Do you still have time to work then?
Ha ha, definitely. I work at a company that makes mosquito nets. It’s simple and light work. So I have enough energy left over to exercise or head out after work.
Does the job pay kind of well?
Kind of? I was kind of earning some money in Bulgaria, just 200 to 300 euros a month. Here I earn a multiple of that amount. It gives me enough financial space to go to the gym five times a week, do all my shopping and also study. I save any money I have left.
What I also find very important is that here in Holland, I have a lot of perspective to grow in my career and personally SBA Flex helps me with that.
What does your average workday look like?
Right now I’m working in Boxtel, which is easy to do by car from Tilburg. We drive together with other colleagues and it takes just 20 minutes. Some of them live in the same house as I do. We often cook dinner together at home, go shopping or just relax in the communal garden. It’s nice and fun living here.
How did you end up at SBA Flex, by the way?
Through Google. I did a targeted search on ‘working in the Netherlands’ and SBA Flex came up at the top. I’m glad I found them. They asked me to come in for a job interview soon after I contacted them. And I started my job already a few days after that. SBA Flex gets things done very quickly.
I’m glad it all worked out this way. And that I’m living in the Netherlands, because the life here is so nice. Everyone speaks English, for instance, which isn’t the case everywhere in Europe. It helps you feel at home very quickly.
