Skilled workers are continually being sought in the automotive, logistics and transportation sectors and are also welcome in metalworking, mechanical engineering, the chemical industry and agriculture.

Far-reaching changes will take place in the employment market in the next few years. On the one hand, our economy is growing, even booming, and needs an ever-increasing supply of qualified skilled workers. On the other hand, every few years more and more qualified skilled workers are leaving the workplace because they have reached retirement age. These workers have to be replaced and because of demographic changes they cannot all be recruited from within the region. This is why qualified personnel from other regions of Germany and abroad are more than welcome in this location.
