PREPARE BEFORE YOU LEAVE

USEFUL INFORMATION TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR THE TRIP

Transport

  • Assistance in organising the journey from Poland to the Netherlands (we will book seats in a transport company, in some cases we will transport the candidates to the employer ourselves, we will give you the address of the destination – as well as the address of accommodation)
  • You can also go in your own car

 

What is worth taking with you?

  • Take enough money and food for a few weeks with you, because you will get your first pay after a week or a month (depending on the employer).
  • If this is your first trip and you do not have a SOFI/BSN number yet, your employer should make every effort to obtain one for you.
  • If it is necessary and the above is not possible for the employer (if this is agreed with the employer), we will help you with the application for a BSN number.

 

Take the following with you as well:

  • a valid identity document (valid for at least 3 months from the date of departure)
  • the SOFI/BSN number assignment document (if you have one)
  • the number of your bank account (preferably in foreign currency as banks charge for currency conversion)
  • a card to your bank account
  • a driving licence (if you have one)
  • kitchen utensils – cutlery, a cup, a plate, etc.
  • working clothes such as working shoes (with a steel toe-box, sometimes required), rain boots (unfortunately, it rains a lot in the Netherlands), rainwear (very useful when working outdoors)
  • bedding, a quilt/blanket or a sleeping bag (very practical in the times of COVID)

 

First day in the Netherlands

  • Upon arrival at the address we will have given you, you should report to or call the contact person indicated on the form or in the text message
  • That person should tell you when you start work and at what time.
  • You will also find out whether you will be travelling to work by a bicycle (it is possible if the distance is up to 10 km) or by other means of transport – the mode of transportation you will use to get from your home to your place of work.
  • You can only make a first impression once. Be punctual and diligent in your work. Show that you are a self-motivated person.
  • The first day on the job is very important.
  • In the Netherlands, there are various collective agreements known as CAO (Collective Labour Agreement), which regulate the conditions of employment and pay (hourly wages, overtime, sick pay and other taxes).
  • You should also ask your employer about the health insurance called Zorgverzekening (contributions are usually paid by the employee)
