Working in Hamburg

If you’re thinking of moving to Germany to find work, Hamburg is one of the cities you’ll probably be considering. It’s home to a large community of expats from every corner of the globe, the majority of whom have moved there for work. Hamburg is Germany’s second largest city, and one of Europe’s most influential economic hubs.

Schepens makes the journey to northern Germany regularly, so we’re one of the leading providers of removals to Hamburg. Many of our clients move to this beautiful city to work in one of the world class research centres, as consultants to German businesses, or for one of the many International Schools. Others move with a partner and need to find appropriate work once they arrive.

We asked them what advice they would offer to expats looking to work in Hamburg. Here’s some of their responses:

1. Useful Websites

If you’re thinking of working in Hamburg there’s a number of websites that are helpful.

These offer a great overview of the kinds of work available. It’s probably a good idea to browse jobs before you move to the city, but wait to apply until you actually get there.

2. Make Your CV Relevant to German Companies

Rework your CV to let German employers know when you’re planning to move, your German contact details, and your proficiency with the language. It’s also a good idea to talk about why you’re moving to Germany, and how long you’re likely to stay. Any employer will want to know that you’re a serious applicant, before considering whether or not to offer you an interview.

3. Working in Hamburg for English Speakers

There are a number of companies in Hamburg that use English as a business language, or who target English speakers to manage their UK markets. The Immigrant Spirit website is a great place to start if you’re looking for English-speaking jobs; it provides lists of the companies looking for native English speakers, and allows you to browse available job opportunities.

4. Learn German Anyway

Whilst you may not need German to work in Hamburg, you should definitely learn the language to get the most out of living here. Despite the large expat community, Hamburg is definitely a German-speaking city. So, if you want to make friends, and move beyond the expat bubble, start learning the language before you move.
