Where do you start looking for a job? There are 2 Dutch temporary employment agencies that arrange everything from job application to salary payment. This has advantages and disadvantages. The run is much easier, everything is arranged for you. Once you are at work and something happens like a conflict or an accident, the intervention agency’s intervention can delay the settlement. Salary negotiations are also easier if you apply directly at the hotel. Below links to the employment agencies:
But of course you can also search yourself in the vacancies of the hotels themselves, so you have much more choice. Below is a list of Austrian job sites:

Working for a national employment agency?
If you are employed by a Dutch temporary employment agency, you are insured in the Netherlands for social insurance such as disability insurance, unemployment benefits, AOW and make use of your Dutch health insurance. Be well informed by the employment agency.
Working for an Austrian company?
If you are employed by an Austrian company, then you are insured in Austria for this business supplemented with health insurance. You receive the green E-card (shown below), you can go anywhere you need medical treatment. Check well with your employer that you will be registered before you start and everything is well organized. In both cases, take out travel insurance, which covers accidents outside working hours. The maximum length is important, many standard travel insurances have a coverage of up to 60 days, but this can be extended.
Additional insurance Alpenverein / ÖSV
In most cases, things like off-piste skiing, helicopter transport and repatriation are not included in the basic insurance. That is why we recommend taking out supplementary insurance from the Austrian Alpine Region or the ÖSV. These insurances only cost € 30-40, – per year and take away the risk that you have a bill of € 5000 on the mat after an accident with helicopter transport.
