Graduates, students and school pupils

In order to encourage dairy research, Lactoprot has become one of the sponsors of an endowed professorship for Dairy and Food Industry Economics at the Christian Albrecht University of Kiel. It also has connections with the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg. Besides this, we are open to forms of scientific cooperation relating to the dairy industry.

Prospects for university graduates
Do you have a degree in Food Technology, Nutritional Science or Economics, and are you looking for a company operating internationally that can get you off to a flying start? Then Lactoprot is the right address for you. We offer motivated university graduates the opportunity of direct entry into a career with interesting prospects in a fascinating environment.

Opportunities for students
We like to open the door to prospective new employees while they are still at university. So we regularly help with Bachelor and Master dissertations and enable students to work on a diversity of topics with practical relevance. We also offer internships so that students subsequently find it easier to choose a career.

I am hoping to become an industrial engineer and studying at the Nordakademie in Elmshorn. I deliberately chose a dual studies course so that I can acquire practical experience of everyday work alongside normal student life and get used to the procedures in a company. Compared with other study courses, the curriculum at the Nordakademie is much more compact, and while “ordinary” students have vacations, we have to work. But practical experience gives you a much better understanding of what you have learned at lectures. For example, at Lactoprot I have already been able to apply my theoretical knowledge in the accounts department and in the technical field. And I benefit from working with experienced colleagues, too.

Insights for school pupils
Young people still at school also have regular opportunities of getting a first taste of working life. Whereas many international companies now only offer long internship periods, we make brief insights possible. As a company based in a rural area, we regard this as a social obligation.
