Talent Network

People are the foundation of change

Achieving the changes we seek means we must attract, retain and develop people with relevant expertise. So we will establish a network of the most talented people in child and youth development worldwide, a talent pool that extends our capacity to secure change.

The Jacobs Talent Network will include fellowship programs for key groups — researchers, journalists, (social) entrepreneurs and politicians — and give great strength to our alumni activities. Conferences and workshops at Marbach Castle on Lake Constance and at the Jacobs Haus in Zurich will bring their energies and skills together to tackle the difficult questions in our field.

The Jacobs Talent Network will seek out outstanding individuals who are interested and ready to work with us as preferred partners in the design and implementation of our programs as well as in our content marketing, be it as employee, experts, strategic or operational partners.
We want to be an employer and partner of choice.
