The small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) market is a new event at the Recruitment Days which is organized in cooperation with the municipality of Groningen (Gemeente Groningen). The SME Market provides an opportunity to come into contact with some of the smaller regional firms, who offer a range of interesting career opportunities as well.

Not sure if you’re in for the corporate life with strong hierarchy and bureaucracy? Want to be involved with business from the beginning to the end and make a difference? Don’t want to leave the beautiful Groningen? Check out the SME Market in the Springerfoyer!

The SME market will take place on Tuesday December 12th at the Recruitment Days. The market will be formed by SME partners who each have their own stand. The market will take place during lunch hours from 12:00 to 14:00 in the Springerfoyer, so feel free to pass by before or after your lunch!
