Tasks for metalworkers construction engineering (m/f/d)

At Leadec, you will learn how to manufacture, repair and maintain metal and steel structures as well as how to assemble and disassemble them. To give you a better understanding of the training, we spoke to our trainee Nico (3rd year of training) about his experiences and responsibilities.

A wide variety of workplaces

“During my training, I spend approximately half of my working time in the workshop at Leadec, producing materials that we will subsequently assemble at our customers’ facilities, where we spend the other half of our working time. Most of our customers are located near our site but sometimes we have to travel to another state in Germany or even to a location abroad.”

 

Nico, 3rd year of training to become a metalworker specializing in construction technology at Leadec in Chemnitz

Varied tasks

“My tasks include everything to do with metalworking.” I especially like welding. It is not very physically demanding but it requires a lot of skill. In our workshop, we weld, bend and cut materials for our customers. This may be individual parts or large quantities of the same part. But we also deal with bigger machines which weigh up to 15 metric tons.”

Assisting with complete projects

“In my training I am really part of the team and I can be involved in projects from start to finish. This starts with our foreman receiving the order and explaining what we need to do. How we proceed from there depends on the project but generally includes manufacturing samples, planning and production, and through to assembling the parts at the customer’s facility. I am especially proud when the foreman praises the work I have done when we have finished.”
