Are you or is someone close to you looking for a new career challenge? Do you know how many work and training opportunities there are here on our doorstep in The Hague?

Whether you’re an experienced professional, a college leaver, or returning to work after a career break. Whatever your interest and skill set, there are hundreds of openings within reach. Meet some of the big employers of international staff at The Feel at Home Fair this Sunday 2 February.

The Fair will have a special focus on career opportunities for internationals living in the region or thinking of moving here. The Hague Talent Hub will feature employers from multinational organisations such as OPCW, US Mission to The Netherlands, Eurojust and Europol, to small businesses and quirky start-ups. Also on hand will be advisors from The Hague’s many agencies which facilitate business and help build the region’s reputation as a centre of excellence in security, peace and justice, underpinned by cutting edge innovation and technology.

A series of lectures will be presented in the impressive Raadzaal (council chamber) of the City Hall during the Fair. Everyone is invited to attend, even if it is just out of curiosity about the work intergovernmental agencies such as Eurojust and OPCW do in The Hague.

Students, teachers, parents, employers….everyone is concerned about the Future of Education and how we give the students of today the skills and opportunities to succeed in the workplace.
