When you walk into our workshop in Groningen, you will probably see them floundering at the workbench: our interns Yunus Emre Circir and Frank Huiberts. They both follow the Professional Entrepreneur course, level 4 and can be found one day a week in our workshop. High time to explain this a little more!
Work, work, work
In addition to the fact that we make very beautiful products, we believe, we are also onerecognized training company at the Cooperation Organization for Professional Education Business Life(SBB). This means that MBO students can gain practical experience with us. It all starts with a piece of untreated wood in the workshop, which ends as a beautiful wall decoration on the wall at the customer, a great drinks shelf on the table, cool key rings or a funny puzzle for the I-bored hours. In the phases in between we are busy with designing, tailoring, lasering, sanding, greasing, packing, shipping, relationship management, marketing and communication, purchasing, sales, after sales and so on.
Conviviality has no time
By introducing trainees to this work process and letting them contribute, we hope to provide them with the tools that will enable them to continue in practice. We sell our products to companies, but also sell them through retail and private individuals. These different sales channels require a different approach and a different strategy. This allows us to offer MBO students a varied range of duties. In addition, we also think it is very pleasant!
