Job placement is offered free of charge by the Studierendenwerk Freiburg. It has the task of arranging short-term or long-term employment for students of the Freiburg University Region. The Studierendenwerk is merely an intermediary. The contractual partners are the students and the respective employers. The amount of the remuneration is the sole responsibility of the contracting parties. The Studierendenwerk does not specify any remuneration rates and is also not entitled to demand certain remuneration rates from the students for accepted assignments. However, we would like to point out that the statutory minimum wage must be observed. Job offers and requests can be viewed in the service portal or you can post them yourself.
You will find the link to the service portal on the right of this page.
Students of the University of Freiburg and the University of Education Freiburg need a valid enrolment or study certificate in order to be able to activate the job and accommodation service, to take advantage of legal advice or to become a member of the International Club. The presentation of the Uni-Card and PH-Card is no longer sufficient due to the missing semester information!
You can find our job intermediation in our Service Portal. In order to use this (as well as other services) you must complete a one-time registration.
After the registration, you can publish your job offer in our Service Portal. Thereafter you may continue to edit, update, or close the offer once the position has been filled. You also have the option to determine the period of employment. Your job offer ends automatically in 14 days, but you can also extend it online yourself; you will receive an e-mail from us before the offer expires. In this way, we keep our database updated and you will not receive any unnecessary applications.
Please note: All students are legally required to have social insurance. The employer is responsible to verify if the student has obtained social insurance or if the student has fulfilled the registration and contribution obligations.The students are therefore obligated to provide all necessary information for the verification of their insurance coverage.
The job intermediation provided by the Studierendenwerk Freiburg can be utilized by all students who are enrolled in an university that the Studierendenwerk Freiburg works with.
After you have registered and your account is activated, you may apply for job offers.
Advice for account activation:
In order to activate your account, every semester you must go to the information center located in the Studierendenwerk office (in Offenburg to the Studierendenwerk office in the Mensa) and provide the following:
If you are a citizen of a country that IS a member of the EU/EEA
If you are a citizen of a country that IS NOT a member of the EU/EEA
Foreign students from non-EU/EEA countries are granted to work at most 120 full-days or 240 half-days alongside their program of study and must provide proof for the employer if and how they have used that time. Gainful employment is only allowed with a valid work permit. This is noted in the supplementary sheet to the residence permit.
You can find more information about the application for the residence permit here:
Advice for intermediation:
After your account has been activated you can request a maximum of three job offers. We then expect a response regarding whether the position was filled or not. Only then can you request more job offers.
Under the requested job offer, you will find the buttons for feedback. This way, we keep our darabase up to date and avoid that you or others apply for jobs that have already been given away.
Advice for social insurance:
Please note: All students are legally required to have social insurance. The employer is responsible to verify if the student has obtained social insurance or if the student has fulfilled the registration and contribution obligations. The students are therefore obligated to provide all necessary information for the verification of their insurance coverage.
