Why move to Germany?
Modern workplace & stable employment
German health facilities are usually very well-equipped, both technically and materially. In addition to a modern workplace, the employment is stable for skilled workers in Germany. The German healthcare market is growing steadily, as the number of people in need of care continues to rise. Moreover, the workplace is not dependent on seasonal fluctuations.
Salary & Social Benefits
The average salary of a nurse is €2,800/month (gross) and increases with professional experience. Employers offer bonuses and benefits in addition to the salary. Germany also offers a wide range of social benefits such as health insurance, pension funds and unemployment insurance.
Career Opportunities
German employers offer numerous opportunities for further training, specialisation and career development to healthcare staffers. Moreover, advanced training courses (certified by the state) are funded by the employer in Germany. Those who decide to work in the German healthcare sector are offered stable employment opportunities.
Family Friendliness & Naturalization
Subsequent family reunification is possible as well. Furthermore, Germany supports families with a child allowance and well established public education. In addition, the spouse can receive a work permit in Germany. Those who live legally and on permanent bases in Germany for eight years have the opportunity to obtain German citizenship - this is the case in only a few countries.
