Finding, attracting and developing talent

Human resources development and opportunities in the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft

In order to win over excellent minds and to keep them loyal to the organization, the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft is offering talented scientists and talented support staff a wide range of measures and services as part of a structured talent management programme. These measures range from recruitment through to transfer to the scientific and business community.

The goal of the HR Development & Opportunities Department is to enable strategy-oriented, systematic career advancement at the Max Planck Institutes at all career levels and throughout the entire talent management process. We have developed a wide range of measures in the context of personnel recruitment, loyalty and development.

During the phases • Attract & Recruit • Welcome & Onboard • Develop & Retain • Navigate & Transfer • the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft offers attractive programmes, measures, services and networks that open up a wide range of attractive career opportunities for individual staff during and after the period spent working for one of the world’s most prestigious research institutions.
