Plant-a-Talent is a non-profit organization that actively supports motivated:

  • Refugees,
  • Recognized asylum seekers,
  • Asylum seekers awaiting an appeal decision
  • Immigrants, and
  • Under-privileged individuals

with their integration into German society and with their job search.  We refer to all members of these target groups as “Candidates” at Plant-a-Talent.

With our tailor-made process, we do our best to make fair participation in the German labor market a reality. To attain our successful results, we have designed and implemented a series of helpful programs that prepare candidates for successful professional employment.

Since April 2019, we have helped fill more than 220 job vacancies in Munich. We attribute our success to the fact that we personally coach and support each candidate on an individual basis with their job preparation and job search process.

Be it large corporations or small companies, we send prospective employers selected applicants who really fit the job description. With Plant-a-Talent, one finds talented candidates where personal and professional growth and development, integration and successful employment benefit everyone.

If you are looking for highly motivated and talented candidates from all over the world  to support and contribute to your company, please contact us. We can help you find the right person for your team and also support you during the candidate’s first months of employment at your company.

We encourage open-minded company volunteers – as part of your firm’s CSR program – to support our candidates as they learn their new job and integrate into German society.

Milestones reached in 2018 - Plant-a-Talent registered 107 new candidates, less than expected due to the border closings. Together with our dedicated volunteers, we mentored and coached about 65 candidates with integration and job preparation workshops. Since our foundation in April 2016, we have supported over 220 of our candidates find successful employment in Munich.

Twelve participants successfully completed our Basic Computer Literacy Course (BCL) which was re-started in October 2018. A further 18 candidates had the opportunity to participate in a new job preparation and job search (self-help) workshop taught by goetzpartners consultants. goetzpartners, a Munich based management consulting firm, helps our team and dedicated volunteers with interview simulations and we personally advise each participant on their job search. goetzpartners’ consultants support us on a pro-bono basis and we are very thankful for their very helpful workshop.

Since 2018 and continuing into 2019, the renowned international law firm, Baker McKenzie, has generously supported Plant-a-Talent with quarterly charitable corporate donations as part of their Blumenstrauß Program. In lieu of receiving flowers for birthdays or anniversaries, Baker McKenzie employees donate their flower gifts to Plant-a-Talent. We most appreciate Baker McKenzie’s dedication to our programs and hope other law firms and companies will follow their example with a similar program.

In 2018, we decided to expand our target group of possible candidates to include all immigrants as well as under-privileged individuals. We wish to place a particular emphasis on supporting women of all back grounds and we are presently designing new workshops to be offered in June 2019 for this broader target audience.
