What needs to be done to get the goods to where they belong? That’s what an industrial clerk takes care of. This is because they work in companies in almost all sectors of the economy and are directly linked to production. They master and control business processes, compare quotations, negotiate with suppliers, prepare calculations and record value flows in the company, which are booked and controlled. In addition, employees want to be looked after in all personnel matters and regularly receive their pay slips.

The vocational school is located in Nordenham. The apprenticeship to become an industrial clerk takes three years. The apprenticeship for industrial clerks is only carried out every two years in order to ensure a quality process. During your apprenticeship, you will be paid a gross apprenticeship salary of around EUR 1,100.

Finding a suitable post at the end of the apprenticeship is likely to be difficult due to the age structure in commercial administration.


As an industrial clerk trainee, we expect you to have good grades in German, mathematics and English and a good secondary school leaving certificate, alternatively the Abitur. An interest in business as well as the ability to work in a team, willingness to learn and motivation are required. Sociability and good language skills are essential in this profession.
