What we're about

A warm welcome to our technical engineers in Eindhoven!

Are you looking forward to meet new people, improving yourself and interacting with Dutch people, language and culture? If your answer is yes, I invite you to join our HighTechTalents Community!

The Netherlands provides new challenges and opportunities for expats, it is a different environment, climate, culture, norms and cuisine what makes living here, a unique experience. Although the main reason you chose to move to the Netherlands may have been inspired by your career, we believe that the social aspect of life is just as important. As the old adage says, "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy...", a dysfunctional social life will eventually have a negative impact on your performance at work, therefore it is important to actively maintain your social life.

We as HighTechTalents want to create an community which is focused on you! We want you to feel at home. What makes our community different is that we will expose you to Dutch culture, habits and language, by having Dutch people participate during our community events, giving you the opportunity to interact with them. This way you will integrate directly and you really could say The Netherlands is your home.

How our community is going to look like?

We will share useful information, articles and movies on all our social media and will organize monthly events in or nearby Eindhoven like:

- Sport, Music or Dance event

- Self-development event

- Dutch language and culture classes

Attendance for the events will require a small contribution from you, the exact amount will depend on the nature of the activity.

The success of the community will depend on the consistency of your attendance, we encourage you to participate whole heartedly, remember, it is you who makes the community great! We aspire to create an enriching and welcoming environment for all.

See below what our upcoming events are and sign yourself in!

We are looking forward to see you!
