Employment in The South
Whether reinventing your career or transferring from abroad, opportunities in the South are abundant. The Go Beyond team is here to assist you in maximizing your employment potential.
Be’er Sheva, capital of the south, is the employment hub of the region, though there are jobs throughout the south. As a result of the government’s initiative to further develop the Negev as well as the completion of Route 6 and the railway, and the construction of new industrial parks, an increasing number of large Israeli and international companies are establishing a presence in the south, resulting in increased employment opportunities for Olim.
For those who prefer to work in the center of Israel, while enjoying the benefits of life in the south, the upgrading of the railway system and the building of the Route 6 highway allow for an easy and reasonable commute.
