Are you looking for seasonal work to help you earn a salary, pension or retirement? Or maybe you’re interested in summer employment that will earn you an attractive salary while you’re away at university? The ideal solution for women would be to work in the Netherlands. A straightforwardly dream industry for those seeking typically seasonal employment is horticulture.
For whom is a job in horticulture?
One only has to look through the listings of employment agencies to see that a great number of positions come from the horticultural sector. Such employment will be perfect for ladies who are interested in working in the Netherlands without language.
Seasonal occupation can be found primarily in greenhouses growing flowers. Work may involve pruning and caring for roses and tulips, which are very popular in this country. Orchids, chrysanthemums and other ornamental plants are also often grown in Dutch greenhouses. This type of work for women in the Netherlands does not require special qualifications, making it available to almost anyone.
What does the work consist of?
Employment in greenhouses very often involves cutting, sorting and packing flowers for distribution. The occupation can very often be done sitting down so the offers are aimed at people of different physical condition (including pensioners and ladies with moderate disabilities, whose employment for Dutch employers is advantageous due to the possibility of obtaining subsidies).
Less often, workers’ duties also include caring for the plants they grow – such positions require better physical condition, but the pay is usually higher than for sorting and arranging flowers.
Advantages of working in horticulture
As a seasonal job abroad, employment in greenhouses growing flowers and other ornamental plants will perfectly meet the requirements of women who want to earn high wages, but at the same time do not want to undergo a long training course (short initial training is usually already held on site – just before signing the contract). Many ladies opting for seasonal work in the Netherlands appreciate the security of such employment. Working in a greenhouse is an occupation that does not expose one to accidents and takes place in stable conditions.
