Podium24 is a cooperation of six municipalities in the Dutch ‘Heuvelland’ region in South Limburg (Maastricht, Meerssen, Valkenburg, Eijsden-Margraten, Gulpen-Wittem and Vaals). Podium 24 helps companies to find staff. People with a certain distance to the labour market are the main target group. Podium24 stimulates people to cross the Dutch-Flemish border to explore job offers in the neighbouring country.
Inhabitants of the municipalities Sittard-Geleen, Beek and Stein can make use of Vidar’s services to find work, develop skills and receive income support. Work can mean either paid or subsidised jobs. But also a protected work environment, volunteer work and informal care are possible. Our mission is to provide work and opportunities for everyone!
Employers and organizations can contact Vidar for recruitment and selection of personnel, as well as advice about personnel issues, subsidies and schemes. Vidar offers tailor-made advice and solutions and has a diverse database of job-seekers who are eager to work. These are people who are looking for a new challenge, or people with a certain distance to the labour market. These can be young people, people over 50, status holders and people with labour disabilities. But also job-seekers from the border regions (Belgium and Germany).
Companies can also come to Vidar for the outsourcing of production work. This can include assembly and (re)packaging of products. Production work can be very diverse, taking place in-house in a company as well as in Vidar’s own production halls. Please check the Vidar website for more information: www.vidar.nl
