The occupational field in renewable energies continues to grow, and there are now a large number of jobs and training areas. It is an innovative, modern and dynamic industry. If you work in it, you are also doing something for a clean future.

It is no wonder that the industry offers very popular career paths. Apprenticeships in wind energy are also future-proof professions. The energy turnaround is in full swing and has made wind power a promising career…

The RTS Wind AG training program

Training at the RTS Wind AG headquarters is well organised. Our apprentices go through different departments of the company during their training period and can thus best find out which area suits them best. Every 3-6 months there is a change, which is controlled by trainer Kristin Schmidt.
In addition, there are overarching tasks, such as representing the reception desk at lunchtime, various general services and independent projects. Every month there is a trainee meeting with the trainer to discuss common issues. Vocational school is twice a week and one day of that our trainees still come to the company. There is the possibility to do an internship abroad. Our goal is to take on our trainees after graduation – if possible.

Opportunities for training – wind energy as a career field

Wind energy offers a broad spectrum of jobs that vary greatly in their content and tasks. They range from technicians to office workers and engineers.

Many professions are trained, but some jobs also require a degree – such as planning engineers or experts. However, graduates of an apprenticeship are especially in demand for job planning, employee support and administration.

Wind energy training at RTS

Our apprenticeships also all revolve around the exciting topic of wind energy. Every year, new commercial apprenticeships start at our headquarters in Bremen. There are various opportunities to work in wind energy.

We offer places for the following professions:

  • Office Management Assistant (m/f/d) 
  • Personnel Service Clerk (m/f/d)
  • Warehouse Clerk (m/f/d)

Office Management Assistant (m/f/d) 

This profession is a versatile activity that is needed in almost every industry. Basically, office management clerks take on organisational tasks in the company. This can also be very company-specific, as is the case with training concerning wind energy at RTS. Meanwhile, each trainee chooses a thematic focus such as human resources, purchasing & logistics or marketing. Overall, office management assistants form one of the pivotal points of the entire organisation of a company.

Typical tasks include: working on the telephone and computer, master data management and payroll accounting for employees, planning business trips, bookkeeping, purchasing, invoicing and more. But direct contact with customers when communicating complaints, praise or change requests is also part of the trainees’ learning content.

Personnel Service Clerk (m/f/d)

This is still a young and highly sought-after profession. Graduates are also referred to as “recruiters” or “personnel managers”. The focus of the profession is on finding employees, which is becoming increasingly important in times of a shortage of skilled workers. In the wind energy sector, it is also an important, promising training with a lot of development potential.

The tasks are: Searching for candidates with certain qualifications, determining the requirements for applicants, screening applications, conducting interviews and hiring employees. In addition, tasks in the area of controlling and the management of employees in the field are part of the personnel officer’s duties. They are also responsible for customer service and assignment planning together with the client. In the end, they are responsible for matching suitable personnel with customer needs. This profession requires strong communication skills, organisational talent and a knack for dealing with people and working in a team.

Warehouse Clerk (m/f/d)

In this profession, work is done more behind the scenes, but nevertheless a crucial part of the regular business of the company is contributed. Managing material, tools and equipment is the daily bread here. During the two-year apprenticeship, apprentices help to put everything together, maintain it, send it to the teams, track deliveries digitally and more. Our teams need to be equipped – promptly and reliably. This requires organisational skills, a cool head at all times and a high level of concentration.

The safety of the employees in the wind farms is a priority, as they often work at heights of over 100 metres. Accordingly, it is a very responsible and varied profession. The special thing about it is that trainees do not have to choose between office work and physical work. Both are necessary when working as a warehouse clerk. Those who are interested in the commercial part have the opportunity to extend their training and become a “warehouse logistics specialist”. In this additional apprenticeship year, trainees deepen their knowledge in the field of warehousing and logistics.

“My name is Hanna and I have been working at RTS Wind AG since February 2023. After starting my training as an office management assistant in another company, I was warmly welcomed by the RTS team in the middle of the 2nd year of my apprenticeship. At RTS Wind AG, you are quickly given important tasks that come with a lot of responsibility. This in particular makes me feel well supported, valued and perfectly prepared for my future professional life.”

– Hanna, Office Management Assistant

I would like to thank everyone for their support during my training. Without your help, guidance and encouragement, I would not have been able to reach this important milestone in my professional development. Only those who teach and support their trainees properly can turn them into good employees. I am grateful for the valuable experience I was able to gain and look forward to using the knowledge and skills I have acquired in my new job and continuing to support RTS Wind AG!!”

– Alexa, former Trainee Personnel Service Clerk

“Due to a company change, I came to RTS Wind AG and was able to continue my apprenticeship here. Thanks to very open communication, modern structures and very diverse areas of responsibility, I was able to successfully complete my training and am now an integral part of RTS Wind AG.”

– Julian, former Trainee Personnel Service Clerk

Requirements for training in wind energy

To gain a foothold in a profession related to wind turbines, it is important to be interested in the energy transition. Renewable energies are on the rise and anyone who wants to work with them should be prepared to deal with the topic intensively. At RTS, it is also necessary not to be afraid of communicating in English. In general, a certain organisational skill is also necessary for commercial professions.

What other prerequisites trainees should have for the various professions depends on the specific activities. In addition, they should generally enjoy working with people for training as personnel service clerks and office management clerks. For both apprenticeships in wind energy, it is essential to have good communication skills and to be sociable.

As a recruiter, it is also essential to have negotiating skills and empathy. For warehouse specialists, it is also important to have the ability to keep track of things and to work in a concentrated and reliable manner. The most important thing is to be able to work with your own hands, but you should not shy away from office work either.

The school-leaving qualification required also depends on the exact training at Wind Energy. A warehouse specialist needs at least a good secondary school leaving certificate. For personnel service clerks or prospective clerks for office management, on the other hand, we require a subject-related university entrance qualification or equivalent.

Since 2020, we have set up our central warehouse in Bremen’s Überseestadt on the area of the historic Hag Quartier. This is where our service teams and their service vehicles are equipped for operations in the wind farms.

In addition, our stock of safety equipment is stored here, as well as our rotor blade work platforms and other technical equipment. The warehouse is managed by Marc Blum, who has also been a registered instructor for the storage area at RTS Wind AG since the beginning of 2023.

In 2023, we start our cooperation with the Bremen University of Applied Sciences within the framework of a dual study program.
