Working in the region
Many Groningen residents work elsewhere in the region.
For instance, the Eemshaven, on the northern coast, is a major seaport and data hub employing many new residents - read more about it on our business page.
At Make it in the North, you can find all jobs for internationals in Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe. It may surprise you that not all big companies are in the cities - many businesses are in the surrounding towns. The sustainable energy sector has many opportunities in the greater region of Groningen.
Many residents commute to other regional capitals. Leeuwarden, the capital of Friesland, is a 40 minute train ride from Groningen, and Assen, the capital of Drenthe, is just 20 minutes away by train.
