Right on time for the PMRExpo 2021 trade fair taking place in Cologne from 23 to 25 November, the Netzerk Sichere Kommunikation, Bundesverband Professioneller Mobilfunk (PMeV)’s portal for finding specialists, has gone online.

Companies dealing with mission-, safety- and business-critical communications, as well as those active on the mobile radio sector can offer their job and training opportunities online at

Just like other industries, the professional mobile radio (PMR) application sectors dealing with mission-, safety- and business-critical communications also experience a shortage of skilled experts. However, these PMR sectors are more important than ever as it is necessary to prevent the number of crisis and disaster situations increasing or to react quickly and professionally when it comes to such events.

"The shortage of skilled experts has by no way stopped at our sector,” said Peter Stroetmann, project manager of the professional joint initiative. “The new portal for specialist finding will also be an extremely important part of our education and training initiative. We need both practitioners and academics.”

With its professional joint initiative, the PMeV pools the know-how and expertise of its member companies in order to gain a sufficient number of appropriately qualified experts for participation in the PMR segment of the future. Currently, the initiative for recruiting skilled experts for our sector is represented by managing directors, human resources and marketing managers of the PMeV member companies as well as non-police control center operators.

At a global level, the increasing conflicts, terrorist attacks, cyberattacks and natural disasters require a highly reliable and safety-critical communication infrastructure especially for security agencies and critical infrastructure operators.

"A lack of qualified specialists and young potentials in our sector will also affect public-safety and the supply of and care for our society both at national and international level,” said Bernhard Klinger, chairman of the PMeV board of management. "As a result of the digitization of the German economy, it is especially important to set up local dedicated broadband networks, so-called campus networks, based on 4G/LTE and 5G technologies. These permit innovative developments in many sectors. In addition, German security agencies and operators of critical infrastructures will also require safety-critical and reliable broadband networks in the future. Thus, demanding and exciting challenges will lie ahead of the staff members in our sector."
