Technical field

Do you like your gadgets? Do you want to use your smart phone to switch on the oven on your way home so that your pizza is ready to eat when you arrive? Do you want to control all the appliances in your home while on the road? Then a technical profession is exactly right for you! If large plants fascinate you as well and you are also passionate about renewable energy from wind and solar power, then join us!

Commercial sector

Planning and organising is your thing. You like to work with people. And on the computer. You don't wait for others to allocate your next task, but you take the initiative yourself. If you also have an interest in numbers, then you should choose a commercial occupation.

Do you want to work towards managing complex IT systems and commanding vast IT knowledge? Then join us! Our colleagues in IT are looking forward to meeting you.

Your home is always buzzing. You are very communicative and love to cater for your friends and organise parties. You only get going when the pressure is on: planning, shopping, cooking and accommodating. You stay in control. What others consider to be stress, you call fun. You are only happy if your guests are too. People like you, with your strong organisational talent, are at home in gastronomy, the hotel business or event management. And, in contrast to the independent gastronomy sector, we can offer you regular work hours.
