The prospect of moving to Germany for an engineering job can be daunting. We have many candidates who are nervous to move their entire life to pursue a career in another country. It’s understandable! But working in Germany can offer a wealth of opportunities to elevate your career to new heights…
As a huge industrial powerhouse, many large tech firms base themselves in Germany, and all these companies are in need of skilled engineers to work on ‘the next big thing’. Sectors we recruit for in Germany include space and satellite and automotive, meaning you could be working on technical projects that will have a global impact and really change people’s day to day lives.
Experience new cultures
Many of the roles are based in the main cities including Munich, Bremen and Frankfurt (so you’re never far from an airport if you do get homesick), allowing you to experience bustling city life with easy access to bars, restaurants, nightlife and events. Never miss Oktoberfest again! And if you’re an avid skier, you can reach ski slopes in an hour from Munich.
Many of our candidates become part of the community in their new city, as there are many opportunities to socialise and meet new people from all walks of life. There’s no need to worry about the language barrier as many large businesses in Germany work in English.
So if you’re stuck in a rut with your current engineering job, or simply feel like you are in need a change of scenery, why not consider Germany as your new adventure?
