We explicitly recognize the positive value of diversity. We aim to recruit the person who is most suited to the job and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds – people of all ages, gender, sexual orientations, nationalities, religions and beliefs. We particularly encourage applications from women, disabled and minority candidates, as these groups frequently are underrepresented throughout the academic sector. We also want to emphasize that our work environment offers some flexibility to suit your particular life circumstances. This includes schedule (working hours and days, religious holidays, etc.) and location (some home office possible) flexibility. In addition, WU offers free training and career development courses to encourage employee career and personal development.
