Among The Best Companies in Eindhoven (2022)
Updated: Aug 28, 2022
While the great majority of people in the Netherlands speak English fluently, not all companies systematically offer job vacancies suited for English speakers. This especially applies if you're seeking jobs outside of the country's major cities, namely Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and The Hague among others.
Finding English-speaking companies in Eindhoven can turn into a headache for certain job seekers, as Dutch remains a prerequisite for the larger part of vacancies found on LinkedIn, Monster and Indeed.
To make finding a job in Eindhoven easier for internationals, we thus deemed it helpful to create a selection of companies regularly posting job openings to which English speakers are eligible.
If you're looking for a job in Eindhoven, this article is for you! If you're looking for a job elsewhere, check out our articles presenting the best companies to work for in Groningen or listing 8 Amsterdam-based start-ups currently hiring English speakers.
