About us:

The Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM) supports short-term assignments of experts in volunteer roles. CIM is jointly run by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the German Federal Employment Agency. It has been providing a combination of development and labour market policy expertise since 1980. CIM’s returning experts programme focuses on the transfer of knowledge in specific areas. We do this by recruiting people from one of our partner countries who have studied or worked in Germany and placing them with local employers in their home country. Our aim is to find exactly the right position for you, where you can use your knowledge, experience and contacts to everyone’s benefit – yourself as a returning expert, but also your employer, your home country and, not least, Germany.
