Hello Miso:
Of course, it is possible to find jobs in Germany in which German language is not required. Generally, the Federal Employment Agency is responsible for dealing with job vacancies in Germany. Refugees can register themselves at one of these offices (known in German as Agentur für Arbeit) if they are searching for work. There, they are able to receive advice or assistance.
These websites can be useful:

- http://www.thelocal.de/jobs/
- http://www.make-it-in-germany.com/en/for-qualified-professionals/working/guide/looking-for-a-job

There are also many private initiatives which specialize in bringing refugees and employers together. In many cities and towns, some local refugee centers also have notice boards, which are worth checking out.

It's also possible to just approach local businesses for work. Currently, there are job vacancies in parts of the hospitality business, in trades and in certain specialized professions. A list of sectors where there are job vacancies can be found here:

Hi Miso,

the Telekom is also offering Internships. That's a perfect possibility to start in a Job in Germany.

They are offering three-month internships in many German cities, such as Bonn, Cologne, Munich, Berlin, Darmstadt, etc.
It's paid with 400€ to 1000€ per month depending on the type of internship.
The internships are in these areas: IT, telecommunications, project management, customer service, reporting/ controlling, marketing, human resources and some more.
Unfortunately many of the job offers are written in german. But there are also some written in english. http://www.telekom.com/careers/students/Fluechtlinge/290642

Hope that helps^^
