Waarom werken bij KdG?

Eerlijk? Jij moet vooral gaan werken waar je je goed voelt. Zoek je een job met een positieve impact op de maatschappij en een context waar samenwerken en inclusie centraal staan? Dan praten we daar graag eens over met je. Want dat (en nog veel meer) krijg je bij KdG. Jouw verhaal wordt deel van ons verhaal.  




Van onze Engelstalige opleidingen tot de optie om zelf op uitwisseling eens naar het buitenland te gaan. We hebben heel wat in de aanbieding.

Bijdragen aan de samenleving 

Jij maakt mee het verschil voor onze studenten, medewerkers, samenwerkingspartners en voor de maatschappij. Daar mag je fier op zijn. Met jouw opgedane ervaring en motivatie bouw je mee aan een gezamenlijke ambitie: positieve maatschappelijke verandering.

Hybride werken 

Je krijgt de nodige autonomie om zelf je werk te plannen en dus ook hybride te werken. Wel streven naar een gezonde mix van on campus en thuiswerk met het oog op een goede balans tussen de voordelen van telewerk en die van real-live samenwerken. 

Je welkom én thuis voelen 

Iedereen is welkom. Het klinkt misschien cliché, maar daar streven we echt naar: een omgeving met gelijkwaardige kansen voor iedereen, wie je ook bent, van waar je ook komt. Diversiteit is een feit, inclusie onze keuze. 

Ervaar de kracht van samenwerken 

Je staat er niet alleen voor. Beloofd. In een grote organisatie zoals die van ons is het in het begin soms even zoeken. Maar je team en de mensen rondom je zijn er om je bij te staan. Dat komt helemaal goed.  

Brede jobmogelijkheden 

Qua vacatures in een hogeschool, denk je waarschijnlijk spontaan aan lesgeven. Maar we hebben nog veel meer te bieden. Je kan ook aan de slag als onderzoeker, leidinggevende, coach, IT-expert, projectmedewerker, business developer en ga zo maar door. Kansen die we je graag zien grijpen. 

Is this vacancy for you?
