Ozgur: “STAR believed in me”

Ozgur found a new tech job abroad via STAR Specialists

Originally from Turkey, 41-year-old Ozgur has been working a Process Engineer at Worley since November 2022.

“I had experienced work-life in the Netherlands in the past. After returning to Turkey, I decided that I would be more efficient in the Dutch labour market. Several of my former Turkish colleagues already had a contract through STAR in the Netherlands. STAR also believed in me and introduced me to my current client and project.”

“When I landed in Holland, I realised how much I had missed living here. Prosperity is still high. People are still respectful to each other in traffic for example.”

“Swapping a permanent contract in Turkey for a flexible one felt a little risky, but now I see how many contracts are extended due to enough workload. There is a big transition happening in the energy sector. It is a good sign that new investments are planned in the coming years.”

“STAR did great in arranging my visa application and finding good, affordable accommodation. They even assisted with the housing contract and the key delivery. I couldn’t think of anything they could have done better – maybe provide a language course – although you really don’t need to speak Dutch here.”

“In my country of origin, I did business for big companies locally, and now I do business for big companies globally.”
