Program

During your three-year apprenticeship you will get to know all relevant internal areas. You will gain insights into human resources management, support the personal assistants and secretaries offices, get involved in marketing and event management, be introduced to accounting and work in research.

In each department you have your personal contact person who supports you in your tasks. If you have any questions that relate to your apprenticeship in general, you can always talk to our training supervisor.  
The Ludwig-Erhard-Berufskolleg in Münster provides the theoretical basis for your apprenticeship. Two subjects, namely office and business processes, are mandatory qualifications. For your elective qualifications, you can choose your specialization yourself, whereby assistance and secretarial services is set by us as the second option.

Areas of responsibility

 

  • Human resources management 

In human resources management you will learn about the process of personnel recruitment. You will gain insights into applicant management and take care of dispatching candidate communication. You will also prepare job interviews and observe your colleagues during the interviews. Onboarding, personnel development and personnel support are other areas in which you can get involved. 

  • Assistance and secretaries offices 

During your time in the secretaries offices or as an assistant, everything revolves around communication with our clients. You will be responsible for making appointments, looking after guests and taking care of incoming and outgoing mail. You will also make a lot of phone calls and be involved in the office organization. 

  • Marketing and public relations 

You support your team in internal and external communication. You make internal news available via our intranet and distribute information about internal events to our colleagues. In external communication, you will organize the creation of texts, designs and translations for our corporate website, for the press, our social media channels and client events.  

  • Event management 

Together with your team you will organize seminars, workshops and in-house training classes for our clients, including preparation and follow-up. A particular highlight is the zeb.Uni, a company-wide event that you are allowed to co-organize. 

  • Accounting 

In Accounting, you will deal with incoming and outgoing invoices, both domestic and foreign. You will also find out about accounting for our consultants’ travel expenses and about financial controlling.  

  • Research 

During your time in Research you will gain insights into data analysis and data preparation. You will monitor the development trends on the market and maintain the zeb library to provide the consultants with the latest data.

Testimonial
What have you learned at zeb so far?
During my apprenticeship at zeb, I learned that – no matter which professional position you are in – “reasoning beats hierarchy”.

Testimonial
What is it that makes zeb special?
For me, the way my colleagues and I interact and communicate is very special, in particular the informal way we address each other and the fact that we all can learn from one another, regardless of our respective positions in the company. At company-wide events such as the zeb.Uni or the Christmas party, you always get to know colleagues from other European office locations whom you would otherwise probably not come into contact with, as an apprentice.

What do you like most about your apprenticeship?
I  particularly like the variety it offers. As an apprentice, you get insights into many different internal departments, such as Recruiting, Finance, Research, Design & Languages, and various secretaries offices. I particularly enjoy the administrative tasks in those departments.
