Placing integrated experts - what we offer experts from Germany and other EU states

Are you highly qualified with extensive career experience? Are you eager to make a contribution, interested in other countries and looking for a challenge in the field of international cooperation?

Integrated experts are specialists from Germany and other EU member states who put their skills to good use in key positions in developing countries and emerging economies. They work directly for an employer in the country of assignment on a local contract and are fully integrated into the local structures – hence the name ‘integrated expert’. Once the placement process has been completed, integrated experts are paid a salary that is based on customary local rates which is topped up by CIM (through GIZ).
