International hub

A large number of international corporations have chosen Schaffhausen as a base for their business in recent years. They and their staff make the Canton of Schaffhausen something very special: a cosmopolitan place, yet one in which everything is close to hand and with exceptional quality of life.

Over 450 company relocations from 15 different countries in recent years have created a lively expat community in Schaffhausen which is a great help for newly arrived staff and their families as they settle in here. The flourishing international community in Schaffhausen means a wide range of benefits from English-language play-groups to running clubs. The International School of Schaffhausen (ISSH) is an important part of the mix and adds the option of following an internationally recognised curriculum to the excellent offer available via state-funded schools locally.
The Economic Promotion Team is here to put you in touch with the right people - contact us.

Help from the Economic Promotion Team
The Economic Promotion Team also helps newly arrived staff to settle in and quickly feel at home here in Schaffhausen. We regularly publish information and tips in English and German on living in Schaffhausen and what’s on, via our Facebook page “Schaffhausen – Tips for Expats” and our e-newsletter. We also host regular Welcome Events and have created a comprehensive Welcome Guide to help new staff to find their feet here.
