Carl Duisberg Centren is seeking companies that can offer job shadowing placements in the Düsseldorf area for highly qualified Ukrainian professionals.
The job shadowing is part of the MP Sonderinitiative Ukraine, an initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) to support displaced executives from Ukraine who are temporarily staying in Germany.
The goal is to contribute to Ukraine's reconstruction and approximation to the EU internal market by promoting qualified decision-makers and international cooperation.
The Special Initiative programme lasts a total of 11 weeks and is divided into the following five phases:

- The first shadowing phase, lasting 4 weeks, will take place from October 16th to November 10th, 2023. The focus will be on familiarizing participants with the processes in host companies and simulating management tasks (4 weeks).
- The intermediate training will follow the first internship phase from November 13th to November 17th, 2023. The focus will be on self-reflection, readjustment of learning objectives, and advanced skills training (1 week).
- The second shadowing phase, also lasting 4 weeks, will take place from November 20th to December 15th, 2023. The focus will be on consolidating the acquired knowledge and expanding contacts, taking into account any necessary readjustment of learning objectives (4 weeks).
- The one-week closing training from December 18th to December 22nd, 2023, will be dedicated to systematic reflection and final feedback (1 week).
The programme is designed to be family-friendly, with participants working an average of 6.5 hours per day, five days a week.
