Voices from the university

"What is also important is that the university is a very secure place to work because we are part of the public sector. At the same time, the common prejudices and clichees are not confirmed here at all. We are not dusty and stuck in the last century. On the contrary - the university is a very flexible workplace, for example with the home office offer."

"If you have any questions or problems, there is always someone who can give you answers or help you. The fact that I don't have the same tasks every day at work motivates me again and again. What I also like is that the university always offers opportunities for further training and to get involved in new projects. The combination that the university offers me of a varied job, in which it is also possible to learn something new, and a secure job with a good work-life balance, remuneration and free offers for employees is very attractive to me."
