Dear financial accountants, HR managers, customer service representatives and colleagues, Berlin’s shared service centres (SCC) mainly have jobs in the finance and service sector. These are separate from the various business units of Berlin’s companies and are amalgamated in a financially independent framework.
In Berlin, around 48,000 colleagues work in one of the many shared service centres. Large companies such as Axel Springer and Coca-Cola, for example, have transferred their accounting and/or HR and some of their IT to an SSC. The travel portal, Opodo , handles its ordering and accounting for German-speaking markets via an SCC. And firms such as BASF, Parexel and Schindler Elevators have also established shared service centres in the capital. They are all potential employers, offering jobs in customer care, accounting, procurement, HR, IT and sales. Begin your job search now! It will be worth your while.
Studying in the Shared Service Centre sector
As more and more shared service centres are springing up on the River Spree, the demand for young, ambitious specialists is also increasing. More than 30 Berlin universities and colleges now offer over 300 courses in economics.
Be it Macro-Economics at Technische Universität Berlin, Business Administration at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin or Management & Marketing at Freie Universität Berlin – as a student, you can specialise in a wide range of subjects in Berlin.
