Personnel consulting for the public service

Your personnel consulting in the public service sector

Being in the service of the state means one thing above all: Diversity and security. Whether it be at the federal government, the federal states, municipalities and communities or in the areas of social insurance or institutions and foundations in the field of public law – wherever you look, specialists and executive managers are highly sought after. What adds to this is the competition with companies in the free-market economy as well as challenging tendering procedures and tender conditions.

As the largest employer in Germany, the public service sector with currently 4.6 million employees is confronted with demographic change and, thus, the shortage of skilled workers. In the course of the digitalisation, responsibilities, processes as well as hardware and software will change as well – new competences of employees and temporary assignments, e.g. via temporary work in the public service sector, are therefore in demand. Finding specialists and executive managers which drive the "digital revolution" and ensure a reliable state: That is the credo in the public service sector.

Hays is your reliable supplier with extensive knowledge of the market and procurement law. Regardless of whether it is an award without tender, a public or restricted tender or a preliminary call for tenders: Our employees are trained in German Construction Contract Procedures (VOL) or EVB-IT contract conditions (contracts that contain supplementing contractual terms necessary to obtain performance in the IT).
