What does Eastmen offer you?

Our recruiters are matchmakers. They try to match your skills to a job that fits you best. Our goal is to always make the perfect match, so that you and the company you work for, are both satisfied. That creates a win-win situation for everyone. 

The recruitment process starts with your personal recruiter. During your first conversation he or she will try to answer all of your questions. The recruiter will provide you with all the necessary information needed to prepare for your (temporary) relocation to the Netherlands.

After arriving in the Netherlands, our coordinators will take over from the recruiter. They will pick you up from the airport, take you to the accommodation and help you get a bank account and a BSN (security number in the Netherlands). 

In order to travel to your new job, you can rent a car from us. This is very convenient as you can also use it for private purposes. Great, right? 

Be careful with the speed limits in the Netherlands, especially with what is called ´traject controle´. This is an area where your speed is measured when you enter it and when you exit it. If your average speed is higher than the speed limit, you will get a fine, 100%. You can download an app called Flitsmeister that will show you the speed limits and the traject controle areas. Of course, the easiest way to avoid a fine is by driving according to the speed limit. If you do not know what that is, then this app will help you out.

Our coordinators will also help you out when you have a problem or a question. They speak English, Romanian and Hungarian, so you can even ask them a question in your own language. Just send them an email and they will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Working in the Netherlands is made easy for you as we arrange everything and offer you assistance the entire time. We offer jobs in Holland for English speakers at serious companies, with modern equipment, very high standards of hygiene and safety. Convinced already? If not, keep reading!

7 reasons to work in the Netherlands

1. Job opportunities

The Netherlands has one of the richest and most stable economies in Europe. With a surface of 41.543 km², the Netherlands is a small country but full of new job opportunities. Some sectors such as the chemical, technical or logistics continue to grow and are in need of professional workers. These are also some of the sectors for which we have a lot of job openings!

2. Labour standards in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is in the top 10 of the countries that have a good balance between private and professional life. About 75% of women and 26% of men only work 36 hours a week. This way they have more free time to spend with their family and friends. 

The Dutch also like to have a ´borrel´ with their colleagues, which means having a few drinks together on Friday after work. Nice, right?

3. High life expectancy

Life expectancy in the Netherlands is one of the highest in the world. This is due to a healthy environment with low pollution and good quality water, as well as their comfortable way of life – a good income and many employment and education possibilities. Because of this, the Dutch have more opportunities to save up and build a nice life for themselves. All this helps them maintain their 7th position in the top of the happiest countries in the world.

4. The Dutch people

Most people living in the Netherlands speak fluent English. You don’t have to worry if you don’t speak Dutch. The Dutch have a very rich cultural diversity and are accustomed to speaking English. They are also very friendly, welcoming and have a reputation for being a direct but tolerant people with foreigners.

5. The Dutch culture

You can visit various historic buildings, parks, as well as museums and galleries or you can just take a walk along the many water canals of the country. Did you know that 19% of the surface of the Netherlands is water?

The Netherlands and its history attract over 15 million tourists a year. They can enjoy some famous and tasty dishes, such as: patat (Dutch version of French fries, often served with mayonnaise, saté and onions), stroopwafel (a caramel syrup waffle, best when freshly made at the market), lots of different types of cheese, Dutch beer or bitterballen (a type of meatball, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside).

6. Cycling

Cycling is the preferred mode of transport in the Netherlands and also a way of living. Everyone bikes. Most Dutch people own more than one bicycle. For the many jobs in Amsterdam, about 800,000 bicycles are used daily to commute through the capital. Cycling to work is not only faster (if you work in a busy city and live nearby), but it also improves your health, helps you save money on transportation and helps the environment. There are bike paths all over the country where you can ride your bike safely. So there is no reason not to bike, at least sometimes.

7. The Netherlands is a safe country

Moving to a foreign country can be overwhelming and stressful. Knowing that you are in a safe and welcoming place helps you feel more secure and eliminate stress. The crime rate in the Netherlands is one of the lowest in the world!
