The German company Medialjob is one of the leading companies in Germany developing projects concerned with the integration of healthcare professionals from Europe and Asia. Over 320 German senior centers and clinics benefit from the integration projects initiated by us, as we have over 5 years of experience in this field.
The integration program for registered general nurses JobForLife Germany 2020 is a comprehensive project, which offers support for both labor market integration in Germany and obtaining an employment contract in the short term.
JobForLife Germany 2020 is intended for nursing practitioners who wish to work in Germany either within projects with a limited duration not exceeding 24 months or for longer periods of employment, depending on their requirements.
Within the scope of the project, we organize information sessions about German healthcare provided in German hospitals and senior care centers. This will help you learn everything you need to know in order to quickly and easily integrate into Germany, both in the workplace and in German society.
Our specialists in Germany will provide you throughout the duration of the program with all the information you need to learn German for the purpose of gaining recognition of your professional qualifications in Germany, which requires a B2 proficiency level in German language. Professional recognition in Germany is a must and once you have obtained it, you will be fully entitled to exercise the nursing profession, which will lead to a considerable wage increase according to the German salary scale. Pay-related information can be found below.
