Cologne is a lively city, as anyone who’s celebrated Carnival there will agree. There’s more to the city than their Mardi Gras shindig (although its reputation as a party town does sweeten the deal). 15% of the Cologne city area is forest, providing many opportunities to leave work behind and get away from it all at weekends.
For sports enthusiasts, looking for a job in Cologne is a great idea and not only because of the renowned Sport University Cologne and their diverse array of sporting events.

The fourth largest city in Germany, Cologne is always high on the list of German job seekers. The cathedral city on the Rhine is best known for its starring role in the German media industry. Cologne is home to media companies such as WDR, media group RTL Germany GmbH and the film production company GRUNDY Light Entertainment. One third of German film and television productions are produced in Cologne, so there are lots of job opportunities for professionals in the fields of film and video technology, and consumer electronics. This of course creates a need for media and communication companies, like agencies Ergo Corporate Communications and Palmer Hargreaves, and a need for talented marketing, media technology and web development professionals. Cologne also plays host to several big German companies like REWE Group, and Deutsche Bahn. It’s also made its name as a major insurance centre, with job opportunities in AXA, DEKV and Gotha.
