Annual agreement

Are a member of the academic staff? Or a member of the non-academic staff and in salary scale 11 or above? Then you may choose to reach an annual agreement with your manager.

Apply for annual agreement

You can participate by checking the annual agreement option on the flexible working hours form.


The annual agreement is an agreement that you reach with your manager about which results you must achieve, which tasks you must perform and your availability. You are then free to organise your own time. Your leave hours are not registered and your leave balance is automatically zero at the end of the calendar year. This also means that you may not sell leave hours through the options model.

Saving for long-term leave

You may also choose to make an annual agreement in combination with the long-term savings options. The long-term savings option enables you to save leave by working extra hours, with a maximum of 72 hours annually, for long-term leave such as a sabbatical.

Below you will find an overview of the number of hours to be worked for a full-time contract (38 hours per week):

Annual agreement and illness
