Your future career.

With your apprenticeship as a retail trade specialist we will make you into a diverse and qualified all-rounder. Are you communicative, reliable and flexible?

And it is also more fun working together in a big team.

What you can expect afterwards.

  • After your training, you will know exactly what really counts - and will demonstrate this every day when you order, issue or furnish goods. 
  • You manage workshops, organise orders, maintain contact with customers and fulfil their needs in sales talks.
  • Should you wish to take your training further, we will also support you with additional courses and seminars to become a business expert, commercial specialist from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) or retail management expert.

  • A talent for business and logistics
  • A passion for BMW and MINI
  • Confidence in handling numbers
