Screening of your profileYour application will be screened by the Hiring Manager or Recruiter on your professional background and expertise. Within two weeks we will inform you about the outcome.


Acquaintance interviewsIf there is a match, you will be invited for prescreening interviews focused on your cv and motivation. These interviews with either the Recruiter, the Hiring Manager or a Technical Expert can take up to an hour.


In depth interviewsIf the first screenings are successful, we will invite you for in-depth interviews with HR, Technical Experts, the Hiring Manager and the (Program) Director. We might ask you to give a presentation about a pre-defined case assignment, or about your work too.


The interview with HR is focused on your personality and getting to know you better. To prepare for this round you will be asked to fill in an online personality questionnaire. The other interviews zoom into your technical abilities and how that fits with the position. When applying for a management position you may have to pass an external assessment.


Make sure you are prepared: research our organization, our business, our technology and services. Just relax and be yourself. We're just as eager to meet you.


After this round we should be able to decide if you are the right candidate for the job. And we hope you'll know whether Holst Centre is the right company for you.


If you live abroad, we will arrange the in depth interviews via MS Teams first. If these interviews are successful, you will be invited to our office in Eindhoven for final face-to-face interviews.
