Foreign staff in more demand

Some 54% of Dutch managers expect to recruit more highly-skilled foreigners to fill vacancies at their firms, according to research by interim jobs agency EssentialPeople, reports news agency ANP.

Foreign staff are popular because they speak good English, are well educated and have a good work ethic, the researchers say. In particular, the financial services and IT sector find it hard to get good staff.
