Who are we?

Port of Opportunities is an employment agency with a social goal, namely helping newcomers in the Netherlands with finding a job that fits their potential.

Through our network we try to find the right match for each of our candidates. Profit is not our main goal, but merely a way for us to keep investing in our candidates and our company.

Port of Opportunities is located in Spijkenisse, Stationsstraat 2, zip code 3201 AS. Here you will find our office and event location Main Deck.
