Helping is always the priority.
The motto of the German fire brigades is “Save – Extinguish – Rescue – Protect”. And as a member of the voluntary fire service, Julian Stephan naturally knows this and acts accordingly. His life motto, however, is somewhat differently formulated, and also goes for his workplace: Helping is always the priority. A mindset that reveals him as the perfect team player who will surely support his colleagues today and tomorrow.
Julian started his apprenticeship to become a technical product designer at Bertrandt directly after school, in September 2017. That means that he, like the other apprentices in Ehningen and Mönsheim, has been deployed for the first 18 months at the training centre at Leonsberg in order to learn the basics of his future career. Two days a week, however, the desks are put away and practical work dominates: bodywork, interior, exterior, light and vision, powertrain: these are the specialist departments that he will get to know better during his apprenticeship.
After this basic training, he will go out into the specialist departments to deepen his practical knowledge and finally to decide which path he wishes to take in his career. “We all have opportunities here in apprenticeships and further training. This was the decisive plus-point for me when I applied to Bertrandt.” After entering the company, Julian Stephan found further positive aspects: “It’s the faultless way we work together in a team with colleagues and with trainers – everyone is reliable and independent. And this is important: Everyone helps everyone else, which makes everything a little easier.”
In his work, the family man is naturally helping to shape the future of mobility. Current trends like autonomous driving and electromobility need new vehicle concepts which offer exciting challenges for technical product designers. And it is certain that Julian – true to his motto – will give his full commitment to driving these trends forward.
