Type of roles

We are looking for people to fulfil a number of different roles.


As a lecturer, you will maintain lots of contact with our students and ensure that they successfully develop into professionals. You will do this by communicating your knowledge of a topic and supervising their studies, internships, or assignments. Alongside teaching, you can focus on other activities that may interest you such as developing education, performing research, or contributing to a field committee. To that end, you have many contact persons outside of your own programme department and outside of Zuyd. No two working days are the same. While there are periods during the academic year that require extra effort, this is mitigated by plenty of holiday days. Alongside its lecturers, Zuyd employs educational staff and teaching assistants who assist students and lecturers and provide support in the form of lab tutorials, practicals, etc.


Professors perform practical research, often together with lecturer-researchers, students, and external experts. This research is conducted both on behalf of Zuyd and at the requests of businesses. Professors also work together with teaching teams to review how knowledge from research can improve education. This therefore represents an opportunity to make a lasting impact on your area of expertise and on Zuyd’s education.

Support staff/teaching support staff

To properly support all processes concerning education, Zuyd employs significant numbers of support staff/teaching support staff including secretaries, IT specialists, policy employees, communication advisors, management assistants, buyers, HR advisors, legal staff, receptionists, technical staff, administrative staff, etc. These are employed either in a management office for Schools, in a location, or in one of the service departments. As a member of support staff, you also contribute to students' development.
You can learn more about the many types of positions at universities of applied sciences on (in Dutch only).

Career and education
