What criteria do we use to choose the best job offer abroad in 2020?

To get a job in the top 5 in 2020, we chose vacancies that are in constant demand and those for which we have enough information to be included in the top 5.

1: Average working hours per week

The main reason for going abroad in 2020 is money. The amount of money you can earn per week depends on the number of hours worked. That’s why the average number of hours worked is an important factor in deciding what would be the best job abroad in 2020.

Every week, Robin receives an overview of employees’ working hours from Dutch recruitment agencies. This allows us to see the number of hours worked and compile data. The average number of working hours ranges from 31 hours to 38 hours per week. This is an average.

2: Gross weekly earnings

Weekly wages depend on the number of hours worked per week. How much can you expect to earn per week in 2020? For this, we use data from the previous year. Gross wages are likely to increase in 2020. Well, now we have the figures to help you find the best job vacancies abroad in 2020. Average weekly earnings range from €317 to €389.

3: Percentage of people still working abroad in 2020

The number of people who remain working for the company is interesting for those who plan to be abroad for a longer period of time in 2020. Of all the people who started working in 2019, we checked how many of them are still working in 2020. Of course, seasonal jobs are not so constant. The percentage of people who started working in 2019 and are still working ranges from 21% to 71%.

4: Feedback

Finds and offers work in one company or another. It is a pity that at least a minimum number of hours is not given at the beginning of the season. Although there probably aren't any. But hopefully when the season starts it will be all right. In a word, I am satisfied with their work. I have no complaints

As we work with plants, there are certain seasons for the distribution work. The season starts at the end of February, when the weather starts to warm up in the Netherlands, and continues until October. Because the work is seasonal, only 21% of the people who started working in plant distribution are still working there. However, during the season, companies allow you to work more than 38 hours per week, after Modexpress, the highest average number of hours needed to be in the top 5 in 2020. With an hourly salary of 9.36 , you should earn an average of €356 per week.

Opportunities for people who don't speak English and couples

If you don’t have a good command of English and you want to go with a partner, your chances of working abroad in 2020 are limited. In this case, working in plant distribution is quite a good offer. At least one of the couple is required to have basic English. As long as you are motivated and physically fit, you can do the job.
