Senior Experten Service

(SES) is the Foundation of German Industry for International Cooperation (Stiftung der deutschen Wirtschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit). It is a non-profit organization.

SES offers interested retirees the opportunity to pass on their skills and knowledge to others, both within Germany and abroad. They work in a voluntary capacity as Senior Experts, helping to train both specialist workers and management staff. They help others to help themselves – an important contribution towards safeguarding a small slice of the future. It is a system that benefits all parties.

Senior Experts generally work in small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as with providers of vocational training and health care services, but it is also employed by such organizations and institutions as the German Agency for International Cooperation (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit – GIZ). The duration of these honorary assignments ranges usually from three to six weeks; the maximum duration is six months. A Senior Expert can be requested for follow-up assignments to ensure the sustainability of his or her work.

At the beginning of 2017, more than 12,000 highly motivated professionals from different segments of trade and industry were registered at SES.

The motto of SES is: Future needs experience!

SES and Tek4Kids have collaborated on building projects at St. Therese Montessori School in Jeremie, Haiti. The most recent project included building a computer room for students and teachers.
