Antonio Achtziger, office management apprentice

"After my school and a year at the higher secondary school in Hof, I decided to get an apprenticeship in office management at Fondsdepot Bank. During my apprenticeship, I've already spent time in various departments of the bank, such as Custody Account Opening, Purchasing, Taxes and the Mailroom. So far, I've especially enjoyed the time I spent in the "General Custody Account Management" team. I really enjoyed working in operations, and I was very comfortable in the team. In the third year of my apprenticeship, I'm going to get to know the HR and Finance departments. One of the personal highlights during my apprenticeship was the employee team event. Together with the Marketing team, we went bowling in Hof. That was really fun. I greatly enjoy being an apprentice at Fondsdepot Bank."

Lilli Rockmann, year 9 at Christoph Graupner Grammar School, Kirchberg

"As I've always been interested in graphical design, I knew that I'd by all means want to do my two-week internship in this area.  My mum was the one who drew my attention to Fondsdepot Bank.  She has already been with the bank for a long time, and she suggested trying this company's Marketing department. To me, this department appeared to be the perfect place to do what I enjoy and discover new aspects of the wide subject area of 'marketing'. During my internship, I was introduced to the bank's press work, web design, social media presence and the field of graphics. In addition to what I've learned about marketing, I've got to know the bank in general, I've been able to participate in meetings and I've even uploaded material to the website. I really learned a lot in two weeks. I was especially impressed by the web design work. The internship has been very beneficial for my future career, and it was fun."
