About Make it in the North

We're a project that solves two problems by bringing them together: the shortage on the Northern Dutch job market, and internationals looking for work.

We build a bridge between companies in Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe and English-speaking talent through a career-job portal, network events, job fairs and tireless enthusiasm.

About the North

Make it in the North was created by a big group of organisations in the Northern Netherlands (business associations, universities, city governments, and other). All these organisations wish to connect internationals and internationally-minded Dutchies with local companies. We are super proud of our region and of its increasing internationalization, and we want to make this place welcoming for everyone.
