About us

Our services for securing skilled labour 

The Welcome Centers in Baden-Württemberg support small and medium-sized enterprises in particular as a central and comprehensive point of contact, providing initial advice and information on issues relating to the recruitment and successful integration of international professionals. At the same time, the Welcome Centers are also an important point of contact for international professionals and their families as well international students. Initial support covers topics such as entry and residence regulations, information on the regional labour market and its companies, job search and application, recognition of professional qualifications and German language courses. 

The Welcome Center Ostwürttemberg is financed by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economics, Labour and Tourism, the Ostalb district, the Heidenheim disctrict and the cities of Aalen, Ellwangen, Giengen, Heidenheim and Schwäbisch Gmünd. 

Here you can find our services for international professionals and companies.
