IT job agencies in NL
 
I am looking at moving from the UK to the Netherlands.
Can anyone recommend job agencies that cover IT roles?

Darwin Recruitment has been about the best one my husband found roles through. But don't limit yourself to one, trawl the internet sites to see what roles are available and where. Monsterboard.nl. Nationalevacaturebank.nl to name a few. Also the Dutch News site has a jobs board https://www.dutchnews.nl/jobsinholland/

-but-

the number one recruiting tool here continues to be LinkedIn. This is great, because you get to negotiate your own package direct with the company rather than have an agency involved. It's not at all like the UK where generally you take exactly what they offer you. We got about 9 things included in the contract, included 3 extra days leave for official appointments in the first year, an independent agency to handle the 30% rule (some companies like to pretend they are entitled to this money, but it's yours if you qualify), etc etc. Look into working conditions here because they differ. And if you're bringing kids, the schools shut on Wednesday afternoons so ensure you bargain for remote working on Wednesdays - everyone else here does!
