Work in Netherlands non-EU

We have multiple Automotive clients in Netherlands who have steady demand for experienced and professional engineers. 

We will shortest successful candidates and present them to our automotive clients in Netherlands. Successful candidates that get a job offer from the client will then have to be employed by our outsourcing partner, so we can legally place you on the client's site for terms of the contract. 

Our local partner - a European professional employer organisation and compliance specialist that will become your official employer and will look after your salary payments and taxes. 

After you receive a job offer from the client, we will put you in contact with our partner so you can sign the employment agreement with them and apply for a Work Permit. 

You will be employed by our local partner but work for a client - the one that gave you a job offer. 

Benefits of working in Netherlands

Our contracts are normally long-term starting from 12+ months, which will be renewed every 6 months following the Purchase Order pattern. This is a good steppingstone and a gate way for Non-European Candidates to start a career in Europe and progress to a European citizenship. This of course is subject to your compliance with immigration rules, and we of course will help you and mentor you through the process if that is your goal. 

The good thing about the Netherlands is that you will be able to bring your wife and family, as you will get a good salary allowing you to provide good standards of living for your family. 


Work Permit Process for Non-EU 

Non-EU candidates may find it difficult to obtain a work visa for Europe. We work with a stablished local partner that has a solid reputation and relationships with local authorities across Europe, enabling visa sponsoring in Netherlands.

Our partner can apply for a visa for those coming from outside the EU. We have a fast-track process with the Dutch immigration service (IND) and can get a processed visa back in approx. 4 weeks. 

In order to meet Labour Law requirements and obtain a Work Permit you will be employed by our partner while working on the customer. After we make an agreement with you and you get a job offer from the customer, we will put you in contact with our partner to sign an employment contact with them and apply for a Work Permit.

Dutch Citizenship 

Expats who have been living in the Netherlands for five years are be eligible to apply for Dutch citizenship (Nederlandse nationaliteit). 

There are some exceptions to the five-year residence requirement for naturalisation. You do not need to have lived in the Netherlands for a continuous five-year period if one of the following applies: you are married to a Dutch citizen and you have been living together continuously for at least three years either in the Netherlands or abroad. This exception is also possible for unmarried partners.

When gaining Dutch citizenship internationals often have to give up their original citizenship(s) (afstand doen) because in many cases the Netherlands does not permit dual nationality. There are, however, a number of exceptions to this rule, where dual citizenship is possible.
