The IQ Project’s Unternehmensservice Fachkräfte is a service for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) looking for international skilled workers. The aim is to provide and secure long-term skilled labour for Hamburg SMEs by recruiting and integrating international skilled workers.

We advise SMEs in Hamburg on how to recruit skilled workers abroad.
Please contact us if you need support with any of the following topics:

  • recruiting international skilled workers from abroad

  • further qualification and German language courses for international skilled workers
  • intercultural training of your workers
  • long-term acquisition of international skilled workers for your business
  • help with the overall process

We provide an all-round service. That means we offer individual support throughout the entire process: from the recruitment of international skilled workers to their integration in the company, we are there as your direct contact persons.

You benefit from our location within the Hamburg Welcome Center (HWC). Here we are perfectly connected to all relevant official institutions, the job market and many counselling services.

All institutions responsible for job market integration are represented here in one place, e.g.

On-site dovetailing allows for short distances: problems can be prevented and solved more easily.
