The 1st edition of the Job Fair Central Netherlands, the kick-off event of the Expat Centre Central Netherlands initiative, will take place on the 1st of June, 2023 at Wittenborg's Spoorstraat campus in Apeldoorn. Companies/organisations working with or seeking English-speaking and international talent, either studying or graduated in the region, can connect with one another during this afternoon and early evening event.
This job fair is an initiative that started with Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences as a result of the Gelderland’s “Talent Gap” initiative. Soon after the initiative was launched, it was endorsed by regional network organisations, educational institutes, and public bodies alike.
