More than a blood bank

There’s much more going on behind the scenes at Sanquin than you might expect, including essential processes and the overarching support required to do our job properly. Legal issues, communication, facility management, procurement, finance, and HR are no small matter. Our call centre with its donor information line, administration, and departments such as Safety and Occupational Health and Safety and the Environment are also essential. These roles form a stable foundation that is crucial to the execution of our mission.

Employee development

At Sanquin, we are always moving forward. We work every day to modernise our organization and give our employees room to develop at the same pace. We achieve this in a number of ways, such as encouraging our employees to take initiative and offering growth opportunities in virtually every field of expertise. At Sanquin, it doesn't stop at applying for an interesting vacancy: that merely marks the beginning of a meaningful career.
