The Greater Rotterdam-The Hague Area Job Board was launched in May 2022. The Job Board is a tool that helps international talent find job openings in the many innovative sectors within the region.
Employers can use this joint platform to advertise their English language vacancies. All kinds of organisations are represented on the Job Board, from start-ups and scale-ups to SMEs, multinational corporations and knowledge institutions. International job seekers can apply for jobs directly on the websites of the advertising companies.
The launch of the regional Job Board is an important milestone in the Greater Rotterdam-The Hague Area International Talent Program. Coordinated by InnovationQuarter, the program supports employers in recruiting and retaining international tech talent in the Greater Rotterdam-The Hague area. One of the goals of the program is to promote the area as an attractive region for international talent while bringing together and strengthening other similar existing initiatives.
“This portal meets the needs of employers in the region and showcases what the Greater Rotterdam-The Hague area has to offer international talent.” – Rinke Zonneveld, InnovationQuarter.

Progress of the International Talent Program
In the coming months, the International Talent Program will also launch a Talent Portal. This online portal will provide both companies and international job seekers with lots of relevant information, including how to attract international talent and what living and working in the Netherlands – particularly the Greater Rotterdam-The Hague area – is really like.
In addition to the Job Board and the upcoming Talent Portal, other tools and resources are in the pipeline. Although the program is currently scheduled to run until the end of 2023, the aim is to make it permanent.
InnovationQuarter is the coordinator of the International Talent Program. Other financers include the municipalities of The Hague and Rotterdam, the Rotterdam-The Hague Metropolitan Area, Smart Delta Drechtsteden, MKB Rotterdam-Rijnmond and VNO-NCW Rotterdam & Regio Rijnmond.
The program is being implemented in close collaboration with the International Centres of Rotterdam, The Hague and Leiden and educational institutions throughout the Greater Rotterdam-The Hague area. The Talent Coalition Netherlands is involved at the national level.
The International Talent Program is part of the broader Human Capital Agreement, signed in June 2019 by 66 parties and sectors in the Greater Rotterdam-The Hague area. The Province of Zuid-Holland and Economic Board Zuid-Holland initiated the Human Capital Agreement which aims to optimally utilise workforce talent.
