Tulips, windmills and wooden shoes aren’t the only things that the Netherlands is famous for. ASML is helping to put the Netherlands on the map as a high-tech hub. We’re currently Europe’s third most valuable company, with an approximately €270 billion market cap as at October 21, 2021.

The Netherlands is a popular destination for internationals. In 2020, it ranked seventh out of 46 countries in HSBC’s Expat Explorer Survey as a top country for expats. Nearly 90% of Dutch people speak English and over 75% speak German, making it easy for internationals to adjust to life in the Netherlands.

What we do is changing the world as we know it. Avanti is an engineer at our headquarters in Veldhoven and she's proud to be helping to enable almost all technological innovations as part of ASML.

What is pre-employment screening?

Pre-employment screening is one of the final steps in the selection process for both jobs and internships in the Netherlands. This takes place after the candidate has accepted the offer and agreed to begin the screening process. Pre-employment screening ensures we meet legal obligations and protect ASML assets as well as its employees and contractors.

As part of the screening process, we will check information related to identity and education as provided by the candidate, public or government-released sanction lists, and social media sources. For certain vacancies in the Finance, Procurement, IT, Sales, Security and Airfreight sectors, additional checks regarding the resume, references, criminal record and credit risk may be performed.
