Aalborg University employees are the key to the success of the university, and for this reason we are working continuously to create an attractive research and work environment in which a high level of professional competence and expertise goes hand in hand with staff welfare, commitment and job satisfaction.
A young, outward oriented, innovative University
As an AAU employee you will experience a work day full of interesting and challenging tasks of a highly diverse character. You will be in close contact with cutting-edge research and encounter Denmark’s university and research policies in practice. Diversity is a precondition for innovation, and therefore you will be part of an international environment in which many academic colleagues will come from abroad, and English will be used as a natural communication tool in many contexts.
See the movie below and learn more about how we seek to translate our values into practice.
Get close to the latest research and become a part of an international environment
As a knowledge intensive enterprise, we wish to attract the broadest professional competences. If you are committed and wish to make a difference, the university will provide good opportunities for creating a career and achieving results in your job, whether you are employed in an academic or a technical-administrative position.
Career options at Aalborg University
It is essential for AAU that you develop your personal and professional competences. Once every year you will attend a staff appraisal interview. With your superior, you will discuss new development targets, which will support the university’s overall targets and strategy as well as your own work related development needs and wishes.
Active skills and career development
[Active skills and career development at Aalborg University] With more than 1,000 technical and administrative staff, AAU represents a broad professional scope which enables us to offer active competence and career options to our staff. The university offers current internal courses which contribute to enhancing the quality and development of administrative tasks and processes. In addition, the university has a number of networks where staff can meet across the organisation and discuss work-related issues or gain new inspiration from professional input.
Opportunities for internal rotation
Every year a number of staff change jobs internally at AAU, and we consider it a great strength that our employees wish to continue their careers at the university and utilise their professional competences and knowledge about internal processes, methods and working procedures across the organisation.
