Expat Centre Leiden’s aim is to make international employment and life in Leiden and the greater region a successful experience. By building networks and communities, we make international people feel at home and help employers with global mobility of their staff.

Providing complete support packages, we are establishing Leiden as a region for international talent. This is done in collaboration with a network of local businesses, municipalities, and other organizations.

In this February edition we cover a variety of topics, from becoming a recognised sponsor to implementing the best working from home arrangements for your employees. Don’t forget to tell your international employees about our events – the welcome to Leiden webinar is particularly useful for newcomers!
