From January 2013, DESY cooperates with the Europe GmbH family service with the aim of improving the compatibility of family and job within the framework of a family-friendly human resources management.

A comprehensive database is offered with information and contacts in the field of child care, elder care, pets, and house and garden. An online platform provides individual information for everyone and helps to find the most convenient service or care offer.

The use of the database is free of charge for DESY staff members, all care services must be paid individually. Europe GmbH helps to find care solutions which are compatible with the individual financial situation and indicates the possibility to apply for support at the youth welfare office.

You have also the possibility to create your own job profile on for free and offer your own service or help (for tutoring, baby sitting, pet sitting).
