The process

When you have decided that you want to come and work for Werk & IK, the recruitment process will start. The standard process to work in the Netherlands can take up to three (3) months, sometimes longer, this is due to the security arrangements for working in controlled areas at the airport. Werk & IK do have jobs that require a lower level of security checking such as warehousing and Just Eat deliveries allowing you to join us in the Netherlands sooner. The following explains the steps required to join us in Holland.
