The VKTA as an employer

The VKTA as an employer

Short distances, a flat hierarchy, constructive and appreciative cooperation with highly motivated colleagues in a creative and respectful working environment as well as a modern work environment – these are the hallmarks of daily work at VKTA.

In regular and intensive communication with each other – also across departments – solutions for our internal and external customers are sought and found together.

Excellently trained specialists are therefore extremely important and are supported by VKTA. Regular further training events, as well as internal workshops on current, interdisciplinary topics, or participation in national and international conferences, specialist exchanges or congresses are part of our employees’ day-to-day business and are an opportunity for their own professional development. On 1 October each year, we offer young, interested people a training place as part of the practice-oriented dual Bachelor of Science course in radiation technology or environmental technology in cooperation with the University of Cooperative Education Riesa.

Family-friendly working hours, in particular coupled with flexitime arrangements, give our employees the opportunity to coordinate work and family life without any problems. A job ticket can be purchased for public transport users. Free parking is available for motorists on the Rossendorf research site. On the site there is a modern company restaurant which can be used for breakfast and lunch.

Together with the works council, the Executive Board regularly examines whether the working conditions in the VKTA should be adapted to modern and employee-friendly standards. For example, a company health management system is being implemented which – together with our partner at the site, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden – offers interesting opportunities to focus on one’s own health.
