Manuela KomorekHansestadt Wismar

At the returnees fair in December 2019, I found out about the options for returning to Wismar.

During my visit to the fair, I was given friendly and very competent advice at the stand of the “Welcome Service Center Nordwestmecklenburg”.

I am also very grateful for the very committed aftercare. The support in finding a job was very reliable and quick.

I can only praise and recommend the team’s service.
