Jobs and Jobs Quota Act

Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) believes in the success of teams with a diverse composition. As such, EUR wants to offer opportunities to work-disabled people and thus fulfil the requirements of the Jobs and Jobs Quota (Work Disabled Persons) Act ('Wet Banenafspraak').

Every talent counts

Everyone has talents. EUR wants to enable its staff to fulfil their potential by helping them develop and use their talent. Everyone can thus contribute in their own way to the success of our university. We offer a challenging and ambitious working environment with a friendly culture where colleagues feel at home and can be themselves.

No one is the same and everyone brings their own talents to the table. Which job suits someone depends on their education, background, experience and ambitions. The options are therefore wide-ranging and different. We currently employ disabled staff in many different positions. For example, we have tutors, scientific researchers, administrative assistants, stewards, post and logistic employees, policy staff, IT staff, secretaries and team supporters. There are lots of possibilities.

Each employee has varying needs for support. One person can work fully independently, while another needs more intensive and more frequent support. When a person with a work disability comes to work for us, we agree in advance what support is necessary and desirable. Often this is done in consultation with the job coach.

Erasmus University Rotterdam offers training to support supervisors and managers of work-disabled employees. During this training, they receive information, theories, practice examples and tools to support new employees in their job.
