‘Filling vacancies in-house can take a lot of time and, for that reason, doesn’t make sense when it comes to long-term absences due to sickness. That's where jobvalley steps in with the ideal solution. The main advantage is that other service providers only offer access to standard portfolios, whereas jobvalley provides graduates.’
– Marion Seeger, Dept. Head, Fredersdorf-Vogelsdorf municipality
Public sector work is popular, including among academics. It's easy to see why as it offers job security, good pay and career opportunities. Why not spend some time working for a municipality and seeing how things work for a while after graduation? This constellation opens a number of doors, including when it comes to covering positions. That's how Fredersdorf-Vogelsdorf municipality managed to find a HR clerk through jobvalley Young Professionals at a moment’s notice.
25 kilometres away from central Berlin and connected to the capital via the A10, the S5 and various bus routes.
Covered under the ‘future strategy for the area surrounding East Berlin’, the municipality is part of a fast-growing metropolitan region.
