Disbandment and Closure of Employment Agencies
Published: 14 November 2017
Disbandment and Closure of Employment Agencies in Paderborn, Sennelager and Bielefeld

On Thursday 2 November 2017, Commander British Forces Germany addressed the Locally Engaged Civilian Workforce regarding imminent action to close the employment agencies in Paderborn, Sennelager and Bielefeld. This action directly relates to the closure of Headquarters British Forces Germany and has implications on the locally employed workforce.

Following direction in the 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) and as confirmed on 5 March 2013 by the Secretary of State for Defence; the British Army will rebase from Germany by 2020. The Ministry of Defence confirmed on 5 November 2015 that the final Field Army units would withdraw from Germany in 2019. As a consequence of this rebasing instruction, Commander British Forces Germany has decided that the Agencies in Paderborn, Sennelager and Bielefeld are to disband and close on 31 December 2019. This decision will mean job losses for those locally employed civilians employed by these Agencies.

The British Command in Germany will strive to ensure that DEL employees are supported as far as possible with the transition from their current employment. Retraining opportunities will be made available and staff will be provided with a notice period of at least 12 months, where possible. Headquarters British Forces Germany has a dedicated team responsible for providing guidance and assistance to current employees and they will also play an active role in providing training courses in liaison with the Agentur für Arbeit. Employees will be given paid time off for appointments to consult with those representatives and for participating in early profiling exercises. Where operationally feasible, DEL employees will be released from work on continued full payment of salary to attend training courses organised either through the Agentur für Arbeit or other training providers. In addition, paid release from work may also be granted for work experience and attendance at job interviews. Our Dependant staff will also be fully supported throughout this period.

Information on further re-basing activities scheduled for 2018 and 2019 will be published when final details are known.

It's poignant, but we all knew it was coming sooner or later. There's a beginning and an end to everything and BAOR is no exception. However we still have this wonderful web page to keep us together and re-live the old times. Not only were they old, they were GOOD times!

Cheers!

I guess there'll be some kind of final ceremony, (probably with a Bundeswehr band playing "Will Ye No Come Back Again") somewhere or other in Germany. Maybe it will be time for the King of Procrastinators to finally make it over there for the big event, especially if there's free beer and food, after 52 years.

Actually, my big excuse for not visiting the old haunts is due to other people I soldiered with  regretting their trips to see their old barracks and environs, which seems to fall under the You Can't Go Home Again Act. Just a quick look at Google Earth seems to substantiate that, however maybe I should just grit my teeth and go, especially if the free beer is cold and the free food plentiful. I'll even turn off the lights if I manage to empty the keg!

Do you think so, I won't be holding my breath. A couple of years ago we were in Scotland on holiday when we got chatting to two German girls who were on the "Whisky Trail", they were probably mid to late 20s. One girl was from Hamburg and the other from Essen, when they asked where we learnt to speak German we explained that we had been stationed with the British Army in various locations in NRW. Neither of them knew that there had been a British Army presence in Germany, I could understand the girl from Hamburg being unaware, but the girl from Essen?
