We in Wilhelmshaven

Our office building in Wilhelmshaven is called "Pacific One". That sounds like sea, ocean, the great wide world. And that's exactly what we see when we look out of the office window. From here, massive coal freighters can be watched at the Niedersachsenbrücke jetty, and even the world's largest container ships. We can always be found smack-dab in the hustle and bustle of the port. Since the end of 2019, we have been in this building, together with colleagues from the port company JadeWeserPort.

Our Wilhelmshaven crew consists of around 60 employees in the areas of Engineering and Technical, Technical Service, Port Office, Real Estate, Commercial Affairs, as well as HR and Administration. In this relatively small team, you can almost find some kind of family atmosphere: Old and young understand each other perfectly and there is always something to laugh about. Even after work. For example, at our annual Christmas party.

Elka Wilken, Team Manager Engineering&Consulting since May 2020

In Wilhelmshaven, everyone helps everyone - even across teams. In addition, individual needs and skills are addressed. Because of this, I was able to change from my Port Supervision position to an area that I was more interested in, namely to the Engineering&Technical sector. I am very grateful for this opportunity.

Our Wilhelmshaven

From Hooksiel to the Südstrand (South Beach), there is something to discover everywhere. Whether you want to watch ships or explore beautiful leisure areas. Wilhelmshaven and its surroundings are very versatile, which port, for instance, can boast a horse racing track in immediate vicinity to a water ski lift?

Leisure/Culture

Sailing or canoeing. Diving or surfing. Wilhelmshaven has a lot of sporting activities to offer for water lovers. But even on land you can be active, above all by bike. On the dike, you often encounter a little headwind, but the effort is always rewarded with a great view. You can take a dip in the outdoor public pool "Klein Wangerooge" at Lake Bantersee or in the Nautimo water park. 

Wilhelmshaven is called the "Green City by the Sea". Relaxing walks can be enjoyed in the various parks (City Park and Spa Park), as well as in the botanical garden or the rose garden. Wilhelmshaven can also compete in culinary terms, there are many restaurants and cafés, especially on the promenade on the Südstrand (South Beach). 

Cultural highlights include the "Weekend on the Jade", "Wilhelmshaven Dances", the "Street Art Festival", or the "Wilhelmshaven Sailing CUP". In addition, various museums, the municipal theater or the aquarium are always worth a visit.
