There was strong emigration from Görlitz after German reunification, especially among the economically active population. This is similar to most other regions in eastern Germany. That process is over now, and there are many people moving to Görlitz, so the working population is growing.
Görlitz Department of Economic Development organises various activities to help companies find new employees:
We organise stands at recruiting events such as "bonding" in Dresden or the European Job Day in Wroclaw. This service is used, for example, by the growing companies in Görlitz, especially in the IT sector (SQS, DSER, Saxonia Systems, Cideon Software or Teleperformance).
There are two reasons for running these stands. First, direct support for our companies to find their future employees. Second, to informa people about the good job opportunities in the region. We would like to offer you jobs in Görlitz, too. Please contact us.Read more
