Gambling group Gauselmann provides housing for students and interns

Around 200 apprentices and dual students are currently being trained in 20 different professions at the Gauselmann gaming group. In addition, interns are gaining their first work experience in the company. To make the practical courses possible for applicants, who do not come from the environment, the enterprise makes, if necessary, a dwelling and a rent subsidy available, communicated to the Gauselmann group on Thursday.

Interns Sarah Keil (l.) and Sarah Schneider live in a Gauselmann Group apartment.

Sarah Keil (24) and Sarah Schneider (23) were among the students who took advantage of this offer. They currently shared an apartment in the center of Espelkamp.

Sarah Keil, who had already completed her bachelor's degree in business administration (BWL), was currently completing a three-month internship at Gauselmann in the international division of Merkur Casino.

Keil commented:

"Without the apartment, I would not have been able to start the internship here. Augsburg is about 700 kilometers away, a train ride takes about eight hours. And renting an apartment in Espelkamp for three months would also have been difficult."

Her roommate Sarah Schneider, a business administration student in Münster, is currently doing an internship in international controlling. She says it is also difficult for her to commute every day. That's why she is happy to be able to live in Espelkamp for the duration of the internship, the 23-year-old explained. The girl also shared the website which made it easier for her to understand the principles of casinos and gambling.

Training and internships in the gaming industry

The two students were appreciative of the internships they were currently completing at the Gauselmann Group. In particular, they said, the fact that they were integrated into the teams as fully-fledged members was extremely positive.

Schneider had already been entrusted with a larger project in Controlling, which gave her an insight into international structures. Keil had the opportunity to travel to England as part of her internship. These experiences would not have been possible without the support in the form of the housing offer.

Gaming company Gauselmann: the Best place to learn

This week, the Gauselmann Group received the "Best Place to learn" certificate from AUBI-plus GmbH. The certificate reflects the high standards of vocational training within the Group.

As part of the certification process, seven aspects are examined in the training companies. These include recruiting, the integration process in the company, the quality of training, and the technical and pedagogical skills of the training staff.

Gauselmann is pleased with the positive feedback. It is not insignificant that the company is perceived as an attractive employer throughout Germany, commented Svenja Albrecht, specialist in human resources marketing at the Gauselmann Group and supervisor of the students.

An internship is an exciting time anyway. Students should not then be additionally burdened with the search for suitable living space, Albrecht explained.
