Non-academic staff

Although when universities are mentioned, most people think primarily of opportunities for those who aspire to a scientific career, a large number of our employees work as supporting staff. For the support required for the Executive Board and the organisation of the University as a whole, the Administration and Central Services, the eight expertise centres and the seven faculties require a broad variety of staff, including: ICT experts, legal experts, secretaries, receptionists, marketing and communication staff, financial and real estate experts, and human resources and policy officers. At Leiden University, we also offer these employees an inspiring work environment in which innovation is constantly sought in order to keep up with the dynamic outside world. In addition, our internal mobility policy stimulates staff members to enrich their career with interesting experiences.
