Job description

Your vision of the future of the education of young professionals, together with your leadership qualities!

The focus of Hotel Management School Maastricht (HMSM) is the next step in hospitality. We strongly believe that individual responsibility and personal attention are essential to success, both in our programme and the hospitality industry. We are a value driven organisation whose core values are passion, professionalism, connection, courage and original. We offer a small-scale and intensive educational programme and therefore invest strongly in building and maintaining our academic and professional community of students, lecturers, support staff and alumni.

In the last eighteen months of the bachelor programme students can specialize in one of the tracks (specialisations): Hotel Management, Foodservice or Horizons in Hospitality.

Our team of the track programme (4th year) is looking for you: an inspiring and motivating people manager, with excellent coaching and communication skills, who is passionate about facilitating and challenging colleagues to perform at a high level and who has great affinity with the HR-component within the management task. You have a vision on education and can combine the strategic demands of HMSM, the industries, the Teaching Hotel and Zuyd University of Applied Science.

You are a member of the management team, i.e. you bear a joint responsibility for HMSM’s strategic and policy choices and for the manner in which Zuyd strategies are to be implemented at HMSM. You will have a selected portfolio or projects as extra responsibilities. As a team manager you will have lots of internal and external contacts. You represent the school and the management team at (international) congresses and boards. We communicate in both English and Dutch. You are accountable to the Director.

Be part of an ambitious future-proof school and participate to the change in educating the future generation, integrating crucial themes such as sustainability, technology/AI and well-being in our curriculum.

Change requires an organization that stands behind you and values your expertise. One that pays attention to what moves you and the way you want to develop.

You will find that organisation at HMSM. That’s why you will soon feel at home here.

We prefer
