But if you were curious of what Wypoon does, no worries we prepared you a detailed description of the recruitment and relocation process step-by-step.
1 Finding possible candidates
Our recruiters are always in search of new people who meet the criteria mentioned above.
2 Get in contact and meet with the candidate
After identifying a candidate with the right skills, our recruiters will get in contact with them and set up a video call interview to evaluate their communication skills, proficiency in English, and work ethic. They will also ensure that the candidate has a valid passport, is open to relocating to the Netherlands or Belgium, and is willing to stay for at least one year.
After getting to know the candidate better, our recruiters explain what they can expect when working with Wypoon Technologies and relocating to the Netherlands, including the benefits of working with Wypoon, the cost of living, and the tax benefits for highly skilled migrants. They will also ask the candidate about their expectations.
4 Skills form
In this phase, the candidate receives a form that they need to fill out with their skills and other details.
5 Technical test & interview
The candidate will then meet with our technical team and complete a code exam. They will also have a technical interview where they will discuss the results of their exam. This evaluation and interview are a critical milestone in the process, and based on the results, the technical team will determine if the candidate's skills meet Wypoon Technologies' standards.
6 Meet our sales department
After passing the technical evaluation and interview, the candidate will meet with our sales department who will review the results and arrange an interview with the candidate. This interview will cover personality traits and general skill sets in more detail, and the sales department will determine if the candidate is a good fit for Wypoon Technologies.
In this phase, the candidate will be contacted by Wypoon's HR department and receive a pre-contract. This contract ensures that the candidate will not work for other companies for the next 4 months and also ensures that both parties will respect their agreement.
8 CV improvements
After signing the pre-contract, the candidate will receive assistance from our staff with improving their CV, discussing the contract, and preparing for the client interview.
9 Meet the client
After passing all the previous steps, the candidate will be introduced to the client. The client will have an interview with them and, in some cases, may require additional code exams. The client will decide whether to hire the candidate based on the interview and if the decision is favorable, the candidate will have a new job as a consultant for Wypoon Technologies.
10 Visa Application
Wypoon applies and pays for the candidate’s Highly Skilled Migrant (HSM) Residence Permit and MVV (short stay visa).
11 MVV & HSM biometrics appointment
Each candidate will need to attend an appointment at the Dutch embassy in their country in which they provide their signature and biometrics for the HSM Residence Permit & MVV. During this appointment, the Embassy will take your passport so that the MVV can be printed into the passport pages. You will be able to pick up your passport (with MVV) within 2 weeks.
12 Getting a client and a contract
Once the candidate is accepted as a consultant for a client and we receive the contract, we will write up an employment contract between Wypoon Technologies and the consultant. This contract can be project or time based. In this contract, the terms of employment are laid out, including salary and number of holidays.
After the Wypoon and the client have signed a contract regarding the consultant’s work order, Wypoon will arrange a flight for the consultant from their home country to the Netherlands. Although Wypoon does not pay for this flight, it is usually covered by the relocation budget offered by Wypoon which amounts to 1,500 euros.
14 Looking for housing
As soon as we know that a consultant will be coming to the Netherlands, we will begin looking for housing for them. This process begins with the HR Manager reaching out to the consultant to see what they are looking for in their accommodation. For example, if a consultant plans to bring their family to the Netherlands, our HR manager and the consultant might discuss aiming for a house with more than 1 bedroom, a bathtub, and a garden. During this process we also discuss budgets for housing, and whether of not the candidate prefers a furnished or unfurnished house. Candidates should understand that finding a home in the Netherlands can be tricky, especially the candidate does not yet live in the Netherlands. Given this, they should take into account that most candidates will stay in a hotel during their first month in the Netherlands.
15 Departure and Arrival
The people at Wypoon understand that migrating can be a very stressful experience, this is why our HR manager maintains contact with you throughout your journey to the Netherlands. Upon arrival, one of our employees will also pick up the consultant from the airport and bring them to their home or hotel.
Even before you arrive in the Netherlands, a number of administrative appointments will be made for the consultant.
