Job Profile

Always wondered...

…what a reception assistant actually does?

The reception area is the beating heart of every office. Employees who work at reception are the first point of contact for our clients. Reception assistants are responsible for a wide range of varied tasks: from accepting applications and collecting data, to clarifying questions related to laws on benefits, forward issues to internal departments and managing scheduling at the location. They also need to register, process and forward mail to the back office. In order to comprehensively respond to client queries, the reception area works closely with inclusion specialists and the specialist departments.

…what assistants and clerks responsible for granting benefits do?

These employees are in charge of approving and paying benefits governed by the second book of the German Social Code (SGB II). As queries are often broad and the legal bases are complex, this task requires a high degree of concentration and knowledge of the corresponding legislation. Employees responsible for granting benefits provide our clients with competent and helpful advice in one-to-one conversations. Working with in-house inclusion specialists and our network partners, they develop solutions for the individual, often difficult living circumstances experienced by clients.

…what inclusion specialists do?

Employees who work in advisory & placement services help our clients find suitable jobs or apprenticeships and keep their positions in the long term.

Our in-house inclusion specialists maintain a close dialogue with the benefits department and employer services.

At the Hamburg Youth Employment Agency, our employees help clients under the age of 25 enter the workforce, which involves working closely with career advisers and the youth welfare service.

….what a case manager is responsible for?

Our case managers support clients in particularly problematic situations, e.g. addictions, mental illness or debt. They work together with the person concerned to work through any issues that require action and suitable help is offered – always in consultation with the person concerned and on a voluntary basis. As every issue is personal, there’s no set plan on how to manage it. We work with external partners, who help the person concerned define and reach their goals.

…what advisory & placement specialists do in joint employer services?

Joint employer services employees provide personal, industry-specific advice to assist companies looking for workers. They create job posts, look for suitable applicants and grant employers access to financial assistance offered in accordance with SGB II and III.
