Qualification Details

We are looking for a colleague who likes to contribute to a high-quality professional service in a personal culture:

  • You have senior (7-10 years) recruitment experience, preferably also including executive search;
  • You have a passion for searching and sourcing for candidates not actively looking for a position;
  • You show guts, determination, and patience;
  • You have a structured approach;
  • You are a team worker;
  • You have a master degree, preferably in a technical field;
  • You have excellent verbal and written skills in English (C level) and Dutch is an advantage;
  • Preferably you have experience within the context of government institutions or, academia.

Responsibilities/Job Description

As an experienced recruiter, together with our academic staff and HR advisors, you will have the opportunity to attract scientific staff from all over the world.  You will actively search for qualified academic candidates (assistant, associate, and full professors) on a global scale. Your passion for searching and sourcing passive candidates will contribute to your success.  You will be involved in pre-selection and will interview candidates, frequently together with your hiring manager.  Additionally, your drive for achievement will help to ensure that your hiring managers are engaged and committed throughout the entire process.  Your success will come as a result of your internal drive.

Unique … you are asking yourself what makes this opportunity so unique …?  Recruiting professors, an experience most recruiters have not had before.  Academia is culturally vastly different than industry.  The environment offers significant freedom and flexibility.  You will have the chance to build up relationships not only with your hiring managers, but also the various departments managing directors and deans.  Through your credibility you will become a trusted partner for them, helping and advising them regarding their hiring choices.  After all, it is the people that create the culture.

The path to a successful hire can be a rather lengthy journey.  This means that you have significant time to build up relationships with your candidates.  This also makes for a unique situation in that often the candidate journey is 6+ months.  You become not only the trusted partner internally, but also externally with your candidates.  What ultimately can start out as a candidate, can also be your potential next hiring manager.

The Talent Attraction team started in March 2019.  Eindhoven University of Technology was the first university in the Netherlands to setup a dedicated recruitment team.  Since 2019 many other universities in the Netherlands have followed with in-house recruitment.  The market for professors globally is competitive, which is part of the driving factor for adding the functional expertise of recruitment to HR.  As a member of the TA team, you will have the opportunity to further professionalize and expand recruitment within the university.
