Working in Germany: the official website
for qualified professionals


Schleswig-Holstein not only offers international professionals the chance to realise their career dreams in the "real North", but also makes them want to spend their free time here doing leisure activities. 
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. 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 Seas invite you to go for walks or water sports such as sailing or kiteboarding.
