What we offer

Child Care

A successful personnel policy and the guarantee of family-orientated working conditions are closely linked. Provision of the appropriate conditions is therefore not only an expression of changed values, but also a practical necessity for securing the continuing success of the enterprise.

We appreciate professional motivation and great commitment. Therefore we offer our employees accompanying services to support the reconciliation of family and work..

At our headquarters in Karlsruhe we can offer our employees a special facility. Together with the city of Karlsruhe and the enterprise “educcare” we have set up our own day care centre for children. This will enable our employees to return to their career sooner. .

In our children’s day care centre “Wasserflöhe” (‘water fleas’) 20 places are available to employees of federal authorities in this region for children between the ages of six months and six years.

Dual Career

A scientific career requires high mobility and high temporal flexibility. If both partners work as scientists respectively are interested in a professional career, they will have to face special challenges regarding the reconciliation of family and work.

BAW's Dual Career Service especially addresses partners of new employees which want to find together - both professionally and privately - a new home in Karlsruhe.

By the membership in the 'Dual Career Network of the Karlsruhe Region' BAW cooperates with many research institutes and companies within Karlsruhe and its surroundings.

We offer support by providing contact addresses of research institutes and companies as well as information on the city of Karlsruhe and its various social institutions.
