Digital Project Assistant (Werkstudent) (m/w)

Digital Project Assistant (Werkstudent) (m/w)

Schacht One is the dedicated pioneer for digital innovation within the Haniel Group. We identify, validate, and incubate digital opportunities to generate revenue and establish new sources of income. With this we enable Haniel to stay “enkelfähig”.

We are a subsidiary of “Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH” located at the Zollverein UNESCO World Heritage Site. Schacht One stands for innovation, perseverance, and authenticity! Some 165 years ago, Franz Haniel laid the foundation for the industrialization of the Ruhr by mass-mining coveted fat coal at Pit 1 of the Zollverein mine. At Schacht One, we now mine the fuel for growth in the future: digital ideas.

As  Digital Project Assistant (m/w) (German: Werkstudent), you will work in digital projects together with your teammates, our customers, and external partners. Your goal is to support Schacht One’s digital projects and help design the digital journeys of Haniel’s business units. 

Just like our customers, your tasks and projects will be extremely diverse. Moreover, many projects have high visibility within the customers’ management boards and even the Haniel board. 

When working at Schacht One, you will have to keep up with both worlds: startup-like and ultra-short decision-making, as well as corporate management routines.

It’s up to you to make our team not only bigger, but better!

When we think about you, we believe you should... 

  • ... major in a relevant field of study such as (innovation) management,  entrepreneurship, and marketing
  • … have gained initial experience in working in project teams
  • … be capable of working independently
  • … like to work in a dynamic environment in which constant learning and the watercooler chat with your teammates are more important than the 5-star cantina
  • … bring along a natural curiosity for (and maybe initial experience in) innovation
  • … have an entrepreneurial spirit
  • … be fluent in German and comfortable with speaking and writing English.

Perks & Benefits

As a member of the Schacht One team, you are more than a small cog in the wheel - you have the opportunity to create impact on the digital journey of the Haniel group. We are startup and corporate rolled into one - something unique for sure.

  • The Approach

    The location and our team are unique. Together we rock the house and bridge corporate gaps to create tangible assets and digital services instead of pure Powerpoint presentations.

  • The Learnings

    At Schacht One, you will have the opportunity to gain in-depth insights into the (digital) challenges of various business models. To cope with these challenges, we employ our profound and constantly growing network of partners and try out new ways of problem solving on a daily basis.

  • The Serious Fun

    We are not external consultants – we are partners of our business units. Our mission is not generating the highest profit, but helping our customers to succeed on their journey. Our unique positioning in the Haniel group creates intrinsic motivation in the project teams and trust into our approach at the same time. We don't expect 16-hour work shifts - we push for self-responsibility.

  • The Financials

    We believe, working at Schacht One is a benefit by itself. We also believe that great work requires appropriate financial compensation. Thus, we offer a competitive salary. Most positions at Schacht One also include a company car.

Workplace & Culture

Schacht One feels like a startup with corporate DNA. Of course, we have table-tennis and foosball tables. Of course, we don't wear suits and ties. And yes, our offices look really cool. However, we still care a great deal about "corporate challenges".

We believe teamwork is key, making personal fit the most crucial job requirement. Aside from our professional passion for change and innovation, we still want to have a lot of fun together.
