Work Green: Green Office is Hiring!
Join our team!
Maastricht University Green Office is looking for new employees that are passionate about sustainability and would like to shape a green future for Maastricht University.
What do we do?
Green Office is a student-run university department and inhouse-consultancy that coordinates and initiates ecological, social and economic sustainability projects at Maastricht University. With an entrepreneurial spirit we aim to innovate the University in the field of sustainability by empowering students and staff members. Our projects are divided into the fields of Operations (energy, waste, procurement, water etc.), Community (creating awareness/initiating „green“ events), Education & Research and aim to establish Maastricht University amongst leading Universities in the field of sustainability.
What would you do?
