Quality of Life - Spouses
Extra attention for spouses
Today over 40,000 internationals live and work in Brainport Eindhoven. That is why Brainport Eindhoven pays a lot of attention to making sure the region is attractive to international talents and their spouses.
Besides working on excellent facilities and an attractive environment, extra attention is paid to spouses as it is important that the entire family feels at home in the region. That is why Brainport offers several initiatives that are aimed at helping spouses integrate, find a job, get to know the region and connect with like-minded people.
Getting to know people is easy
Expat Spouse Initiative for instance offers spouses a business network in order to help them find a job and the HUB offers spouses a social network.
“I’ve got more acquaintances here than in had in Amsterdam or in Stockholm. I now know people from India, China, Belgium, Spain, Greece… I think it is great that my son grows up in such an international city. I now realise that people who live in the city are more important than beautiful architecture.”
