The majority of workers leave for the Netherlands to make money therefore what matters the most is the paymentn for work there.
The money you can make depends on the sector you work in, the position and the number of hours. However it may not be less than a fixed minimum bruto wage which is 1335 EUR per month.

For an unskilled job workers recruited by Qbis make between 800 and 1200 EUR per month. This is the remuneration for 40 weekly hours of work after paying the rent, insurance and taxes but does not include the living expenses. Skilled workers depending on their profession get paid between 1000 and 2000 EUR per month after the rent, insurance and taxes but before the living expenses. Some workers apart from the salary have their transportation expenses covered. Please have in mind that bruto wages for Dutch workers are higher.

In addition to the salary for your job in the Netherlands you will also get paid a holiday benefit. The benefit rate is estimated hourly: every working hour contributes to the holiday payment. Depending on the employment agency the holiday benefit may be paid for every vacation you take or twice per year, usually in June and December.

How do you get paid in the Netherlands?

Our partners in the Netherlands pay for the hours worked. Depending on the employment agency you may get paid weekly, once in two weeks or once in four weeks. The salary after deducting the rent, insurance and taxes paid to the government is then transferred to the Dutch or Greek bank account you indicate.

To open a bank account in a Dutch bank you must submit your BSN Number, residence address and contract with the Dutch employing agency. It may take you from three to four weeks to open a Dutch bank account.

Why do young people get paid less?

According to the Dutch law young people until 23 years old may be paid less. The argument behind this is that expenses of young people in comparison to the older ones are lower. The younger the employee the less money he gets paid per hour.

Depending on the age and employment agency the monthly salary of younger employees recruited by Qbis ranges between 500 and 800 EUR after the rent, insurance and taxes.

Students enrolled in the programme of professional practice get paid around 140 EUR per week after rent, insurance expenses and taxes.

As the payment for work in the Netherlands and payment conditions depend on the Dutch employment agency they are discussed in detail during the interview with the Qbis consultant.
