You will have access to qualified contact persons who will look after you on a personal as well as a professional level.

“For my period of study, I was looking for a company, which would support my personal development, give me the opportunity to gain practical experience, and where I could combine work and study effectively. Windmöller offered me a suitable opportunity which means I now have my own area of responsibility while supporting the marketing team. I was warmly welcomed by the team and the job is both exciting and demanding."
