Working at the HZI
To ensure top quality research we need top quality employees. Your creativity and innovative capabilities are the basis for the long-term success of our work. That's why we undertake a great deal to attract the best people to us. An important aim of our work is to continuously support and promote the motivation and dedication of our staff. Our young and talented researchers, for example, are trained and prepared for future tasks in a special program designed to develop credentials in science management. We support your career planning with individual coaching. We also offer a special service to our foreign colleagues and guests: in the spring of 2005, we opened our "International Office". The office provides foreign staff members with unbureaucratic assistance to get them started in their new jobs.
Family and Career
The Audit berufundfamilie® assists employers to implement family-friendly personnel policies. To improve the balance between work and family, the Helmholtz Centre offers family-friendly policies in very different places. The most important prerequisites for an effective reconciliation is a reliable advice, organization and support of employees in the following areas:
- Demand-oriented child and family care
- The service centre to balance work and family gives all employees information on ways of family support services.
