Tof Thissen

General Director

Tof Thissen has a long career within the legislature of our state. Tof was a member of the First Chamber and party leader of Groenlinks. Nowadays Tof holds the position of Director at one of the most prominent policy-implementing organizations in the Netherlands: the UWV WERKbedrijf.


UWV WERKbedrijf is one of the most prominent policy-implementing organizations in the Netherlands. The division WERKbedrijf handles employment mediation and reintegration. They do this by bringing supply and demand together. Primarily their focus is on jobseekers who are at a great distance from the labour market and on employers who want to hire these jobseekers. In addition, they actively seek collaboration with labour market partners such as municipalities, employers and temporary employment agencies.


Tof will specifically discuss the implementation of personal services within the UWV WERKbedrijf. With the aim: recognizable and demonstrably better services at all 35 branches in the country. A critical program, with high social relevance.
