Find your job
Living and working here is both easy and demanding. Easy, because Brest has more employment opportunities available than elsewhere: the number of jobs offered is greater than the number of available applicants (in the order of 1,100 jobs per 1,000 applicants), and Brest has the privilege of having one of the lowest unemployment rates of all French metropolises (6.1% when the national average reaches 7.4%).
Demanding as well, because the population of Brest works hard and invests fully in the success of the companies and projects they work on. Here commitment and determination are a state of mind, as well as an ingrained habit.
