If your CV is the perfect match with a vacancy, then one of our star recruiters will call you in for an intake appointment. Don’t worry if we don’t have the perfect match right away. Your time will come and we will call you the moment it does.

Is it hard to find a job in the Netherlands?

If you are an English speaker and you are coming from a country in the EU, it’s much easier to find a job in the Netherlands. But, even if you are a Dutch national, finding and landing a job that you like can be difficult. 

I have recently accepted a job offer but had my start date delayed because of the coronavirus. Is this normal?

With the uncertainty that COVID-19 has brought upon all of us, employers might choose to postpone employment. It is not the same as withdrawing the job offer. Be sure to stay in touch with the company and remain flexible. 

What’s the best city to live and work in the Netherlands?

The cities in the Netherlands are different and yet, each has at least one thing that will make you consider it as your next home base. Amsterdam, of course, is a clear favourite for its museums, nightlife, and all the events, but the Hague and the rest of the Randstad area are just as exciting and not too far away from each other either. So, keep your options open if you are moving to the Netherlands from abroad.

I’m not currently living in the Netherlands. Can I still apply?

Our experience shows that employers prefer applicants who live and have the legal right to work in the Netherlands. If you are planning to relocate, please contact us after you do so. In the meantime, you can still register your CV and read our section on work visa policies for knowledge migrants the Netherlands.
