The Federal Employment Agency (Bundesagentur für Arbeit, BA) is the largest service provider in the German job market. As a self-governing public body, it acts independently within the relevant legal frameworks. The BA provides a wide range of services to both citizens and companies and institutions in the employment and education markets. It has a large network of agencies and job centers (joint facilities) across the country where it provides its services. The agency’s employees inform citizens of employment and educational opportunities and provide advice on vocational training and further education. The Federal Employment Agency is additionally responsible for measures designed to create and maintain jobs, such as promoting professional and vocational training and helping to get people with disabilities into work. Its role also includes paying unemployment, insolvency and child benefits, carrying out research into the job market and careers and producing statistics.
