Tension in the Dutch labor market continued to increase in Q1 2022. Whereas in Q4 of 2021 there were 106 job vacancies for every 100 unemployed, a quarter later that figure rose to 133 per 100. The increased tightness is the result of a continued growth in the number of job vacancies (+59k) and a further decline in the number of unemployed (-32k). The number of jobs increased by 127k to a record high of over 11 million.

With unemployment falling and the number of vacancies at an all time high in the Netherlands, why not broaden your horizons and consider hiring skilled, motivated employees from other EU member states
