Career Membership

The platform to bring together career seekers and our corporate community.

MDBC is at the heart of a network of organisations with Malaysian Dutch links.  These organisations, which are active in a wide variety of sectors, often employ a diverse, multicultural workforce.  Simultaneously, MDBC has a close connection with the Dutch expat community and people who quickly want to expand their business network in Malaysia. 

This puts MDBC in the ideal position to connect both.  The MDBC Career Membership intends to bridge the gap between potential employers or companies looking to diversify their workforce, and professionals who want to kick start their career opportunities in Malaysia.
