Uitzendkracht Petra

Meet our colleague Petra!

NWH Jobs stands for down-to-earth, customer-focused and human. We try to put these core values into everything we do. Both to the client and our (international) colleagues. We are there for them 24/7 and find it important that they quickly feel at home in the Netherlands. This includes personal contact. We would therefore like to introduce our colleagues to you. This month it’s Petra’s turn. She is 37 years old and comes from Czech Republic. What does Petra do, what makes her work so enjoyable and why did she choose NWH Jobs? You can reed it here.

“I love the architecture in the Netherlands. The towns are charming, romantic and almost fairy-tale-like.”

What kind of work do you do?

“I work for a company that sells various types of potted plants. The company is located in a small village called Woubrugge, and I drive to work by car.”

How did you end up at NWH Jobs?

“After working in the same position in my own country for 13 years, I decided to change something in my life. I went to New Zealand where I took a 3-month trip to improve, among other things, my English. The pandemic forced me to return home. Unfortunately, upon my return, I found it difficult to find a job. That’s when I came across a vacancy from NWH Jobs Netherlands on social media. After a brief consideration, I decided to take the step and work in the Netherlands.”

How long have you been in the Netherlands?

“I came to the Netherlands in 2020, so I have been here for 4 years now.”

What do you like most about the Netherlands?

“I love the architecture in the Netherlands. The towns are charming, romantic and almost fairy-tale-like. The numerous canals crossing the streets create a unique atmosphere.”

What do you like and enjoy about your job?

“My job suits me in many perspectives. I like that I meet different people here. I enjoy working with plants and flowers because I believe the products we prepare for customers later bring joy to others, which is a comforting thought.”

What do you do in your spare time?

“In my spare time, I enjoy taking trips around the Netherlands and spending a lot of time with my friends and neighbors. We often have barbecues together.”

Which Dutch habit do you find funny?

“What I find funny is that when you go to a birthday party here, you say to everyone ‘congratulations’ instead of just the person, who’s celebrating their birthday.”
