The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is the German state’s main development agency, providing services and funding in the field of international aid and cooperation.
DevelopmentAid, in collaboration with GIZ, invites organizations and individuals interested in learning about avenues of working together with GIZ to join the webinar “How to do business with GIZ? Best practices in the recruitment process”. The event will offer a unique opportunity to learn about how the agency works with third-party experts as well as practical information about finding employment within GIZ.
The recruitment process refers to the process of discovering, interviewing, and hiring experts, employees, and development professionals to implement projects funded by GIZ. The agency is continuously looking for individuals and companies with expertise in the development aid sector, but, as GIZ has strict regulations and a somewhat unique recruitment process, only a limited number of professionals are able to access it.
GIZ is technically a private, limited-liability company (GmbH) but works very closely with the federal government of Germany to implement its foreign policy goals. GIZ was established in 2011 by the merger of three existing German development agencies and now employs approximately 22,000 people in more than 120 countries.
