Employees at ISU all need to provide a Police Clearance Certificate regarding working in education or the Dutch equivalent, which is called VOG (Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag) upon employment. In the final stage of our recruitment process we do a reference check. We therefore ask future employees to provide us with professional references.
