Chemistry is colourful

Is the idea of working in an international environment just as exciting as that of dealing daily with the colorful world of chemistry? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Start your professional future with us. Thanks to our many years of experience, you will receive sound training with us, during which you will be able to take on responsibility at an early stage and grow in terms of tasks. You will be intensively supervised by our employees and can exchange ideas with other trainees. We offer the following dual training courses and a dual course of study:

Management Assistant in Wholesale, Export and Foreign Trade: The training lasts 2.5 to 3 years. For this training we expect Fachhochschulreife or Abitur (high school diploma).

In our sales departments you will have contact with our international suppliers and customers, purchase raw materials, prepare quotations, process and dispose of sales orders, prepare price calculations, communicate with our international subsidiaries and supervise your first own projects. And you can also find out why the cola is black, how the shine gets into the lipstick or why the adhesive sticks. Two days a week you visit the vocational school at Lämmermarkt. The theoretical part of the training will be accompanied by internal training courses in our company. We also offer you the opportunity to spend several weeks abroad in one of our European subsidiaries.

In addition, you will be enrolled at NOVI B.V., a Dutch partner university of the institute, from the beginning of your training and attend supplementary weekend events of NOVI in Hamburg. In the 6th and 7th semesters these take place at NOVI B.V in Utrecht. The theoretical training is rounded off by a two-week certificate course "Export and Foreign Trade" in London. And like our dual trainees, you also have the opportunity to spend several weeks abroad in one of our European subsidiaries.

What former NRC trainees have to say:

"Almost two years ago I started my professional life and started my apprenticeship at NRC.  At NRC, you quickly get right into the thick of the action, get really involved in day-to-day business and have contact with customers and suppliers from all over the world. During your training you will pass through many different departments and thus get an overview of the entire company - this requires commitment, motivation and openness. Those who take up this challenge are rewarded with responsibility, an exciting everyday life and nice Mitazubis."
