IT Services


Luxembourg has been catching up in terms of digitalisation lately: teleworking has revolutionised some sectors of activity, such as the IT sector for example. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is starting to open its doors to freelance experts from all over Europe. A trend that is attracting more and more workers in search of independence (entrepreneurship etc.). 


Also, a large number of professionals want to make the most of their skills on missions they choose themselves. The number of freelancers on this market in Luxembourg is therefore constantly growing.
