Specialized employees in Austria

Austria offers young people a dual education system, in which apprenticeship is accompanied by vocational training. In this way, they can get an education and practical experience at the same time. This becomes a major competitive advantage in the recruiting process, when entering the workforce or later in people’s careers, both in terms of their choice of profession and their salaries. Working in close cooperation with companies, schools ensure that the educational system meets the requirements of the business community and thus successful staffing.

In addition to vocational schools, higher technical schools provide courses and programs in all fields. Upon graduation, a student can either commence his professional career, or continue his education by attending one of the 21 universities of applied sciences, 22 public universities or 13 private universities in Austria.

International scientific staffing

Without doubt, Austria is one of the most pleasant places in the world to live. However, this is not the only reason underlying the ability of research institutions and R&D headquarters to attract international scientific staff.

Programs such as Talente promote the recruiting of international employees by paying for their travel, moving and relocation expenses, bringing scientists and companies together and assisting the business community with tax issues or compulsory registration with the responsible authorities. Research Austria makes scholarships available to scientists from abroad, and the Austrian Science Fund supports qualified foreign professionals working at the interface between basic and applied research. For its part, the Austrian Research Promotion Agency provides assistance on legal issues, whereas its “Young Experts” program promotes the first years at work of doctoral candidates.
