Services and support
University of Groningen services and support
Dual Career Support
The Dual Career Support service is offered by the University of Groningen in order to assist partners or spouses of new academic staff with finding employment, an internship, voluntary work or study opportunities.
Dual Career Support does not guarantee results, since the chances of finding a job depend on individual characteristics and the local job market. We organize meetings in which we help you acquire information about the local job market and effective ways to approach it, and expand your network. You can make use of the Dual Career Support service for two years.
