Career change opportunity

From scientist to training manager

After completing my doctorate in biotechnology I first of all wanted to go into cancer research. As I was accompanying science trucks on their education tours however, I noticed how much I enjoyed communicating knowledge and passed the instructor aptitude test with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry. That’s where I heard about SÜDPACK and applied to the professional development department – without any industry experience! I nevertheless was given the opportunity to find out more about the company in the quality assurance department. From there it was just a short step to my dream job as head of training.



Take off at the start of your career

From trainee to project engineer

I cannot imagine a life without printing. And I mean that quite literally: I did study print and media technology and wrote my dissertation on anilox roll. So packaging printing is an important part of my life. I started at SÜDPACK three years ago as a trainee on the production side. I’m now working as a project engineer in the print shop and am responsible for some very different projects. For example, I have established an anilox roll management system and lead a team looking at the issue of colour metrics. Every day brings new and exciting challenges.

Commitment is rewarded

From cleaner to quality manager

I took a circuitous route to SÜDPACK – but sometimes those are the best. I come from Croatia and am an environmental scientist. After my degree I travelled a lot and at some point I washed up in Upper Swabia. I could hardly speak any German so to start with I took a job as a cleaner. When a job was advertised in the laboratory, one of the managers encouraged me to apply. And lo and behold, I got the job! Today I work in the quality assurance department with great colleagues, varied tasks and plenty of responsibility.
