for qualified professionals

Schleswig-Holstein not only offers international professionals the chance to realise their career dreams in the "true north of Germany", but also makes them want to spend their free time here doing leisure activities. Schleswig-Holstein offers a professional environment with a strong middle class and worldwide successful companies in future industries. Due to the proximity to Scandinavia in the north and the metropolitan region of Hamburg in the south, many companies inside the federal state maintain good networks and work together in an international environment, offer flat hierarchies, fast promotion opportunities and family-friendly working models. Numerous projects and initiatives in the state provide good conditions for entering the job market and for further professional training. 
At the same time, 1,190 kilometres of coastline on the North and Baltic Sea invite you to go for walks or do water sports such as sailing or kiteboarding.
