Hiring in the Netherlands

We all know the Netherlands for its windmills, tulips and canals, but behind the stereotypes lies one of Europe’s great success stories. Home to one of the world’s most advanced economies since the 1600s, the Netherlands has overcome geographic and historic challenges to retain its place on the world stage.

The Netherlands is part of the EU, Schengen and Benelux economic areas and is highly integrated with both neighbouring countries and nations around the world.

The Netherlands is highly industrialised and highly developed, with world-leading infrastructure and a famous propensity for cycling over fossil fuel transport where possible.

The Netherlands ranks as one of the top places in the world to both work and hire, with extensively developed employment practices and laws and a highly-skilled, highly developed workforce. Many Dutch people speak several languages, with English, German, French and of course Dutch the most common.
