Nils Brüsehafer with Karl Dreyer,

Welcome on board!

At NEPTUN WERFT, we build river cruise ships, floating engine room units and various specialised vessels. That’s why we need a highly qualified team that works closely together to make dream projects a reality.

If you’d like to be part of our team, come aboard! We offer training in six different professions. We not only offer extensive and varied apprenticeships with exciting challenges, but also an innovative environment with a nice mix of theory and practice. What do we expect from you? Team spirit, reliability and independence.

We’re excellent!

The Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) in Rostock has been presenting its TOP Training Company Award for many years – and NEPTUN WERFT has always stood out for its excellent apprenticeships. Some of the most important aspects include our individual support, committed teachers and early vocational guidance for schoolchildren.

NEPTUN WERFT has now been recognised as a TOP Training Company for the thirteenth time in a row. Our company is also certified in the area of occupational safety and environmental

Your safety

Safety in the workplace is one of our main priorities. All our areas have been screened by risk assessment teams to determine safety targets, and we’ve developed a special occupational health and safety programme for our apprentices to reduce the risk of accidents. And, of course, our in-house doctor is always at hand.
