Our story

 

how it all started

For his final internship, Merijn worked in Bonaire in the Caribbean. Here his nights were filled with nightly entertainment: being chased by street dogs and drinking cocktails at the beach. During his time there, the idea of starting his own company emerged. This idea grew further while he was living together with Jort in Colombia.

 

How it continues

After a couple of months in the business, Merijn was at a party late at night talking passionately about The Work Embassy. Leonardo heard the conversation and was immediately hooked on the idea. They all have an international experience in the hospitality sector from Australia to Belgium. Therefore they understand what it is to live abroad, being exposed to new cultures and the fact that these experiences are invaluable. To this date, it has been a fun, crazy, challenging and priceless experience with great adventures ahead.  

Returning home a single problem was clearly present: a big shortage of hospitality talent in the Netherlands. Merijn saw owners struggling with finding and attracting talent, some even had to close due to the lack of personnel. There was a lot of talent in Europe, however, as a hospitality owner, it can be rather difficult to find the time to look for staff, let alone staff abroad. At that moment The Work Embassy was born. A company that connects talent with hospitality owners, creating a more connected more intertwined hospitality world, figuratively ‘deleting borders’.
