Qualified specialists

The general shortage in qualified workers affects Berlin, too, but Berlin has the advantage of being at the centre of a region that’s home to about six million people. Companies looking for well-qualified specialists find great potential in here. Berlin has the highest per capita density of researchers and university graduates in Germany. More than 30,000 new graduates enter the city’s labour market every year.

An important competitive advantage is the city’s international attractiveness. Berlin attracts professionals from all over the world. People from about 170 nations live and work here.

Companies planning to hire new staff can take advantage of various funding opportunities and programmes to train, recruit, and qualify specialists offered by the Federal Government and the State of Berlin.
