Additional details for Applicant

Workin Holland


Research has shown international students in theNetherlands are quite keen on staying after their studies. 

Career and job advice

However, to be able to stay and make a living, careeradvice and information on how to find a job are key. The difficulty of findingwork in a country that is not your own is that the subtleties of theapplication process are a great mystery.

Organisationalstructure

The organisational structure of businesses in theNetherlands is often very flat compared to businesses in your home country.

Managers and high-level staff deal withlower level workers on a daily basis, do not display symbols of rank and it iscommon to address them by their first names. This does not mean thathigh-ranking staff members are not respected (they are!). The idea behind theDutch flat hierarchy is that equality fosters productivity in teamdecision-making, rather than imposition of decisions by the superiors.

The Dutch are proud people and do notlike to be looked down upon, so a smart boss will bear this in mind and actrespectfully towards the staff at all levels.

No shaming and blaming

If something goes wrong, personalresponsibility is often avoided or rejected, with the blame placed on thesituation or a problem with the current set-up.

However, one should not be surprised tobe criticised by the boss publicly as it is a part of the Dutch directness.

Meetings andnegotiations

Dutch companies revolve around meetings. You will findthat there is always at least one meeting in your office every day, even if itonly involves a few people.

Because of their frequency, meetings aremostly informal, yet fixed to times and agendas. The Dutch enjoy offering theiropinion, and the attitude is that each individual may hold information that isvaluable to the company. As a result, meetings can involve staff members ofvarious levels of seniority.

Join the debate

Negotiations are usually lengthy aspeople seek consensus, with the most senior staff member seen as the strategistof plans, and the general staff as the implementers. Try to prepare yourself,as you will likely be expected to contribute to the discussion at some point.

Coffee breaks, a source of information

A lot of office information is passed onthrough word of mouth, and once you are a trusted figure among colleagues, youwill undoubtedly hear plenty of information at the office coffee machine.

Concept of time

In the Netherlands, time is money. You are expected tobe punctual as being late my 'damage' your image.

If you do find yourself running late,you should contact the relevant person and make them aware of this. Frequentlateness will affect your standing with the individual or companyconcerned, as a lack of time management is considered to be a trait of anunreliable worker.

Small talk

During business meeting, small talk isusually kept short. Avoid controversial topics and getting too personal tooquickly. A short exchange about the weather will do just fine!

Planning ahead

The Dutch tend to plan for the longterm, so schedules (both social and working) are often set weeks or even monthsin advance.

What will Iearn?

In the Netherlands salaries are in line with mostother Western European countries. Wages tend to be higher than in most SouthernEuropean nations, and on par with countries neighbouring the Netherlands. Theaverage annual salary is around ?27,000 with variations between sectors.

The average working week in theNetherlands is 40 hours. In many companies, lunch breaks are not consideredpart of official working hours (and therefore not paid for), hence if you work8 hours a day, you are expected to be present between 8.5 and 9 hours,depending on the duration of your break.

Flexible working

The maximum number of hours you areallowed to work is 12 hours per day, with a maximum of 60 hours per week incase of shift work. However, during a period of 16 weeks, you are not allowedto work more than 48 hours a week on average.

In the Netherlands there are many waysof working flexible hours, ranging from part-time work of 3 or 4 days aweek, to half days, or the possibility of working a shorter working weekthrough agreeing on 4 extended days of 9 hours (totalling 36 hours aweek). It goes without saying that this is subject to your employer's agreementand will of course result in a lower salary.
