'"You can't teach people anything, you can only help them discover it within themselves."

Michael H., Team leader and expert in staff training

Michael H.

"I actually wanted to be a Geography and English teacher." But after completing his HAK (commercial school) diploma, Michael was advised during several student guidance sessions not to pursue these subjects. His Plan B was an application to LKW WALTER, and this soon turned out to be Plan A.

"My dad was a lorry driver. So after the final exams, the decision to turn to logistics was an easy one." His genetic predisposition proved to be an advantage during his years as Transport Manager. After some years, however, his ambition to become a teacher returned. He was thinking about enrolling at an educational academy when the HR training department at WALTER GROUP made him an offer.

"Remaining at the company and still being able to follow my passion was the best solution of all. You only get opportunities like this in a large and flexible company like the WALTER GROUP." Since then, Michael has been leading seminars and workshops, and he is coach and confidant to many trainees. His years of experience in transport and management are invaluable for this role.

"Mistakes are a part of learning."

Michael's personal tip:

I can promise you from first-hand experience that we give all new employees the necessary expertise for the various jobs. I'm guided in this by Galileo Galilei - he once said, 'you can't teach people anything, you can only help them discover it within themselves.'

Generally professional experience or industry knowledge are not necessary for entry into our operational business. Because we educate new employees as part of our "Train the Winner" trainee programme and we cover both theory and practice. However, there are some areas in which we greatly appreciate relevant experience and previous knowledge. For example, in our IT, Legal or Sales departments, where we can offer (young) professionals attractive career opportunities. Our recommendation: Just take a look at our employment opportunities.
The classic apprenticeships such as freight forwarding manager or office clerk are not offered in our company.
