Creating opportunities - shaping the future

A shared goal

Employees of FH Vorarlberg live and work in the heart of Europe and enjoy an excellent quality of life in the economically, socially and naturally attractive region around Lake Constance. This is where the four countries Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein meet and where global players from industry as well as successful SMEs feel right at home. A strong network of academic institutions and universities makes the Lake Constance region a hub of knowledge. Cultural and tourist highlights enrich social life here – from opera by the lake to skiing in the mountains.

As employees in teaching, research and administration, we pursue a shared goal: shaping the future of the coming generations. We share knowledge, train professionals, research with partners throughout Europe and seek practical solutions for society and the economy.

Flexibility and individuality are core values here. Tailored working models ensure the compatibility of work and family life. Positive collaboration and the personal development of staff are key.  
Join us if you wish to achieve your potential in an exciting and meaningful job, work autonomously in a friendly and appreciative environment, and create and seize opportunities. Apply now!
