“YER provides foreign employees great support”
Test & Verification Engineer, Philips Consumer Lifestyle
As a university student, Nándor Tóbiás already wanted to go abroad to experience the challenges of a new environment and culture. When he was offered a job in the lighting industry, he accepted the opportunity, left family and friends in Hungary and moved to the Netherlands. After a few months, we came into contact and he started working for our client Philips Consumer Lifestyle in December 2014.
Nándor on his job..
“As Test & Verification Engineer I am part of a new young group at Philips. We support projects by testing products and ensuring they meet the specification requirements and legal regulations before they are launched onto the market. We also investigate feedback on on-market products. There is a lot of lab work involved, which I really like. And I love to learn new things, which I get to do every day in this role. That makes the job very interesting!”
..and on YER
“When my first contract in the Netherlands had ended, I did not want to leave the country. I came into contact with a few agencies in the Netherlands, but YER was the fastest and left a very positive impression on me. They provide their employees great support. The professional help I got when filling in my tax returns is a good example. This is very difficult for foreigners; I didn’t even know where to start. YER’s support meant it all went smoothly. The Talent Development Programme is a big plus for me. Two months after I joined YER, I started working to improve the competences I need in my job. This will also help me in my future career.”
