The range of jobs available in the public service is diverse. Employers include institutions such as the federal government and local authorities, but also social insurance institutions such as pension funds and health insurance funds.
Exciting jobs and many opportunities
If you want to advance in your job, the civil service offers many opportunities. Municipalities and public authorities are looking for engineers for various fields, such as construction, as well as for public utilities or energy suppliers. Senior managers are also needed. For example in hospitals, the nursing sector, at institutes, foundations and in the academic sector.
The civil service as an entry or new start
Even if you are just starting out in your career or would like to reorient yourself in your job, there are many opportunities here. For example, there are various jobs in the medical field, accounting, in the commercial field or in education. The Post, the Federal Police, the Armed Forces, ministries or the justice sector are also among the public service employers. Here you have all the options open to you from a wide range of offers.
Attractive employer with many advantages
Working in the civil service in Germany offers many advantages. These include the possibility of an attractive work-life balance, so that work and family life can be easily combined. Employees benefit from flexible working time arrangements such as part-time and flexitime models as well as the possibility to work in a home office.
Public sector employers in Germany have been implementing extensive company health management for years. In addition, jobs in the public sector are secure and salaries are subject to collective bargaining agreements.
Special features of civil servant status
Civil servant status is not automatic and the state also obliges employees. When it comes to a civil service job, this entails various duties and rights. Unlike employees, for example, civil servants in Germany are forbidden by law to strike because of their duty of loyalty. In return, civil servants benefit from good social security. Civil servants cannot be dismissed against their will and they do not pay into the statutory pension scheme, but receive a civil servant pension after their active service.
