Working at UM

UM strives to remain an attractive employer. We are convinced that we can achieve this by challenging and encouraging staff and students to get the best out of themselves, by deploying staff in those areas in which they perform best and feel most at home, and by hiring and retaining staff who fit with UM’s profile and ambitions.

To this end, internationalisation – most clearly reflected in the diverse nationalities and cultures represented at the university – is an explicit objective, as is the growing importance of English language skills in all positions within UM.

Knowledge Centre for International Staff

Maastricht University is keen to provide its international employees and their family members with a warm welcome and a good start to their stay in Maastricht or its surrounds.

 Are you a new foreign incoming employee? 
 Are you a current foreign UM employee? 
 Are you a UM employee and will you be posted abroad? 

Your HR adviser will inform KCIS of all new foreign employees joining us at Maastricht University or of UM employees being posted abroad. KCIS will then contact you to guide you through the various steps necessary to start working for the university.

You will find all necessary information for international employees on the KCIS website.

Maastricht Bereikbaar
Because of the work on the A2 motorway and the construction of the tunnel, all kinds of initiatives were started to reduce the number of movements around Maastricht. Maastricht University has signed an agreement and therefore committed itself to work actively with this.
