Want to live and work abroad, but don’t know which is the right country for you? Here are VHR’s Top 7 Reasons to Work in the Netherlands.

7. Job Opportunities
As one of the most stable economies in the EU, the Dutch economy is also one of the richest. The Netherlands may be small, but it’s full of fresh job opportunities. Expats living and working in the Netherlands can grow their careers by joining one of many international companies with a Dutch office. For those starting their own business, the Dutch government also helps small businesses to grow by simplifying bureaucracy, offering tax breaks and continuously updating government policies. A thriving economy offering a wealth of job and career opportunities is one of the best reasons to work in the Netherlands.
6. Working Standards
The Netherlands is on the list of the ten best countries to live in for a good work/life balance. The Dutch government is constantly finding new ways to attract highly skilled migrants and entrepreneurs via schemes such as the 30% tax ruling and the startup visa residence permit. The Netherlands transformed itself over the centuries from a tidal lowland of farmers, sailors and merchants into a financial centre, design hotspot and start-up capital.
