Job Fair Central Netherlands

The 2nd edition of the Job Fair Central Netherlands will take place on Thursday, 6 June, 2024 at Wittenborg's Spoorstraat location 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.

- Date: Thursday, 6th June 2024

Who are the exhibitors & visitors?

The fair is open to all current students and alumni of higher education institutes, expats living in the Netherlands, and local Dutch residents interested in English-speaking working environments. The job fair provides a unique opportunity for job seekers to connect with companies and organisations looking for English-speaking and international talent in the region. By introducing international talent to (regional) employers, we hope to keep highly qualified graduates in the region and support economic development, to making local companies more attractive and diverse.
