This year we will soon be introducing our “Event Team”. By utilizing a small team, we hope to bring you more exciting and diverse events for you to enjoy.

Jobs in the Netherlands

Did you know that TIC has a dedicated JOBS page to help expats find jobs in the Netherlands, and specifically in and around the Tilburg area?

We get many requests all year round for help with job searches. More and more job searches are done through social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook as well as through the professional networking site LinkedIn. In-person networking is also an important factor in getting a foot in the door.

Many job listings are posted on Twitter asking for candidates who speak a foreign language that isn’t Dutch. You can follow @tilintclub to get regular notices of vacancies. You can also do various searches to find job vacancies (for example, job vacancy Tilburg).  Many groups such as @nativespeakerss, @IamExpatJobs, @jobportaal and @BlueLynxJobs all post their vacancies several times a day.

Facebook is also worth investigating for jobs, specifically groups that are dedicated to posting position for jobs in the Netherlands, such as English speaking Jobs & Events in the Netherlands.

Resources for Expats Needed!

Did you know that we have a page on our website dedicated to national, regional and local expat resources?

This page covers the basics for Dutch life, but we’re looking to expand what we can share.

Do you know of some great resources that would help other expats with their lives here abroad, locally and/or nationally? Do you know of any expat-owned businesses that the international community can support? Know of any great websites that every expat should visit?

We love to hear from you so, send us your suggestions!
