Maastricht University’s Faculty of Science and Engineering seeks a recruiter who helps prospective students discover our master’s programmes in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Job description

Choosing a degree can be both life changing and difficult. In today’s information culture, students are bombarded with facts, figures, rankings and other narratives. The sky is the literal limit: worldwide searches for the perfect programme are not uncommon. How can our master’s programmes achieve and maintain visibility in the midst of this? How can we best show prospective students the quality of our programmes? And, importantly, how do we ensure that the programme and the student are indeed a good match? As master student recruiter, you will lay out an evidence-based strategy to help our faculty answer these questions.

You will be embedded in campus Venlo’s central marketing & communications team, where you will work alongside (and coordinate the efforts of) your bachelor recruitment colleague to implement and execute your plans. You realize that your responsibility does not end with the admission procedure, but that you are working to help students make an honest and informed decision about their future.

Your tasks vary on a day-to-day basis, and include the following:

  • On-/offline studentrecruitment for both master’s programmes
