The Welcome Center Thuringia is the first contact point for foreign people who want to live, study, work or do a vocational training in Thuringia. It also supports Thuringian employers who are interested in employing people from abroad. Additionally, the Welcome Center offers information for interested residents, associations, organisations, and other interested institutions.
The Welcome Center Thuringia provides information about the following topics:
The Welcome Center, therefore, has an important supporting role and can help finding the right contact person.
The International Placement Services (Zentrale Auslands- und Fachvermittlung – ZAV) is a service of the Federal Employment Agency which cooperates with local institutions and searches worldwide for skilled personnel.
In the European Union and in the EEA countries the ZAV cooperates with the EURopean Employment Services (EURES) which is a job mobility portal offering information, advice and support for job seekers and employers.
Point of contact for employers:
In addition to EURES, interested employers can also contact the European service offices. Those are local actors with various contacts to institutions in other European countries which can offer employers alternative access to foreign workers and skilled personnel. Some of the European service offices organise business trips abroad for local companies to possible business partners and to educational institutions in other member states.
After a successful recruitment, the European service offices offer support in integrating the new employees on a long-term basis. Here, the offices closely collaborate with local existing structures and offers.
Some of the European service offices also advise about the organisation and implementation of mobility projects. Through those projects employers can offer their employees professional experience abroad and provide other European workers with an internship and insight into the work processes of the business.
Each one of the planning regions offers one European service office.
