"Von Azubis für Azubis" - Unser Azubi-Film mit Henri

“From apprentices for apprentices” – Henri talks about his training

3..2..1..and action! We are currently working on the new film project of WEGE mbh for the portal “Das kommt aus Bielefeld“. In the format “From apprentices for apprentices” young people give insights into the work of Bielefeld companies and report what drives them and what they enjoy most.

Our trainee Henri also tells future trainees what Halfar does and why he decided to train at Halfar. Henri is currently in the second year of his apprenticeship as an industrial clerk and is passionate about his job. So that other young people can also get an impression of Halfar as an employer, Henri has thought about what new trainees would certainly like to know. You can see Henri’s film here:


And here again the whole interview with Henri to read up:

This is me!

Hello, my name is Henri and I am doing my apprenticeship as an industrial clerk at Halfar. I am currently in my second year of training.

What am I doing here and what does the company I work for do?

HALFAR® produces special bags for special purposes as well as promotion bags for the advertising market. Our company is therefore divided into two divisions, which are not only separated thematically but also spatially.

The colleagues in the “Technical Bags” department take care of customers who need a special bag for a professional use. Often the customers here come from the medical sector or automotive industry.

I am currently working in the finishing department. Here I support my colleagues in sending orders to the suppliers, sending proofs to our customers and generally planning production. Checking the movement of goods, checking invoices and writing delivery notes are also part of my daily work.

Why do you like working at Halfar?

I think that Halfar as a training company is particularly characterised by the pleasant and familiar working atmosphere. As a trainee, you belong directly to the team and can start working immediately. The colleagues are open to questions and are always happy to help. There are no stupid questions.

I also find it exemplary that Halfar is so concerned with sustainability. Many charging stations for electric cars and green spaces on the roofs set a clear signal.

It simply motivates me every day anew to enter a new working environment and gather new impressions. During your training at Halfar, you will pass through many different departments and get to know, for example, the everyday working life of colleagues from logistics or sales.

Why should you train at Halfar?

If you are a team player, looking for new challenges every day and enjoy working with people, then Halfar is the right place for you.
