Interview and Decision Staff

Migration is about people. People who ask for protection, want to study here or offer their skills. Others want to work in the Netherlands, live here with their family or acquire Dutch citizenship. Migration cases like these require well-considered decisions. Would you like a meaningful role in deciding these cases?

This means a job as interview and decision staff

As an interview and decision staff member you process applications by people from all across the world. You can delve into all kinds of countries and cultures and you will learn more about people than you ever could have imagined. Working at the IND also means you have a job with great impact. Your decisions are important, not only for the applicants but also for society as a whole. You are there for people and for the security of our country. That is not always simple. Sometimes you see happy people and sometimes very emotional people. This job is anything but standard – but never boring either, which enables you to continue developing yourself. The latter is something we at the IND consider very important.

There are so many possibilities to be of consequence. I haven’t been bored for a single day in all those years. This is because you notice changes in the world almost immediately at the IND. And you have to do something about them. This keeps the work interesting. If I had to carry out the same routine every day, I would quickly be tired of it.

Recruitment rounds in 2022

At the IND we are always looking for professional, kind and energetic Interview and Decision staff members. That is why we have a job application round every month in 2022 during which you can apply.  Then you will hear within a week what your next step in the procedure will be and the very same month whether you can start a new challenge! So do not wait too long if you are interested because things could go quickly. If candidates are suitable, we engage them immediately.

Each job application round consists of the following steps: assessment of your written application, an assessment in which we test your analytic ability and writing skills and a personal interview. Finally, there is the offer in which we discuss the terms and conditions of employment with you.

Job as an Interview and Decision staff member, including training

What happens if you get the job? Then the IND will offer you a job that starts with a training and supervision process of 9 to 12 months. In that period, you will learn everything necessary to develop into an independent interview and decision staff member, and you will have increasingly more of your own responsibility. You can also continue to learn and develop yourself after this period. We gladly support you with this because we hope for a good and long-term working relationship with each other.
