Rotterdam - Employment
There are several large Dutch conglomerates with headquarters in Rotterdam, among them, Dutch consumer giant Unilever and Shell. Mittal Steel Company, the world largest steel company is also headquartered in Rotterdam.
In general, if you do not speak Dutch, it may be difficult for you to find suitable employment. Most employees in Rotterdam (and for The Netherlands) are multi-lingual, and most of them are highly educated and qualified. In addition, the Highly Skilled Migrant Scheme brings in many professionals and executives to this country, so if you are an accompanying partner who is posted to Rotterdam to work, it may be challenging for you to find work. If you are in Rotterdam on a family visa, you need to check to see if your residency status permits you to work legally in The Netherlands.
If you are setting up a business in Rotterdam, you may wish to contact the Rotterdam Development Cooperation that can advise you on many matters. Click here for a listing of the account managers (categorized by region in Rotterdam) and their contact numbers. The Gemeente Rotterdam also offers good advice on how to recruit staff, as well as other important information about import and export rules.
