Employment conditions


The Academy offers its staff a versatile and flexible employment package. This package consists of pay and employee benefits, including an attractive salary, as stipulated in the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities and our own employment conditions. A package that meets the different needs of employees depending on their stage of life, lifestyle or career ambitions.

Financial security

For employees who want more financial security, we have fully paid-up insurance for partial occupational disability, we pay the full premium for a fund to which employees can apply in the case of ‘financial hardship’, and employees can use a collective insurance that provides a monthly payment to their partner in the case of death. In addition, we offer collective health insurance through OHRA with a premium discount.

Sports fans among employees are catered for by being given the opportunity to exchange gross salary for a net allowance for sports activities and/or to purchase a bicycle through the Academy's Individualised Package of Employment Benefits.

For more information on our employment conditions, please refer to the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities/KNAW and the Academy's employment conditions.
