Press Release Oberfinanzdirektion Karlsruhe

Start of training for the junior staff in the middle service of the tax administration

Extensive hygiene concept and mobile air purification devices in the classrooms enable face-to-face teaching

On 15 September, 408 junior staff members will start their training in the middle service of the tax administration. Their training will begin with the first theoretical part of the course at the training centres of the tax administration in Freiburg and Schwäbisch-Gmünd Oberfinanzdirektion Karlsruhe at the locations in Freiburg and Schwäbisch-Gmünd

In order to ensure that the lessons can be held in the presence of the students, the Oberfinanzdirektion Karlsruhe developed a comprehensive hygiene concept. In addition, the classrooms in the training centres are equipped with mobile air purification devices as an additional infection control measure.

"In this way, we make it possible for the new aspirants to have face-to-face teaching and offer them the opportunity for direct exchange with their colleagues and the lecturers," says Jutta Nickerl, Vice-President of the Oberfinanzdirektion Karlsruhe.

The school graduates, who are aiming for the career of the middle service, will be trained for two years in theory in one of the two training centres of the Oberfinanzdirektion Karlsruhe in Schwäbisch Gmünd and Freiburg, respectively, as well as in practice at a tax office

The career opportunities for the young colleagues in the tax administration are very good. In principle, all graduates who have successfully passed the career examination can be taken on immediately as probationary civil servants. In addition, demographic change allows for prompt promotions.

"The need for young recruits remains high and will remain high in the coming years," Nickerl continued.

The Tax Administration is also an extremely attractive employer when it comes to work-life balance. The tax administration offers a wide range of part-time, home-based and teleworking options

The professional fields of application are manifold. In the 65 tax offices of the state there is the possibility - depending on personal interest - to work in the office or in the field. In addition, there is also the possibility of working at the Oberfinanzdirektion in Karlsruhe and the Ministry of Finance Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart both in the tax area and in the cross-sectional areas such as personnel administration or organisation.

The application process for the start of training in 2022 is already underway. Further information can be found here.
