When you work overseas, you leave familiar surroundings and immerse yourself in countries with other values and social norms. Overseas work leads to interesting and new impressions, and also requires our employees to exercise a high degree of sensitivity to foreign living conditions and special cultural aspects.

We also offer a wide range of demanding positions in Germany, for example in the Media, Marketing, Information and Policy, Logistics and IT area. In principle, you have the option of gaining initial job experience in development co-operation at our organisation.

Please check our current vacancies and apply if you are interested in one of the positions.

Over the past few years, we have received a very high number of unsolicited applications. We have been very pleased about the great interest shown for our organization – and the willingness to actively support our work. However, we do not have a database where to file applications and can therefore only consider applications submitted for a particular job posting. We would therefore appreciate if you could refrain from sending speculative applications and thank you for your understanding. We invite you to continue visiting the jobs section on our website and apply for any positions that meet your qualifications and interests.
