Portret Natalja Macnack

Since 1996

Natalja Macnack: “In 1996, I arrived at Utrecht University via a job agency. Since then, the university has become my permanent employer. I started at the secretariat of the central Communication Department. We were on top of the news; an ideal way to get to know the university better from a helicopter view. I did not expect to stay here for so long. I always thought: how can people work for the same employer half their lives? Now I know from my own experience that big organisations like universities offer so many different positions and possibilities that you'll never need another employer ever again.”

Various positions

“What I like the most about working at Utrecht University is the diversity in positions and departments. The university has many fun and interesting areas: from internationalisation to education and communication. I also find the cultural area interesting. Think of Parnassos Cultural Centre, Studium Generale and the University Museum.

“Over the years a new position at another department has crossed my path every five years. Quite special. After the secretariat I worked at the International Office, the Board of Admissions and the Communication and Marketing Department of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance – among others. Because of all these positions, it does not feel as if I have been working here for over 20 years at all.”
