Our core Plant-a-Talent team

At present, we have a staff of 12 persons working at our office in Munich. Our team is a mixture of full-time and part-time staff, freelancers, and a great group of students and volunteers who support us. Many team members have an immigrant background or were once themselves refugees. They not only understand the situation and challenges facing our candidates who come to us seeking support, but also often speak their languages.

We gladly welcome anyone who wishes to strengthen the team!
