Selection interviews

We will invite you for an interview with a number of our colleagues. This may be a manager, recruiter or future colleague. In this interview we would like to get to know you better, but this is also an important moment for you to see if there is a match. During the interview we will discuss with you your knowledge, gained skills through your experience, and development capabilities. If we would like to talk further with you after the first interview, we will invite you for a follow-up interview. The selection procedure usually consists of one or two interviews.


Online Assessment

For specific positions, we may invite you to complete an online assessment. In that case, you will receive an invitation by e-mail. Through the e-assessment we get the opportunity to test your capabilities, personality traits and development ability (Learning Agility). In the follow-up interview we shall discuss the results of this assessment with you.


Request for references

The manager may ask for references as a part of the procedure. We shall first ask you for your permission and contact information. Just to be clear, we will only check references after you have given permission for this.


Employment conditions proposal

If there is a match on all parts, we shall invite you for a meeting to talk about the terms of employment.


Employment contract

Are you going to say yes to The Hague University of Applied Sciences? We look forward to welcoming you as our new colleague! An employment contract will be drawn up on the basis of a change form filled in by the manager with your details and the agreements made. This may take a while.
