More about working at VSL

Metrology is part of the fabric of our daily lives – whether we are filling up fuel in our cars, following GPS directions or looking at our watches. With approximately 100 employees, VSL works daily to make measurements increasingly accurate and reliable and to support the Dutch economy through research and development.

As a leading knowledge institute on measurement and calibration, VSL provides services to governments as well as national and international companies. We operate at the interface of science and commercial markets, or research and the global application of specialised knowledge.

VSL offers the opportunity for personal and professional development. Our culture is one of self-directed and driven people with a great sense of responsibility and passion for the profession.

Our people

Our success comes from attracting driven and innovative people who share our core values. We are proud to be an internationally recognised institute that practises exceptional science. We strive to value and encourage our employees at every level and in every area of our work. Together we support each other to grow, learn and have fun in what we do.

Although we work in Dutch, a good command of English in this international working environment is indispensable. VSL does an increasing amount of consultancy and advisory work, which requires a proactive and customer-oriented mindset. In addition, we almost always work as a team.

Terms of employment
In addition to our exceptional working environment with professional colleagues, we have attractive terms of employment. They include a competitive salary and full 13th month. But we also emphasise a healthy work-life balance and provide opportunities for hybrid work.
