Make the port your workplace


My job is different every day

After I completed my thesis at HPA, I worked my way up as a civil engineer to become the head of the department, responsible today for railway superstructure projects – from their planning to their execution. I continually switch between the office and the construction site and head the project management. I have lots of different interfaces and am always connecting with other people. This is what makes my job so exciting. I like that everyone just lends a hand here.

All the railway construction sites which are not major projects run through me. An absolute highlight was the construction of the new locomotive service centre. A sophisticated 25-million-euro project that was a lot of fun for me. I like to take responsibility and here is where you have the chance to do so, along with the necessary support for taking over a leadership role
