Recruitment and internationalisation


The UT strives for high-quality education, research and support. Therefore, attracting and selecting top talent is crucial.

HR offers assistance to managers and members of recruitment and selection committees in professionally recruiting and selecting top talent. Examples of this assistance include advice on: target group-oriented recruitment, creating attractive candidate profiles, competency-oriented selection, selecting conversation techniques and utilization of additional selection methods. The University of Twente acts in conformity with the so-called 'NVP Sollicitatiecode', a code of conduct for the transparent and fair recruitment and selection of future members of staff set up by the Dutch Association for Personnel Management and Organisation Development (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Personeelsmanagement & Organisatieontwikkeling). When appointing new administrative and support staff, screening is part of the selection procedure. Our screening policy reflects the careful and transparent way in which we recruit and select new members of staff.

When attracting international staff, theĀ International Service TeamĀ is responsible for providing assistance during the visa procedures.
