Do you have a head for heights and enjoy working with your hands? As a scaffolder, your job is to build working platforms and protective scaffolding as well as to erect high scaffold structures made of steel and aluminium – all, of course, exactly as set out in the plan. You carefully plan and coordinate work processes and make sure all health, safety and environmental regulations are met. What's more, you have to operate many different types of equipment. Having said all that, scaffolders do not only build scaffolding: their job also involves erecting temporary weatherproof structures (temporary buildings) and roof covers as well as covering whole scaffolds in sheeting to protect exposed walls.
This 3-year apprenticeship teaches both the theory and practical skills needed for the job – as well as a well-balanced combination of technical aspects, know-how, logistics and work safety matters. All these subjects are intrinsically connected to each other and are fundamental to being able to have a successful career in this profession. Besides spending time at a vocational college, you also get to work in all the business areas relevant to your course at our company. Moreover, you also take part in inter-company training courses.
The minimum qualifications needed to be able to do an apprenticeship to become a scaffolder is a 'Hauptschulabschluss' [school leaving certificate (age 16)]. A large part of your time is spent working high above the ground so it is essential that you have a head for heights. It is also important that you are interested in and good at working with your hands. It goes without saying that you are punctual, reliable and flexible. In addition, you enjoy working as part of a team and collaborating with people from other professions.
So what's next after you have successfully finished your apprenticeship? If you've got good grades, then there's a very good chance that you'll be taken on by our company. But that's not all – you can also benefit from our excellent further training programme. There's a whole range of opportunities open to you when you join our company. Gain further qualifications to become e.g. a group leader, master crafts scaffolder or technician or follow in the footsteps of your apprenticeship trainer and learn to train apprentices yourself. And with the right amount of experience, you can manage your own projects or even your own site.
The best thing about my job is putting up the scaffolding. If you want to be a scaffolder, then you must be able to and want to work as part of a team, be flexible and good at working with your hands. It goes without saying that you don't mind working in all weathers and that you are reliable. I decided to do this apprenticeship at REMONDIS because I had heard a lot about REMONDIS from my brother who told me there are good opportunities to make a career for oneself at the company.
