apprenticeship programme in Denmark

Become a transport planning expert with the Nagel-Group apprenticeship programme

Nothing is more exciting than first-hand information. Patrick Valant is 30 years old and works as a apprentice in transport planning at the Nagel-Group in Denmark. In this interview, he talks about his experiences with the apprenticeship programme.

Patrick, why did you decide on an apprenticeship programme with the Nagel-Group?

Through my brother, who also works for a logistics company in Denmark, I was already familiar with the logistics industry before I started working.

I got to know the Nagel-Group through an internship. During this time, I learned about the career opportunities within the company. Due to the size of the company, there are numerous opportunities for advancement after my time as an apprentice. I was extremely interested in the offer to start as an apprentice in transport planning because I had already noticed during my internship that I enjoy this area of work very much.

It was important to me that I also had the opportunity to take on responsibility during my time as an apprentice.

How did your first days go, and are you already fully integrated into the team?

I particularly like the fact that I had a mentor right from the start, who explained all the tasks and procedures to me in detail. This gave me the confidence I needed to be able to carry out tasks independently and grow with new tasks. Additionally, even though I am now a regular team member with my areas of responsibility, all colleagues are there to help me with any questions I may have.

What are your plans at the Nagel-Group?

This summer, I’m starting an economics degree programme in addition to my apprenticeship programme. I hope to be able to work in various branches afterwards to gain an insight into the Group’s operations. I can work in different countries. Initially, I would like to gain further experience here in Denmark and complete my studies. .

Do you have any tips for applicants or other apprentices?

If you are interested in an apprenticeship programme with the Nagel-Group, be curious and responsible! Ask as many questions as possible – and not only within your department. Question the processes and drive your personal development

Thank you for the interesting interview, Patrick!
