AMMAN — The Goethe-Institut Jordan will host a two-day conference on May 11-12 in Amman on opportunities for Jordanian skilled workers in the German labour market.

The event, with the participation of main stakeholders in both countries, will discuss the necessary requirements for jobs in Germany, according to a statement from the institute.

The German labour market is facing a shortage of skilled workers in some sectors and many well-educated Jordanians are seeking job opportunities abroad, the statement said. 

The event will offer a chance for representatives of Jordanian associations, universities and vocational training centres as well as the Ministry of Labour to meet with representatives of the German Federal Employment Agency, the German embassy in Amman, the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) as well as German companies and sector associations, the statement said. 

Criteria for successful job application in Germany are a relevant education, proficiency of the German language and previous working experience, the statement said.

The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany. It promotes knowledge of the German language and fosters international cultural cooperation.
