Returning to Brandenburg

Returning home to Brandenburg

More and more local and regional initiatives are focusing on people who want to return to Brandenburg—of course, “New Brandenburgians” are also warmly welcome in the state between Prignitz, Uckermark, Fläming and Lusatia. The initiatives, most of them voluntary or local, present their offers online and introduce their home, and often include job vacancies. They want to strengthen the bond to one’s home and the State of Brandenburg.

In Brandenburg you will receive support in many aspects, for example, in building up your own business. In addition, people up to the age of 30 who have already completed training or study are supported in starting their careers via the state programme “Einstiegszeit”
