Work in Bavaria

The growing need for qualified personnel represents one of the biggest challenges that companies from all industrialised nations will be facing in the near future, with demographic shift and globalisation affecting Bavaria as well. However, Bavarian companies profit from a wide range of location advantages in the competition for the finest minds:

Around the globe, Bavaria is well known and valued for its quality of life: So, why not work where others go on holiday? Moreover, Bavaria is also the number one place for opportunity: Above-average long-term growth paired with state-of-the-art technology translates into high-quality, well-paid jobs and excellent perspectives for the future. Simultaneously, Bavaria's traditionally very strong SME sector provides interesting jobs and career opportunities.

Families are also in great hands in Bavaria: Bavarian schools were among the front-runners in the PISA test. The premium portfolio of institutions of higher education throughout the state ensures that everyone can make the best out of his or her talents. Furthermore, families particularly benefit from Bavaria being one of the safest states in Germany.

The appealing living and working conditions are also reflected in population development. Since the early 90s, around 1.3 million people have made the decision to move to Bavaria. Bavaria's Ministry of Economic Affairs wants to contribute to this trend continuing. In the competition for qualified personnel, "Bavaria’s head start" will be applied diligently so that the people in Bavaria can optimally realise their full potential to perform.
