Application procedure  

Upon receipt of your application, which will mostly consist of a resume and cover letter, you will immediately receive an automatic confirmation of your application. We strive to give you a first response as soon as possible. This is normally two weeks after the deadline.

Your application will only be considered if you respond via the online application button. Applications received by e-mail will not be considered.

A selection committee evaluates whether you meet the job requirements and invites candidates for an interview. 

Job interviews usually take place at a VU location, but sometimes a candidate is invited for a video interview. VU uses MS teams for this purpose.


Depending on the position, a reference check, Certificate of Conduct (VOG) and/or assessment may be part of the application process. The submission of a diploma is always requested.

Internal VU candidates

If an internal candidate applies at the same time as you, preference will be given to the internal candidate in case of equal suitability.

Candidates with occupational disabilities

The Participation Service Point was established as an HRM expertise point to provide advice and support in hiring and supervising colleagues with an occupational disability. 

If you have an occupational disability, we also invite you to respond. Should you need support in the application process, please contact the Participation Service Point. Together we can see if and how we can possibly fill the position. 

If you fall under the Jobs Agreement and do not see a suitable vacancy, we would also like to meet you. Please send an e-mail to
