Why hire a student?

There are several reasons to take advantage of work-study benefits.

Reduce workload of permanent employees
Working students offer the solution for activities where flexible staff is required. On the other hand, we also see more and more organizations employing TU/e students for a number of fixed hours and/or half-days per week in order to relieve and reduce the workload of permanent employees.

EuFlex Technificent takes a lot of work off your hands
We recruit the candidates and take care of the contract and payroll administration, while you remain in control of the process: you retain the freedom to choose which applicants to hire.

Long-term investment
Due to the increasing tightness in the labor market, and in particular for technical staff, recruitment and selection will be done differently and creatively. Forward-looking HR managers see working students as the new opportunity to manage the strategic inflow of technical talent themselves.

As an employer in this field, you need to work in a different way. Simply posting a vacancy will not work. In our recruitment we focus on young upcoming talent. Talents which you can train internally of talents which directly provide added value. However, these talents do not just come, as an employer you have to invest.

Highly skilled staff

Our database consists of more than 6000 different TU/e students. All from different programs and departments. TU/e students have knowledge of the latest technological developments and are used to working in multidisciplinary teams. At Eindhoven University of Technology, Challenged Based Learning is applied, in short this means that the theoretical knowledge is directly put into practice. You can read more about Challenged Based Learning here.

Build up a flexible workforce

Our current customers regularly tell us that TU/e students can be employed quickly. A huge advantage if you ask us, because we often hear that the workload within companies is too high, which automatically makes it too busy to train someone.

Quick to adapt to their job

Students are flexible. This means that you can scale up during busy times and down during less busy times. This way you ensure that the workload of your current staff does not become too high. Decide for yourself whether you want to give the student fixed days and hours or whether this should vary per week.

How does hiring a student work?

EuFlex Technificent delivers custom work! In consultation with you, we map out which student best suits your assignment and your organization. This allows us to tailor our recruitment process entirely to your needs.

Our students work for a wide range of companies, both technical and non-technical.

TU/e students are also placed in side jobs where a technical background, at first sight, seems to be less necessary. In practice, the ‘fresh view’ of a TU/e student sometimes leads to both student and company wanting to grow together. In a position that suits the education of the student and helps the company further in a ‘technical’ sense.

What work is a student suitable for?

Our students work for a wide range of companies, both technical and non-technical. Think of filling (temporary) vacancies, assisting within project teams or performing technical (laboratory) work. But also Market Research, IT & Web Development, Data & Process analyses and (Graphic) Design are common student activities. TU/e students are used to working in multidisciplinary project teams. We increasingly see clients outsourcing full or partial projects to students. EuFlex Technifcent also offers you the opportunity to put together your own multidisciplinary team. After all, new, young fresh eyes not only offer you the chance to think out of the box, but also give you access to new insight, knowledge and techniques.

Is it necessary to give students a new assignment?

Certainly not. Students are also suitable to be used to carry out permanent work. TU/e students, proven by our other clients, are very quick to settle in and are also eager to get a taste of precisely that atmosphere at your company and thus also experience what a potential future could look like. This way they not only help your company, but you help them too.

Can you also hire a students temporarily?

Yes, even for seasonal work, temporary projects or if you are short of staff in general, a student worker is ideal. Companies that have a temporary shortage of personnel can use a work student to bridge the period. In this way there is no sudden increase in the workload of other colleagues, but tasks can be taken up by one or more work students. But work students can also be used for temporary projects. Think of market research, an assignment for a customer where specific knowledge is needed or researching a (technical) issue.

You and EuFlex.
