Welcome to rich opportunities
Almost unnoticed, Saarland has turned into a globally competitive industrial and service location with a broad-based SME sector. Apart from the high pace of innovation, the strong labour market shows how successful the structural change in the Saarland has been. More and more young professionals and skilled workers, students and graduates, as well as executives from industry and academia are attracted here. Once here, they like to stay - because despite all the hustle and bustle life is much more relaxed.

Earn what you deserve
Saarland workers’ salaries are around 4% (gross) above the national average, for professionals almost 7% above (source: BA remuneration statistics, end 2012). Young people, in particular, with limited work experience have the opportunity to obtain an above-average salary relatively quickly. And at the same time enjoy a relatively low cost of living. Moreover, jobs in the Saarland are generally less likely to be lost due to insolvency.
Good basis for start-ups
The 'Saarland Offensive for Start-ups' (SOG) supports budding and young entrepreneurs with a broad range of services. These comprise initial consultation about the entrepreneur's qualifications right through to networking with all start-up and business-related sites. The University of Saarland goes a step further: entrepreneurs are provided with a start-up mentor.
