Dual curriculum, Jokey SE
“When I opened the door to Jokey as a trainee eight years ago, I had no idea how varied and enriching my career would be! After completing my apprenticeship and, later on, my instructor qualification, I decided to take another career step: in the form of a dual study programme for a B.A. in Business Management. What I appreciate most as a dual student is the opportunity to change departments and locations. I can contribute and deepen my knowledge of a variety of working methods and experience the development of visions – through discussions in the many areas I get to know through my assignments and by experiencing the day-to-day work.Read more
The colleagues are very open-minded and helpful. This makes it easier for me to learn new tasks. I can approach them openly if I have questions. Every question results in an exchange – a new contact with valuable expertise. This, in turn, creates my very own vision of where I want to go in my profession. I feel that lively cooperation – across different areas – is the ultimate benefit for employees and for the company. In addition to my exciting tasks, this cooperation motivates me to come to work every day – no matter which department I have just landed in. Another change of perspective is on the horizon. This way, I discover the many facets of a global packaging manufacturer. It certainly doesn’t get boring.”show less

Just an idea is not enough ... you have to make something out of it. Hardly anything describes the employees of Jokey better than this sentence. Every day we strive to improve a little bit. That is only possible with the cooperation of our employees.
Gabi & Jessica Groth
Members of the Cleaning Team,
We spill coffee in the stairwell, leave stains on office furniture, crumble crumbs into the carpet - and the next working day everything is magically gone. Who of us thinks about the many hardworking hands on duty here? - Just to make us feel good in the company!
Sales Manager, Jokey Poland
I catch Daniel Konopka, who is the father of two children, at his home in a village near Katowice, Poland. He is juggling everyday family life and his job as a sales manager and he seems confident, calm as well as highly motivated.
Assistance of the technical management
"My employment with Jokey began with an internship semester during my studies as an industrial engineer specializing in mechanical engineering. My job was to plan fully automatic transport equipment for the internal material flow at Jokey Plastik Gummersbach. Afterwards I also wrote my final assignment in the field of factory planning at Jokey. I was not only allowed to plan the project, but to implement it myself. That really inspired me. Today I am the assistant of the technical manager and am responsible for technical purchasing, among other things. The job is just right for me: communicative, varied and exciting every day.”
"As a product developer for packaging, my main focus is on reducing the weight of articles. The thinner the walls, the more ecological a package is, because fewer raw materials have to be used and CO2 emissions during handling and transport are reduced. I also sound out the market for suitable bioplastics. I make sure that these are from certified, sustainable cultivation. Nature is also close to my heart in my private life. I am engaged in the preservation of a biotope, take care of the living conditions of toads and newts and help rescue roe fawn".
"After my training as a process mechanic for plastics and rubber technology at Jokey, I did further training as a plastics technician. Today, as a member of the Technical Support staff, I look after the plants in Turkey and Serbia from the location in Fähnrichstüttem. I advise them, for example, on the acquisition of new injection moulding machines, tools or robots; or I support the plants in making their production processes more efficient. I am in constant contact with colleagues and suppliers. There is no routine in my job. Every project means a new challenge. You always have to get new information, rethink the technology, weigh up and try things out."
