A good education is an important part of a professional career, so I am happy to support the trainees in this respect. I enjoy seeing how the trainees develop and I am happy to contribute to this. It's a great feeling when former trainees can slowly take over important functions in the company themselves.

Trainees spend time in several different departments of the respective company to which they are assigned
As a medium-sized holding company with international operations in petroleum, energy, chemicals and promising young businesses we offer trainees the opportunity of getting to know many facets of the industry. Within the DS Group this entails several stints in different departments as well as in different Group companies.
Our trainees spend two to three months in the individual (specialist) departments. It is important for new members of our team to understand the individual perspectives as seen from sales, purchasing and logistics. And when this is done in various DS Group companies, our trainees are able to gain a new outlook and a wealth of experience. Extensive feedback discussions between the trainee and the trainer after each stint help to reinforce this perspective, allowing trainees to continuously make the most of their own potential.
These varied stints during the training course provide the basis for even broader practical experience and this is something that makes training at DS something really special.
Trainees are fully involved from day one
We apply the “Training on the job” approach throughout the entire training period. Trainees and young professionals are immediately integrated into day-to-day business operations not as an anonymous “production factor” but as part of the DS team. They always keep ahead of the operational process, this being an important principle for us to show that trainers are not cheap labour for us but tomorrow’s gold. When a trainee needs more time to learn more about the theoretical underpinnings of the job, we understand this and duly take it into consideration. This is exactly what training is for: comprehensive and optimum practical and theoretical vocational learning.
DS Group trainees are also acquainted with the holding company’s accounting department
Many processes converge in the accounting department. DS Group trainees spend two to three months in the holding company’s accounting department as part of their training in the respective subsidiaries in order to gain an understanding of the important internal business processes.
Employees at DS-Mineralöl GmbH, NewEN Projects and DS card + drive particularly work closely together and increasingly integrate young potentials into the DS Group’s interdisciplinary processes. This ensures a smooth transition from training to the work process on both sides, i.e. for our trainees as well as the respective companies.
If required, we offer our trainees language courses, support them in preparing for exams and give them additional tuition in accounting.
Apprentices at DS are motivated and supporting them is simply fun. It is great to see how the trainees develop and apply the knowledge they have acquired.
