Ahmed has been living in the Netherlands for a few years. He found it hard to get a job because he couldn’t speak Dutch. He tried learning the language, but without help he didn’t know where to start. This made his search for work challenging.

He reached out to RivierenlandWerkt. We helped him find a Dutch language course for beginners. Now, he’s successfully working as a logistics coordinator at a local warehouse. There, he uses his improving Dutch skills and his talent for organizing.

Starting with Dutch

Ahmed recalls how difficult it was in the beginning. Not speaking Dutch made it difficult for him to find a job, but also impacted his personal live in the Netherlands. It was hard to connect with neighbors or make new friends in his area.

Ahmed: “The language course helped me a lot. I can speak and understand Dutch better than before. So many things are easier now!”

The language course and support bij RivierenlandWerkt helped him on his way. With his new language skills, Ahmed got a job as a logistics coordinator. There he is able to use his Dutch and improve it even further. He’s happy that he found work that fits him, and where he can connect with others.

Ahmed: “Asking for help was a big step for me. I’m glad I did it. Now, I have a good job and can keep learning.”
