In addition, the team is responsible for:

  • Liaising with and advising faculty and centre leadership on all formal procedural matters related to professorial recruitments, appointments and evaluation processes;
  • Coordinating the drafting and reviews of key processes and procedures with the top management, internal audit and across services, and ensuring updates of major policies, procedures, tools, and relevant guidelines and templates;
  • Ensuring key procedural steps for which the rector is responsible, and advising on all steps of recruitment and evaluation processes; and
  • Drafting information material for management, employees, and external parties, and organising and delivering targeted information sessions.

What we expect from you…

  • Master's degree or equivalent by work experience; PhD is an asset;
  • Several years experience working on themes related to institutional strategy/governance or HR strategy;
  • Fluency in English and French (in written and oral) are mandatory. Good understanding of German and/or Luxembourgish is a plus;
