Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! There are many international companies in The Netherlands. I’ve worked during my recruiting years with people from all over the world. More so than with Dutch people! You can expect the main language in these companies to be English. 

If you need a Visa to work in The Netherlands depends on your personal situation: 
– If you’re from the European Union or European Economic Area or from Switzerland you don’t need a work permit to work in The Netherlands 
– If you’re not from the European Union you need to get a Visa Sponsorship from your employer. In most cases this is the Highly Skilled Migrant Visa.  Luckily there’s many employers in The Netherlands that offer this Visa sponsorship.

It’s common for international companies in The Netherlands to provide relocation packages. A relocation package will help you settle down in a new country and will cover the expenses you make. Think about your costs for the flight, luggage and sometimes you get temporary accommodation as well. 

It completely depends on the company if they offer a relocation package and of which this consists of. You can check this with the recruiter of the company.
