A meaningful job:
Build your career at the Charité

Behind the scenes at the Charité:
Working at Germany's best university clinic

Efficient management is necessary with 20.000 employees, 2.3 billion euros in revenue, 800,000 patients a year and 9,000 students. And this is where you come in!

Media coverage of the Charité usually focuses on the doctors, researchers or nursing professionals who do a great job at the Charité. For example, they have developed the world's first Covid-19 test. Such achievements are made possible by the efficient administration in the background, which ensures smooth processes.
IT staff, purchasing, HR staff and many other employees work behind the scenes at Europe’s largest university hospital. Whether office work or innovative digitization projects, every task is important and contributes to one goal: developing the medicine of tomorrow.

Public service 2.0: Management with room to grow

The Charité with its numerous business divisions and administrative offices is on the move. Digitization along with construction projects and strategic growth are bringing along significant change. Employees – established or new, young or old – can proactively help shape this change. The Charité has always promoted innovative ideas and given space to their realization. Come to the Charité – it has never been more exciting!

Public service away from clichés

The Charité’s success is based on a spirit of innovation. This can also be felt outside the laboratories. Our employees are motivated by the mission of society and cooperate to make tomorrow's medicine possible.

Granted, there are some digitization projects in the pipeline to eliminate all the bureaucratic stumbling blocks at the Charité. But the clichéd image that many have of public administration has long been outdated. At the Charité, multidisciplinary teams successfully employ innovative methods. Everything follows a clear strategy: the Charité Strategy 2030. Fulfillment, yay! Overtime, nah!

A diverse range of tasks

There is virtually nothing that is impossible at the Charité. With 18 business divisions, numerous administrative offices and more than 100 clinics and wards, administrative employees are involved in a wide variety of tasks. Be it in human resources, the legal department, controlling, the construction department or something else. Numerous specialists work hand in hand to continuously improve and digitize Europe’s most successful hospital.

IT away from profit orientation

The Charité needs IT support and to expand the workforce to implement its many digitization projects. We don't always offer the latest technology stack, but we do offer a number of benefits that you won't find at other companies: You can accompany projects that will shape the German health care system. This socially significant work has a very tangible impact on people's quality of life. And even better: It is not about profit. We focus on our employees, patients and on the medicine of the future and not on corporate valuation and investors. If you are looking for meaningful work, then you have come to the right place!

Career and training

The Charité provides employees with a range of advanced training options. A learning platform, the library and the many free seminars and courses allow everyone to further their education in a wide variety of areas, even those with little overlap with their actual field of work. Of course, it is also possible to arrange external training and certification. Or do some job shadowing at a ward or other departments to promote networking and the sharing of knowledge.

We regularly see major career moves within the organization. Equal opportunities are always taken into account making sure that no one is disadvantaged on the basis of gender or age. Younger employees can also have management positions here. If you want to achieve something, you are in good hands at the Charité.

Work-life balance and family friendliness

Family friendliness has a particularly high priority at the Charité. We have numerous programs and contact points to support parents. In general, everyone has the opportunity to create a healthy balance for work and private life. This is ensured on the one hand by the fair labor agreement with 30 days' vacation and all the other benefits of the public sector, and on the other hand by the flexibility of the divisions. Depending on the scope of duties, it is also possible to work from home, for example. Additional counseling centers will provide any support necessary to master difficult life situations.
