Support in recruiting specialists

Nowhere else in Germany has there been such a increase in jobs as in Berlin. More than 90 percent of this has been in the service industry. The digital economy industries adds one in five new jobs in Berlin and offers higher-than-average pay.

The majority of the employees move to the capital for this purpose, even though they earn relatively little on average nationwide. The reason for this is the dominance of the service industry. As a rule, less is earned here than in industry.

More than 88,000 people are already employed in the Berlin digital economy. And it is precisely this sector that attracts talent from all over the world to Berlin.
