Training place as a civil servant in the public administration; application for the competition

The selection procedure is the key to training places as a civil servant in public administration, in the judiciary and in the general law enforcement service. Only those who have successfully participated in the selection procedure of the Bavarian State Personnel Committee can secure one of the coveted training places.

Description

Every year, mainly in autumn, the Bavarian authorities offer training positions for entry into the second qualification level (formerly intermediate service) in the non-technical area of the civil service career path. In addition to the earnings potential during the 2-year training (over 1,300 euros gross per month), the crisis-proof and varied job afterwards is also an incentive to take this career path. There are training opportunities, for example, in the General Internal Administration, the Tax and State Finance Administration, the Administration of Justice and the Prisons, in the Social Administration as well as in the Public Archives and the Scientific and Public Libraries.

There is a central selection procedure for the allocation of training places, which is carried out by the Bavarian State Personnel Committee once a year in July, in the year before the training starts. The result of the selection procedure determines whether one is invited to an interview with the hiring authorities.

The selection procedure is a written examination that tests German language skills, general knowledge and logical and deductive reasoning ability. In addition, the school grades from the subjects German and mathematics or accounting are included.
