Could you tell me a bit more about your hiring process?

At The Talent Institute, we firmly believe that diverse teams perform better than monotonous teams. We aim for a 50/50 male-to-female split and people that identify themselves as any other than male or female are just as welcome. We also place great importance on diversity in backgrounds and cultures, thus we set a goal of having 11% of our employees identify as Non-Western, which is the same percentage at Dutch universities and higher education institutions. To minimize the chances of subjective hiring we partnered up with Equalture for our hiring process. This is a revolutionary game-based assessment technology, designed to remove subjectivity from start to hire.

When is the program start date?

The first start date is in Q3 2024. If you're already interested in beginning the application process, you can do so.

What will be my workplace?

It depends on the client or project you are working on. Always at least one day at TTI to learn, connect and have fun. And you can otherwise choose between your home or a coffee company.

Do you support a work permit?

No, we cannot provide IND visa sponsorship to candidates. You need to have a valid residence and work permit before you can apply.

What kind of employee contract do I get?

You will get an employment contract with TTI.
