Skills Panorama in the Netherlands
Employment markets are never perfect anywhere. Holland is a prime example of that.
According to Skills Panorama (Cedefop, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training) there are professions in the Netherlands with surpluses, but shortages are evident in some others.
The country has one of the lowest levels of unemployment in Europe and more professionals in the areas of science, ICT and engineering and architecture amongst others are needed.
The economic prospects continue to be favourable for the Netherlands, as the OEDC (Organisation for Economic Development and Co-operation) reports that the response to the COVID crisis has been “timely and supportive”.
