Kulturnetzwerk Neukölln provides people who have been unemployed for an extended period with an opportunity to re-enter the job market. The organisation's emphasis is on cultural activity.
Every year, we place around sixty residents of Neukölln in our member organisations. The majority of these jobs involve either office work, visitor support, artisans's work or other forms of technical support, public relations, graphic design as well as event and exhibition management.
Presently, several of these initiatives co-ordinate and administer arrangements for the employment of individuals who have been unemployed for a longer period. They then receive an allowance as while working in what is called the MAE in German (Arbeitsgelegenheiten mit Mehraufwandsentschädigung) and the "Teilhabe am Arbeitsplatz" (participation at places of work) programme.
Additionally, since 2013, we offer so-called Jobcoaching, providing individual, confidential career counselling, including (further-) education and qualification for people who then work within the Kulturnetzwerk Neukölln e.V. or other comparable organsations..
Kulturnetzwerk Neukölln employs eighteen full-time members of staff as well as a number of part-timers.
