We offer you an exciting and dynamic working environment with state-of-the-art technical equipment, a structured induction concept tailored to your previous experience, and the opportunity for further development of each individual.

You would like to work at one of the leading heart centers in Europe, pursue your personal development, deliver demanding but fulfilling work and be part of a strong, cohesive team? You bring with you commitment, empathy, creativity and idealism? Then this is the right place for you.
