A little bit about the city: Amsterdam

Amsterdam is home to a diverse range of people and rich culture, with each district of the city having its own personality. Although starting life as a modest fishing village, Amsterdam is now a business and tourism hub with over 6 million people flooding here each year to take in the culture.

Notoriously, the city of Amsterdam paints a picture of canals and bicycles. The city’s canal ring has become an iconic image of Amsterdam and remains a beautiful network running through the streets, making canal cruises a popular attraction for visitors of the city. Amsterdam’s public transport system is impressive with metros, ferries, trams, trains and buses making getting around this city a breeze. However, Amsterdam is famous for cyclists, with its scenic canal-lined streets making for a stunning environment to cycle in, what better way of commuting to work?

Years of experience and salary levels are shown purely as a guide. We will only consider applications from candidates that can demonstrate the skills or experience required for the role.

Whilst we would love to respond to every application due to the high numbers we receive we cannot guarantee this.
