Event description

Description

Your company is one of the rising stars in the Dutch tech scene and well known by everyone working in the industry in the Netherlands. Still, we all know how hard it is to find fresh talent to join your dev team.

The local pool is sparsely populated and being majorly over-fished by the Bookings and Adyens of this world. Resulting in a massive shortage in tech talent.

That’s why companies are forced to expand their search abroad and try to attract talent from all over the world. And who wouldn’t want to move here; we have good working conditions, great work-life balance and we all speak English very good… :-)

Cheese and Oranje

From the talent’s perspective, the picture looks a bit different. They get bombarded by recruiters on LinkedIn with messages that claim they have the best position for them at the hottest companies in Europe’s most awesome cities. All they have to do is fill out a few forms, do some interviews and tests and then relocate 1000 kilometers away. To a country, they only know from the Oranje football team, cheese and windmills and to work in a company they hardly know anything about. Feels like a great offer, right?

No wonder that once they’re here, having experienced drizzly autumn stowed away in an apartment in suburbia, working with colleagues they don’t connect with, they decide to leave.

Time to approach this from the candidate’s perspective and put them in the driver's seat.

Learn how to unburden both candidates and yourself when hiring, relocating and onboarding foreign tech talent in a masterclass hosted by Talent.io, the Relocation Company and Appical.
