Dual Career Service – Exploring new paths together
The Dual Career Service (DCS) offered by the University of Siegen specifically addresses the needs of the accompanying partners and families of newly appointed professors as well as new, permanent junior researchers and administrative staff. It assists them to explore career opportunities and provides helpful tools and information to help them settle in the Siegen region.
We are well aware of the multitude of challenges which moving to a new city brings to you, your partner and family. When considering a new position involving relocation, the question of how to align this with your partner's career and family life plays a major role. How will your partner be able to pursue his/her career in the new region? How will childcare or care for any dependent relatives be organized? What schools are available? Where can you find housing? What formalities have to be complied with? What leisure activities are available in the Siegen region?
The University of Siegen Dual Career Service is your point of contact for all questions related to balancing your career and your family. Our services are based on your individual support requirements. Please get in touch, so we can help you make your transition to Siegen as comfortable as possible for you and your family.
We see ourselves as a service partner and facilitator. However, please understand that we cannot guarantee to find employment for your partner or a place in a childcare facility for your children.
