Are you going to work in the Netherlands or are you planning to? Before starting a job, there are some things you need to be aware of. For starters, it is important to check whether you need a visa and a work or residence permit. Applying for these would be a lot easier if you already have an employer that wants to hire you. If you do not have one yet, you need to know where and how to find a job in the Netherlands. And if you already decided you want to start your own business here, you need to be informed about the Dutch rules regarding this.
Even when you finally have found a job, you will have to deal with some other things. Think of the new work culture you will have to get used to, or the Dutch social security system. And what about your partner? Maintaining a dual career can be a hassle – especially in a new country.
As you may have noticed, there are a lot of things to keep in mind. But no need to worry: this section will give you all the information you need about working in the Netherlands.
