Dutch term or phrase: Goed betaald aan de slag!

Well paid...
Explanation:
Litterally: "Well paid get cracking / get busy / start working..."

Most probably some PR from a company looking for employees - means: start working (here) whilst drawing nice wages. Hence, "start working (with us) and get paid well"
