About us

SST is a temporary employment agency and has been acting on behalf of the US Army since 2006. We are specialized on providing civilian personnel as role players and translators for military exercises, the so called Civilians on the Battlefield or COBs.

Our COBs support the NATO Forces in their preparation for deployment to conflict regions. The objective of these exercises is for the soldiers to learn to properly interact with foreign cultures in different countries. With the help of our COBs they are familiarized with the language, religion, customs and morals.

We prepare our employees precisely for their roles in close cooperation with our customer, the US Forces and accompany them for the duration of the exercise. This approach develops the basis for ideal training results and supports the training for soldiers in a challenging environment.

To date the US Army COB program has an excellent reputation within the NATO Forces.


New Contract 2019

Dear employees,

Good news! We are applying for the new COB contract, which will be put out to tender again by the US Army in November 2018. The first rotation under the new contract is expected in June 2019.

As before, SST offers fair wages, a friendly working atmosphere and employment contracts subject to social security. What’s new is that up to 150 employees with an acting talent and very good German and English skills will also have the chance to get a permanent position and to be part of every rotation.

All SST employees who are already registered with us, can now inform us of any changes to their personal data (eg address changes, new ID card number, new telephone number, etc.), so that there will be no unnecessary delays in the obligatory security check and we can reach you. Of course we look forward to new employees, please just download the application form from our homepage.

We would be so happy to see you again, keep your fingers crossed for us!
