New faces for new tasks

The grid enabler

The number and complexity of duties and responsibilities at Amprion are growing – and so is the number of employees. In recent years, we have already welcomed many new colleagues on board. Currently, Amprion is looking not only for engineers, technicians and fitters – IT specialists, lawyers and communication experts are also in demand.

»Underground cables are still a relatively new technology in the transmission grid, with new processes and developments. At Amprion, I can work on projects that are being implement­ed in this form for the first time. That’s extremely appealing to an engineer.«

»I was originally a mathematician. As a student, I would never have dreamed that I would one day find myself trying to come up with ways to make better utilisation of the electricity grid. Today, I’m particularly impressed by the fact that innova­tive algorithms and functions of the control systems can significantly improve utilisation of the transmission grid.«

»Working in a company with complex IT management and large-scale projects matches my profile exactly.

»I took the opportunity to take on more responsibility within the company. After four years as a primary technology fitter and further training to become a state-certified technician, I switched to the Overhead Lines department, where I now work as deputy head of the supervisory area. My area of responsibility has diversified since then. It’s a good feeling to have taken this step.«

»As a geographer, I specialise in urban and regional development. My interdisciplinary training is highly beneficial to me at Amprion, because I work together with many specialist departments, authorities and citizens. There are no daily routines in this job – and that’s precisely what makes it so exciting.«

at Amprion since 2016 as a subproject manager in the Permits & Approvals department

»My specialisation during my studies was on public-sector commercial, environmental and infrastructure law – good preparation for my work at Amprion. Nevertheless, I still learn something new every day here and can gain valuable experience as a young professional.«
