainees in the current training year 2021/22:

As a trainee always in the middle of the action, for example during a print approval with our Packaging Team at Smurfit Kappa

Management assistant in wholesale and foreign trade

Training as a wholesale and foreign trade clerk at IBIS usually takes 3 years and is based on the dual system. It can be shortened due to good academic performance at vocational school and in the company. This is usually done in consultation with the trainee, as both sides must be prepared for this. You will go through all departments to understand processes and interrelationships, but also to find out where your strengths lie.

You have good prerequisites for the profession as a wholesale and foreign trade merchant if you have the following interests and skills:

  • An affinity for mathematics and you like dealing with numbers.
  • Good feeling for German, English and possibly other foreign languages
  • Good verbal and written expression and understanding of texts
  • sociability, communicative skills, negotiation skills, assertiveness if necessary
  • Commercial thinking
  • Customer and service orientation - friendliness and good manners
  • Planning and organizing gives you pleasure
