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.
