Find your work-life balance.

Are you on the lookout for a secure, well-paid job with flexible working hours and all kinds of development opportunities? Then this is exactly the right place for you. Because THE LÄND offers all that – not to mention anything else you might need for a happy life. Fantastic jobs and an attractive living environment. In other words, excellent (job) prospects – for everyone.

“Creating the future” is something of a tradition here.

We register more than 15 000 patents every year in THE LÄND. That says it all, really, doesn’t it? Baden-Württemberg is THE LÄND of tinkerers, inventors and makers. No one invests more in research and development than we do – 5.8% of our gross domestic product. That’s not just a huge sum, it tops the rankings in international comparisons. Perhaps that is why there is nowhere else in the world where you will find as many market leaders all constantly searching for clever minds and bright ideas – maybe even yours.

Did you know …

… that the car, the bicycle, the chainsaw and the match are all inventions that originated in Baden-Württemberg? And that’s just a selection. THE LÄND is not only home to 11 million people – it’s the home of big, revolutionary ideas.

From idea to start-up

Have you got an idea? A talent? Or a vision? You want to shape the future yourself? Welcome to THE LÄND! Whether you are looking for start-up funding, registration for a patent, advanced training, a career or simply a broadening of your horizons: Baden-Württemberg will make it possible.

Here you can find out about patent registration and more information about founding your start-up can be found at Start-up BW.

It’s all possible in THE LÄND. Whether you’ve just finished school – or are already well established in your career.

Work. Life.

While everyone else is still working on their work-life balance – here in THE LÄND, we are enjoying ours already. With all sorts of fantastic job opportunities, and a high quality of life.

Live in THE LÄND

First work – then pleasure?

In THE LÄND, we combine the two. With attractive job opportunities in an appealing environment. This includes flexible working time models, low unemployment levels, and good salaries and development opportunities for people of all ages. So you can look forward to excellent prospects, both in your professional life and in your free time – for you and your family.

Trying to raise your children and develop your career at the same time?

No problem. We know that it is not always easy to balance a career with family life. But in THE LÄND, we do everything we can to help you do so. By expanding child-care provision, for example. And our companies will also do what they can to accommodate your needs – with in-house kindergartens for your little ones, for example, or flexible working time models, to make it easier for you to get back into work. Sounds good? We think so, too!

Fitness at work

Sport and Baden-Württemberg – a great combination, possible even at your place of work, with in-house fitness studios, climbing opportunities, Qigong and all sorts of other organised activities to help you burn off excess energy, work out and maintain your fitness. It’s always good to work at work not just for the company, but also for and on yourself. And we all know that exercise stimulates the mind, don’t we?
