The Flexpool: A new service from the Netherlands Business Council UAE

We are excited to announce Flexpool, a new NBC service that connects a UAE-based flexible workforce of Dutch talents with the NBC members. This service fits perfectly in our ambition to connect Dutch businesses and professionals in the UAE to exchange expertise and knowledge to support entrepreneurs in doing business in the UAE and wider GCC region. 

Why did we start The Flexpool? 

We know that there’s a lot of experience and motivation among the partners of working expats; professionals that had a career embarked on an adventure with their partner and put their own career (temporarily) on hold. A source of talent that is underutilized and a missed opportunity in our opinion. We know they can be a great addition to the workforce. 

The benefits for members at a glance:

  • A quick solution in case of leave of absence of employees due to illness, holiday or maternity leave.
  • A cost-effective solution for temporary projects or during peak business periods.
  • The perfect solution for part-time functions.
  • Partners already have a local sponsor, so there are no additional visa costs.

Our Mission

The aim is to help NBC members in their search for the right flexible talents and the Flexpool coordinator will actively look for the right match. Especially now during the Covid-19 pandemic your organization might have a need for flexible talents who are highly motivated to work and can start almost immediately.

We currently have over 20  talents in our pool. In the field of HR, administration, marketing, sales, senior commercial executive management and more. As a NBC member, you can receive an overview of the talents in The Flexpool.

Are you not a member but are you looking for a Dutch talent to work at your company or represent you in the UAE? Join the NBC today!

Don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or if you are interested to be part of the Flexpool. For more information or an updated list, please contact our coordinator Nelleke de Heer by email:

We will keep you informed of all developments.
