British workers in the Netherlands earn higher salaries than most other immigrant groups and over half have a Dutch partner, the national statistics office CBS said on Wednesday.
Almost four in 10 earn more than €4,000 gross a month while half have a salary of over €3,000. This, the CBS said, is because they are most likely to work in high-earning sectors such as finance and communications.
Some 46,000 ‘first generation’ British immigrants currently live in the Netherlands, most of whom are based in wealthier parts of the country.
For example, one in 50 Wassenaar residents was born in Britain, the CBS said. The Gooi area around Hilversum and Haarlem are also popular with British residents although the biggest populations – around 11,000 in total – are in The Hague and Amsterdam.
