The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) was established on 1 January 2011. It brings together under one roof the long-standing expertise of the German Development Service (DED), the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) and InWEnt – Capacity Building International, Germany. As a federally owned enterprise, it supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. We are also engaged in international education work around the globe.
GIZ operates in many fields, including economic development and employment; governance and democracy; security, reconstruction, peace building and civil conflict transformation; food security, health and basic education; and environmental protection, resource conservation and climate change mitigation.
The project ‘Advisory services in support of the welcome portal “Make it in Germany”’ provides support for the collective campaign by the German Federal Ministries of Economics and Technology (BMWi), and of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS), and the Federal Employment Agency (BA), to attract skilled foreign labour to Germany. In particular it supports the new welcome portal ‘Make it in Germany’ (under the responsibility of BMWi) with individual pilot measures in India, Indonesia and Viet Nam. This should inspire more experts to immigrate to Germany.
The commissioning party for the project is BMWi. On the part of GIZ, implementation of the project rests with the Department for Migration (FGE Migration), which also employs a project manager (based in Bonn) to coordinate the whole project.
As the main component of the project is the deployment of local advisors in the pilot countries – functioning as local representatives of the welcome portal – GIZ is now looking for a professional and dynamic Indonesian national to fill the following position:
