Recruitment & Jobboards

You are in a unique position! With about 4 million inhabitants within a one hour travel distance and a large community of international talent, Maastricht Region is a region like no other. We offer an enormous diversity of cultures, knowledge and skills. We could call it a privilege that you, as an employer, can set up your recruitment here. How to start?

DUTCH speaking talent

Even though we are an international region, sometimes the position can only be filled by someone who is native Dutch. In that case, people also speak Dutch in Flanders (Belgium border region). You have multiple regional and cross-border options to publish your vacancies.


Partners to assist you


GERMAN speaking talent

Because we are so close to the German border, daily, approximately 8.000 talents cross this border just to go to work in the Netherlands or in Germany. Over 4000 German inhabitants work for Dutch employers in our region. In that case, if your position can only be filled by someone who is native German, you have some cross-border options to publish your vacancies. 


Partners to assist you



Many employers within our network hire international talent. With a good command of English, mostly higher educated, internationals can start their career in the Maastricht Region.

EURopean Employment Service (EURES)

Our partner EURES supports employers in hiring talent from other countries of the European Economic Area (EEA). EURES can provide employers with the opportunity to find motivated and skilled workers, especially in the case of national work force shortages in specific economic sectors.

Finding talent from another European country can be a difficult task if you have not done it before. How do you get started? What should you consider? Who can offer you help and support? 

Contact EURES and upload your vacancy or attend one of the many workshops or events organised by EURES.
