Our Market (Brainport area)

Within the Dutch labour market we mainly focus on the Eindhoven Brainport area. The Brainport area is fast growing and well known for its innovative strength and multi-disciplinary way of working. The companies in this area excel at inventing, developing and integrating the world’s most complex high-tech machines, systems, parts and products. The fast growth results in an enormous demand for technical talent, meaning many vacancies within attractive high tech companies.

Eindhoven is in the top 5 of most liveable cities in Europe. This is the conclusion of a study by ECA International. Mobility consultancy ECA International ranked 480 global cities on factors including health services, housing, leisure facilities, safety, air quality and political tensions.

Thanks to clean air, good facilities and low crime rates, Copenhagen and Bern have come in first and second place. The Hague, Geneva and Eindhoven complete the top 5. Eindhoven is a newcomer in the list (read the conclusion and find the list here)
