Vocational Training

Since 2003, the German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS) has trained young people to become Office Communication Managers (Kaufleute für Büromanagement). The tasks of the Service Facilities at our research institute are manifold. During the three years of training, our apprentices learn to use modern communication technology as well as general word processing. Furthermore, they get to know assistant responsibilities, financial accounting, human resource management and the internal travel department. In addition, they learn about other general administrative tasks. After having completed their training at IDOS, our apprentices are able to work in any private enterprise or business, public administration, association or with our employers. IDOS offers a total of three apprenticeship training positions. If you are interested to join our Institute, you should have a medium level of education (Fachoberschulreife), computer skills, very good command of German and good command of English as well as a good general education. In addition, possible job candidates should be interested to learn and work on your own responsibility and enjoy working with other people, also coming from different cultures. Currently, IDOS trains three apprentices from the first up to the third year of training.
