We are delighted that you would like to apply for a job at GIZ. Please note that we only accept applications submitted via our online application system. Below is some information about registration and the technical requirements for using the system.

Logging in
Once you have registered, your password will be sent to you by email. If you copy the password from the email, please make sure you do not inadvertently copy any spaces. The password must be at least 6 characters long and include at least one number.

You haven’t received an email
Some email providers may mistake messages from us for spam. Please check your spam folder regularly to make sure you receive all the information relating to your application.

Forgotten your password?
Under ‘Applicant login’, click ‘Request new password’ and enter the email address you used to register. Within a few minutes you should receive a new password. For security reasons, you will be asked to change this the next time you log in.

Application status in your account

‘Applications in progress’ are drafts that you have not yet submitted. You can change these and then submit them provided you do so before the submission deadline. ‘Sent applications’ are already on our desks and can no longer be changed or supplemented.

Email address already registered

If this message appears, it means you are already registered with us under the email address you have given. If this happens, go to the login section, click ‘Request new password’ and enter your email address to receive a new password.

Setting up a job subscription

We offer a job subscription service that will inform you of any vacancies that might interest you. All you have to do is search for a vacancy in our job opportunities section. The search results page contains a box where you can enter your email address to activate the job subscription.
