Applying for a job

Where can I find new jobs on the Nederlia website?

That’s easy – you can find new jobs on the “Find me a job” page. It’s updated all the time, so keep an eye on it!  

I’ve seen a job I like; how can I apply?

This one’s easy too. At the very bottom of the job description, there’s an “Apply now” button. Simply upload your CV, include your LinkedIn handle (this is mandatory) and add a personal message, if you want. We try to review all applicants within 48 hours.  

I can’t find the right opportunity at the moment, where can I send my CV?

If you can’t find the right tech role right now, just send your CV or LinkedIn handle to ninja@nederlia.com. We have new positions opening up all the time, and if you give your consent we can add you to our database so you’ll be the first to hear about relevant new roles.  

How can I get alerts about new jobs?

We don’t have automatic alerts for new tech jobs, but if you send your details to ninja@nederlia.com, we can add you to our database and let you know if any relevant opportunities come up.  

What type of positions do you offer?

Anything you’d find in a tech team! Whether that’s backend developers, frontend developers, fullstack developers, system engineers, IT managers, agile coaches and scrum masters or UX designers.  

Do you work with graduates?

Occasionally we have opportunities for IT and software engineering graduates, but the majority of our roles require at least one year’s experience. If you’re looking for graduate roles, feel free to send your information over to ninja@nederlia.com and we will keep an eye out for you.  

I applied for a job but I haven’t heard anything. What can I do?

If you’ve applied for a job and haven’t heard anything for more than 48 hours (not including weekends!), send a reminder email to ninja@nederlia.com and we will do our best to chase your application and get back to you as soon as possible.  

The recruitment process

What type of questions will I be asked in my interview?

The type of questions you might get asked in an interview will depend on the role you’re applying for and your level of experience. But don’t worry – if we submit your CV to a client and you start the recruitment process with them, we will help you prepare for interviews. We will have specific calls to go through the kinds of questions you might be asked, and will give you detailed feedback to help you prepare for the next stage.  

How important is a good knowledge of the English language?

For most of our roles, a good level of English is required. Most of the clients we work for are international and speak English in the office, so most of the interviews and technical tests are also in English.  

Will I have to take a technical test?

Whether or not you have to take a technical test will depend on the role you’re applying for and your level of experience. Most of our roles will involve a test of some sort, as they’re a fair way of assessing candidates’ skills and experience. Just like for interviews, we will help you prepare for the technical test and will give you tons of feedback once you’ve completed it.  

How quickly will I receive feedback?

When you apply to a job, we aim to get back to you and let you know whether you’ve been successful within two working days. When you start a recruitment process with a client, we can’t guarantee quick feedback because it depends on the client and the number of other candidates that are in the process. We will obviously do our best to get you thorough feedback, as quickly as possible.  

If I’m not successful, will I still receive feedback?

Absolutely. Once you enter a recruitment process, we will give you thorough feedback at every stage.  

How do you make sure your recruitment process is fair?

Out of our control. Work closely with companies to make sure candidates receive a fair process  

How long does the recruitment process usually take?

The length of the process depends on the position you’re applying for and your level of experience, as that will affect the number of stages (interviews and technical tests) you need to go through. For some positions you could receive an offer two weeks after you apply for the role, but for other positions it could take a month or two. It will also depend on whether you’re applying for an international role and need a visa or work permit to relocate.  

Will I be employed by you or by the client directly?

Candidates are always employed the company directly. We do our best to make the perfect match between our clients and potential candidates, but once you accept the job you’ll be out employed directly by them.  

Relocation and remote working

If I’m offered a job in another country, will Nederlia help me relocate?

We will provide you with advice at every stage of the application process, including relocating to different country. We don’t provide financial or legal support, but many of our clients do.  

I don’t have an EU work permit, can you help me get one?

Nederlia can’t get you an EU work permit, but there are schemes like the EU Blue Card and Dutch Highly Skilled Migrant Visa that give international candidates EU work permits. Many of the companies we work for hire non-EU candidates and help them secure work permits.  

I have a family, will the company help them get visas too?

Most EU visas and work permits for non-EU nationals also relocate immediate family members, but this will depend on the country you’re applying to and the type of work permit or residence visa you’re hoping to receive.  

I would like to work remotely – is that an option too?

Remote work is a hot topic at the moment, and more and more of the companies we work with are now offering the opportunity to work remotely.

The recruitment process

 

How do you source candidates?

We have a full-time sourcing team ready and waiting to help find your missing tech team members. Supported by your account managers and senior tech recruiters, the sourcing team reach out to passive candidates with full transparency using a broad sourcing mix tailored to your specific requirements.  

What is your recruitment process?

Before we start the recruitment process, an experienced tech recruiter will work closely with your team to understand your specific sourcing and recruitment needs. From that point we can help with everything from sourcing passive candidates, undertaking initial video screening calls and managing technical tests to full pipeline support and offer management.  

How do you evaluate technical skills?

We work hard to make sure we find the best possible candidates for your tech team. Although we are not developers ourselves, we’ve spent years working closely with developers, designers and IT specialists, as well as technical project managers and CTOs – so we know how to assess technical skills and experience to make sure we find the candidates who are going to make a big impact on company or product.  

How long until we start to receive candidates from you?

We’d love to say tomorrow, but obviously it depends on your requirements (the level of seniority you’re after, for example). Taking into account that 95% of the candidates we are in touch with are not actively looking for a job, we aim to start presenting candidates 7-10 days from qualification.
