Our terms of employment

Sanquin CLA

The collective labour agreement sets out agreements about for instance your salary, working hours, holiday and leave, travel allowance and pension.

Sanquin offers attractive employment conditions, and it is possible to customize them according to your personal wishes and circumstances. For example, you can have the holiday allowance paid out monthly or continue saving it up.
