Due to the legalities of the profession in The Netherlands, there are certain eligibility criteria that you must meet in order to qualify for a veterinary role in The Netherlands. These are:

  • You must have an EU passport that allows you to freely travel to The Netherlands
  • Your veterinary degree must have been obtained from a University in the EU to be recognised in The Netherlands (we will double check this for you using the information on the registration form)
Role requirements

For this role, you must be a vet with previous experience and confidence to work sole charge in an emergency setting performing consultations and surgery with the assistance of a nursing team. You will ideally have experience in ECC and a minimum of two years of clinical experience.

About the relocation package

If you are interested in working in The Netherlands, you will be able to participate in a relocation and induction package that takes place over the course of roughly 6 months to prepare you for your role. Here’s what happens:

  • You will take Dutch classes for the first 12 weeks. You may still be living and working abroad at this point.
  • You will relocate to The Netherlands and start a programme of Dutch classes with clinical internships. You will receive allowances and salaries throughout this entire period while you are still receiving language training and clinical training.
  • You are offered accommodation or an allowance and a car for the period of your training.
  • At the end of the programme, you will take a full time or part-time job that may consist of 2 weeks of work followed by 2 weeks free from work, which would allow you to travel back to your home country.

The salary offered for the full-time role after training is finished is roughly 3000€.
