1.    Our vision is "A future where ALS is not a death sentence, but a curable disease. A world where both cause and cure are known." You have a chance to be part of this rock-solid mission and make a difference in lives around the world. You will experience this difference and the recognition of your contribution on a regular basis.

2.    Our values can be seen everywhere. Honesty - we always communicate openly and transparently - is even embodied in our offices: we have a modern infrastructure offering both an open office and private spaces. This helps contribute to a family-like working atmosphere with respect for the individual where you immediately feel at home.

3.    Our location on the Vaartkom in Leuven is a real asset! In the immediate vicinity you will find a large car park, shops, bars and terraces, restaurants and access to public transport. From April 2025, by the way, your view will be transformed into a water garden!

4.    No two days are the same: as the only national ALS association in the country, we participate in a plethora of activities ranging from events to scientific research to product development in collaboration with industry. Even legislative amendment proposals are part of our remit. Because we do this with a small group, there are many opportunities for you to be part of projects and develop yourself. Or not, that choice can be discussed.
