Working in Heidelberg
Coveted and creative
Unsurprisingly for a city that is home to Germany’s oldest university, jobs in Heidelberg have a strong connection to sciences. Along with the university hospital, the university is the city’s biggest employer. But Heidelberg’s economic dynamism is also derived from a strong SME sector and the presence of major corporations such as Heidelberg Cement, Heidelberger Druck, SAS, MLP, as well as various research-based companies. The city offers strong support to the SME sector, with targeted promotional programs and individual support from an SME special adviser. A cultural and creative officer looks after the creative and artistic side.
