"After a presentation at my school I was immediately fascinated."

Barbara R., Business Development Operations Manager and Conqueror of Mountains

Barbara R.

Personal and professional development often requires leaving home and opening up to the world. Barbara made this important decision shortly after graduating from a commercial academy. Here, the native of Upper Austria explains why she ended up at LKW WALTER in Wiener Neudorf:

"One day at school we had a visit from a LKW WALTER Sales Manager instead of our usual business administration class. The LKW WALTER employee told us about the economic interdependence and flow of goods in Europe in such a detailed and exciting way that I was immediately fascinated." In the end, this was one of the main reasons why Barbara chose not to study further and to immediately get started in international business at LKW WALTER after her graduation.

A decision that turned out to be absolutely correct, for many reasons. "Firstly, I like travelling. Secondly, I love the contact with people from other cultures. And thirdly, I want to accomplish things privately as well as professionally. At LKW WALTER, all that is possible." Indeed, Barbara is someone who aims high in her private life too. Which is why she climbed Kilimanjaro a few years ago and spent Christmas there. But that's another story.
“At LKW WALTER I develop professionally as well as on a personal level.”

Barbara's personal recommendation:

You don't necessarily have to study in order to develop. My job at LKW WALTER and my home in Vienna have made me more open to new views and different perspectives. Those who want to pursue this path, can do so straight after school at LKW WALTER.

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.

In our employment opportunities each advert has a link that takes you to the online application form. Please fill it out and send it together with your application documents. Immediately afterwards, you will receive an e-mail. It confirms that we have received your application.
