Training? Naturally with Bode!

At Bode Naturkost, we offer a wide range of apprenticeships. We offer training in seven different professions - from wholesale and foreign trade management assistant, e-commerce assistant, IT specialist for application development and system integration to forwarding and logistics services assistant and warehouse specialist. The dual study programme for electrical engineering and information technology is also part of the training offer.

Every trainee runs through all departments during their training - from logistics and marketing to quality assurance and goods purchasing and sales. In this way, everyone gets a comprehensive insight into internal processes as well as international and national trade. This trains commercial skills and builds social and professional competences. Furthermore, it becomes understandable how important communication and cooperation are. Consequently it also improves teamwork.

Trainee Project Team

Another valuable part of the training at Bode Naturkost is working together in a trainee project team. This is a team in which all of the company's trainees work together on a project-oriented basis which gives the trainees a comprehensive, cross-departmental insight. Together, they are responsible for the entire process of handling important projects that are initiated directly by the management. Such as be a product development, the presentation of a topic on the website or a campaign for customers. For this purpose, the young professionals meet once a week and determine goals and their implementation. Each member is given his or her own task and regularly takes on roles such as discussion leader and minute writer. Meetings and communication can take place here in person or digitally, depending on the situation.

Get to know our energetic trainees here:

Michelle Hoppe is in her third year of training as a management assistant in wholesale and foreign trade management:

“I like being part of this young, constantly growing team, which allows its trainees to work independently and gain interesting experience at an early stage. For example, I was given the opportunity to participate in trade fairs, visit customers abroad and build up my own customer base. Even after my apprenticeship, I am offered the prospect of further training, which means that there are no limits to a future at Bode.“

Premrudee Detrach is in her first year of training to become a wholesale and foreign trade management assistant:

„I like the diversity in the company. There are good opportunities for further training and my colleagues actively support me in my daily work. I really enjoy dealing with customers - because no day is like the other.“

Benjamin Bartelt is in his first year of apprenticeship as an IT specialist for application development:

„The flat hierarchy, the varied areas of responsibility and, above all, the family-friendliness of the company make me happy to work here. Even with private problems, e.g. looking after the children, a solution is sought together."

Dual student for electrical engineering and information technology Thanh-Viet Nguyen is in the first semester:

“Working in a company that is committed to sustainability and that you can contribute to is a great incentive for me. I learn a lot from practical tasks where there are always new challenges to master. I find it particularly appealing that we work a lot with open source. This does not only makes the work more interesting, but also helps with self-development and offers a lot of freedom.“

Nico Schmal is in his first year of training to become a freight forwarding and logistics services clerk:

"I used to worked at Bode Naturkost's warehouse for six years. However, I was given the opportunity to reorient myself due to physical limitations. I would describe the open communication between us trainees and the management level as a kind of "little family". My trainer not only has an open ear for my professional problems, but also for my private ones. If you ask me why I like being a trainee here, I could answer that simply with one word: COHESION!"

What do our employees say about the trainee project team?

Svenja Stang, the management assistant, heads the trainee project team:

“Right from the start, I really appreciated working with the trainee project team. The different training courses and characters make the work within the team extremely diverse. At the same time, these circumstances challenge the team. These have to be mastered and have been mastered proficiently.
I am proud of the trainee project team and what we have already achieved together.
I am highly looking forward to keep growing together as a team, to continuing to promote independent work and our own organisation, and to being able to give them more responsibility accordingly. With great interest, I look forward to our follow-up projects.“

What projects did the trainee project team realise?

Product development "nut kernel pieces mix organic"

The apprentice project team has been responsible for the entire product development of our Bode article 22760 nut kernel pieces mix organic from the idea to the market launch. The task here was to develop an item that stands for sustainability. The blend contains nut pieces that are outside the calibration of whole kernels At the same time it offers the taste of the highest quality.
In this process, the trainees made the selection of ingredients and determined the appropriate mixing ratio - for the perfect taste, the harmonious appearance and to ensure the best price-performance ratio.
The trainees succeeded brilliantly and the result is a great product!

Planting an insect bed

As part of our trainee project, we planted an insect bed on our company premises. As we know, industrious insects such as bees, bumblebees and many more make an important contribution to nature, as their work keeps our ecosystem stable.
Our insect bed is located in a sunny spot so that the plants can shine with their beautiful flowers in the years to come. We chose a seed mix that produces flowers for wild bees and bumblebees, which are especially endangered. In addition, we have planted plants that provide hiding-places for native butterflies.
Since sustainability is very important to us, this project is especially close to our hearts! To show you the difference, we have created a small photo collage. Be curious to see how our flowering miracle will develop and feel free to visit us in the future to see what other projects we realize!

We are looking forward to these follow-up projects:

  • Evaluation of internal sustainability at Bode incl. development of concrete suggestions for improvement.
  • More exciting projects to follow!
