Working in the Harz
A well-developed road network, the direct connection to the A36, access to the nationwide rail network and reliable public transport are why many companies have chosen to relocate to the Harz district. The economic, scientific and innovative potential of the numerous small and medium-sized companies, research institutions and craft businesses is surprisingly diverse. High-performing companies with a historically grown mix of industries and qualified workforce have ensured the economic strength and stability of the region.
We also boast the Harz University of Applied Sciences, the well-known Julius Kühn Institute and a branch of the Robert Koch Institute as local higher education and research institutions to the area. Especially in the healthcare sector, transport and logistics as well as the metal and electrical industry companies offer numerous positions and traineeships. Additionally, the hotel, restaurant and catering industry are eager to win new talent due to their ever expanding business.
