The Gesamthafenbetriebsverein im Lande Bremen (GHBV), as a personnel service provider for Bremen’s port industry, is specifically concerned with the placement of harbour workers in Bremerhaven and Bremen.
Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences trains excellent specialists and executives in the study fields of engineering sciences, business administration, logistics, information technology and tourism. This also benefits Bremerhaven as a location and the local economy. The Career Service Center (CSC), as part of the staff unit “Research and Transfer”, establishes the contact between companies and students.
Companies can use the job exchange of the AStA (General Students’ Committee) to recruit students and graduates of the various disciplines for assignments as interns or career entrants.
Declining levels of training and education are triggering labour shortages, information deficits and, in particular, a decrease in the availability of skilled staff. The change in the labour market therefore requires a new orientation on the part of enterprises – but also on the part of labour market administration, social partners and young people in the education and training market. For this reason, the main goal of the Netzwerk Schule, Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft [Network of Schools, Industry and Research] is the appropriate region-specific placement in training, study and work. The aim is to keep young people especially in the region, with a view to counteracting the demographic change.
The Jugendberufsagentur (JBA) [Youth Employment Agency] supports companies in filling their vacancies and in the search for suitable applicants for training or dual studies.
Job fairs are far more than just places where suitable employees can be found. It is becoming increasingly important for companies to position themselves as attractive employers on the labour market and to present themselves in a strong light. Employer branding is the keyword for attracting skilled workers and retaining them over the long term. Job fairs are a good opportunity for an exchange between companies and interested applicants.
Representing the Federal State of Bremen – and thus also Bremerhaven – top companies and motivated applicants have been coming together since 2006 at the Jobmesse Bremen to talk about careers and new prospects.
Another offering and a good platform for cross-industry recruiting is the Jobmesse Nord. It is aimed not only at the City of Bremen, but also at the entire surrounding area.
