I'm a freelancer working with a US company. I want to move to the Netherlands, so I started looking for a job, but my client suggested another solution: to find an intermediary company in Netherlands that can hire me and outsource me back to my current client.
I earn enough on my current contract to qualify for Highly Skilled Migrant visa, the only problem I need a recognized sponsor in Netherlands to hire me.
I started searching for companies like this, but so far no luck: it seems that most outsourcing firms have only their own existing employees, and at least from looking at their sites, there's no mention of anything like this. So, is this a valid option? Are there companies that do this? And is it legal? Maybe there's some special term for this?
