What is Welcome app?

Imagine: you are trying to build a new life in a foreign country – from scratch. Where do you start? Information is not easily accessible, you don’t yet speak the language, and you don’t know how to make new connections. Many newcomers in the Netherlands face these challenges.

Welcome app makes building your new life easier. We do this by making relevant information, activities, services, and local organizations accessible in one place: the Welcome app. We are currently working for six municipalities: Almere, Den Bosch, Dordrecht, Leiden, Oegstgeest, and Venlo. Our ambition is to grow to 65 Dutch municipalities in the next three years. We also have international ambitions.

Who are we looking for?

  • You are proactive, independent, and precise.
  • You’re not afraid to pick up the phone or approach people.
  • You are proficient with Google, Excel, and Canva.
  • You enjoy meeting new people and are curious.
  • You understand what it takes to put on a successful event.

What will you do?

As a project assistant, you are the right hand of our project coordinators in activating organizations and organizing community events. You ensure that the organizations and volunteers receive the correct information about Welcome app and help maintain these relationships. In addition, you create a clear script for our events, and everything is worked out to the smallest detail. You value a professional appearance, like to think about how things can be improved, and of course, you always check if all the details are correct.

  • A varied part-time job for 16-24 hours a week;
  • Think along and build on a growing tech start-up with a social purpose and the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on newcomers.
