We are also going to provide you with the inside track on utilizing your skills when you move to the Netherlands, and how you can find jobs in its major cities.
Finding Jobs in the Netherlands
Most expats moving to continental Europe tend to prefer Germany or France as their first destination, but the Netherlands has also come into the picture recently. It offers well-educated expats with the chance of a great career and a fun lifestyle that is better than their home country. The job market in the Netherlands is strong, and the economy continues to improve, making the country an attractive destination for skilled workers looking to live and work abroad.
Popular jobs in the main Dutch cities
Amsterdam has always been center of attention for anyone moving to the Netherlands, but there are other cities, which are great for job seekers. The Netherlands has a diverse job market and has jobs for financial service workers, teachers, marketing experts, media-savvy graduates, and creatives. It is important to remember that every city has its own unique job market.
In the case of Rotterdam, its job market is different, and the city has the highest unemployment rate in the country. However, most of the great jobs here are suitable for English speakers, since there is a demand for logistics staff and medicine.
