Say what you mean and do what you say
“I’ve worked for a lot of companies in the Randstad metropolitan area before I came to Groningen. Most of them through secondment, but also for project agencies all over the Amsterdam, Rotterdam and the Hague triangle. The general mentality is a little different here; less agitated and a culture of saying what you mean and doing what you say.”

Compact and without closing hours
“It’s nice to live and work in such a laid back city, which I’ve been doing for about 14 years now. Groningen is cozy, uncluttered and most of all very friendly. And it’s also a student town, which means a lot of young people living here and the bars have no closing hours.”

Bustling with tech startups
“There’s a lot of awesome things happening in Groningen. A big number of cool startups and plenty of great job opportunities in IT. It’s funny, I was working with a guy from Hungary for a while and the first time he laid eyes on the city, he immediately fell in love. He thought the culture and ambiance was a little like Budapest. So not much later, he decided to move here and is still happily working for a cool company here.”
