What does the Ore Mountain district offer employees?
The district’s biggest online job board for skilled workers, „Fachkräfteportal Erzgebirge“, lists only regional job offers. The site was launched by WFE GmbH in 2008 and now lists almost 1,100 vacancies at more than 350 companies, plus jobs for schoolchildren, students and budding trainees. Every month, some 33,000 users access the jobs board.
There is intense dialogue between employers and potential employees at the „Ore Mountains Commuter Action Day“.This regional job fair with more than 70 exhibitors in all has taken place in Annaberg-Buchholz and Aue since 2012. Every year, at Christmas, the event brings together potential returnees, commuters and companies in the region. This is a cooperative venture by WFE GmbH, the Ore Mountains regional management office, the Annaberg-Buchholz employment agency, Chemnitz Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Ore Mountains branch and the IGA Aue e.V. industry and trade association.
