  1. Payout and Payments at Efficient at Work

At the same time, we would like you to be able to keep track of your remuneration in a simple and convenient way, which is why we are providing the app Plan4Flexso that you can keep track of your finances.
Your first payment will be made after one week of work. If you're just starting out and don't have a BSN yet, don't worry - you can confidently start working even from the first day you arrive and we'll help you through the process.

  1. Accommodation and Insurance Costs:

It is worth knowing that accommodation costs are €111.58 per week (at the date of the blog) and insurance is an additional €36.50 per week.

Remember identity documents such as SoFi/BSN number, bank account number.
It's also worth thinking about comfortable work clothes that are suited to your specific job. This could be tracksuit bottoms, jeans or warm clothes, depending on what industry you will be working in.
