Career and professional development

The UT strongly believes in recruiting, developing and challenging talented employees

As a member of UT staff, you face the challenge of optimally using your talents and continuously having to work on your development and career. As a manager, you face the challenge of getting the most out of yourself and the staff you are responsible for. As a researcher, you face the challenge of constantly trying to stand out of the crowd, and as a teacher, you face the challenge of providing high-quality education in keeping with modern-day standards. And all of this needs to happen in an international and dynamic environment.

"The UT stimulates individual members of staff, teams and managers to ask questions about their development and helps them by providing specific training programmes, coaching sessions and organizational advice."

Development for employees

The UT wants to facilitate employees in continuous development, so that they can take ownership of their professional development and career. Employees with a broad knowledge who are capable of performing a variety of tasks are able to get the most out of themselves and their work and have less difficulty fulfilling another position, be it inside or outside their present organization. It is up to both the member of staff's, superior and the HR department to provide the employee with optimum support in working on their career development.
The Career Development Centre has a wide range of programmes and activities on offer to help, including:

The Career Development Centre also provides support and advice for individual problems and tailor-made programmes and maintains good contacts with many other major employers in the region. For more information see the my career website.
