Hiring trends in The Netherlands

We will move towards an even more candidate driven market across all levels in 2018. In accounting and finance, demand will remain highest for professionals at junior and mid level but we also expect to see increased mobility among senior professionals. In banking and financial services, data and technology driven finance professionals that can improve the link between finance and IT are in high demand, as well as compliance specialists.

Salaries will show moderate growth in 2018, with the exception of finance specialists and graduates, who will receive stronger pay rises. 

Offering competitive salaries and training will be critical to securing top talent. Flexible working hours and a good work life balance will continue to be important to many candidates and swift hiring processes will be key to securing the most desirable professionals.
