Job vacancy management via Varbi

Radboud University works with the Varbi e-recruitment system, which provides vacancy holders, committee members and Human Resources (HR) with access to job vacancies and application data throughout the entire process.

The login details that you will need to use as a vacancy holder or committee member of Radboud University are your U-number and corresponding password

How can I gain access to the system?

  • Your HR contact person gives you access to the job vacancy.
  • If you wish to add committee members at a later date, the vacancy holder will send an email with their name (initials, first name and surname) to their HR contact person. They will add the committee members to the job vacancy.
  • Recruitment will provide external committee members with separate access via an E-number. Either the vacancy holder or an HR staff member will send an email to recruitment [at] (recruitment[at]ru[dot]nl).

Roles and rights

Depending on your role in the recruitment process, you will be granted specific permissions. Depending on your authorisation, you can view the posted job description, request publication, view and assess candidates. Inviting candidates is done by the vacancy holder or HR. 

Confirming a rejection or placing a candidate on hold is done through a status update by the vacancy holder and HR in Varbi. Recruitment then handles the email for rejection or placement on hold to the candidates. Committee members can only view and assess candidates. Here you can find an overview of the roles and responsibilities regarding the recruitment system.
