Hiring in Belgium

Belgian waffles, fries with mayonnaise and dark, strong beer are just a few of Belgium’s exports you’ll be used to. Belgium is also known as ‘Europe’s de facto capital’ thanks to the European Parliament, European Commission and NATO’s headquarters all located in the capital, Brussels.

Belgium enjoys a strongly globalised economy and is highly integrated with the rest of the European Union. Belgium has also been in economic union with neighbour Luxembourg since 1922, sharing customs and currency since then. 

It was also the first continental European nation to become industrialised. Belgium is 18th in the world in terms of GDP per capita.

Organisations who wish to invest or hire in Belgium can take advantage of an open employment market that welcomes foreign investment. Belgium enjoys extensive developed labour regulation and workers enjoy some of the best employee rights in the world. Many Belgians speak more than one language, with Dutch and French the most widely spoken, and around 38% of Belgians speak fluent English.
