Expatica presents the Job Fair for Internationals

Expatica introduced the Job Fair for Internationals, the event for pursuing an international career in the Netherlands, in 2013. Our 7th Job Fair for Internationals will take place on Sunday, 2 October 2016 at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. This event serves the international community living, working and studying in the Netherlands and has become an annual institution, catering to newly arrived expats, long-standing residents, individuals and families alike.

This year the Job Fair for Internationals is integrated with the ‘i am not a tourist’ Expat Fair. Two events under one roof, providing expats with the chance to grasp life in the Netherlands ‘by the horns’! Your Job Fair ticket gives you access to both fairs!

Experts about the Job Fair

Branch organisation Nederland ICT

“Almost half of ICT companies with up to 100 employees name a shortage of suitably skilled labour as the main impediment to growth. … For companies with 100 to 750 employees, the mismatch on the labour market is one of three factors limiting growth.”
November 2014

Dutch Ministry of Health
“As in previous editions, the Dutch Health Care Performance Report 2014 shows too little time and attention is paid to clients in the geriatric care sector. In 2013, over half of nursing home staff indicated there is not enough personnel to ensure a good quality of care.”
September 2014

Twente Branding
“The Netherlands is a prosperous country. Despite the economic headwind, our levels of competitive strength, innovation and science put us in the top 5 on international rankings. Finding well-educated technicians on college and university levels will prove increasingly difficult in the near future. This development will harm companies’ growth and innovative strength. … We expect a shortage of technical professionals of 30,000 by 2020.”
“The shortage of skilled workforce in healthcare is confirmed by the Dutch government on their website: ‘1.3 million people work in the healthcare and social welfare sector in the Netherlands. Over the next 15 to 20 years, over 40,000 extra staff will be needed – if we want to continue to provide care in the same way – to cope with the growing number of elderly people requiring care.’”

Rob van Gijzel, mayor of Eindhoven
“If the current demand – supply gap is not met soon, about 3000-5000 skilled job vacancies per year will go unfulfilled in the Eindhoven region alone.”
