Competition is tough as Northern Health looks to fill positions in Prince Rupert and across Northern British Columbia

Prince Rupert Regional Hospital is just one of a number of hospitals
where Northern Health is trying to fill a growing list of vacancies
in the health care delivery system of the North

If you're considering a career in the Health care services, there's no better time to finish off your education and join the work force with the Job listings from Northern Health testifying as to the volume of jobs available and offering up an indication as to some of the difficulty that the Health authority is having in filling many of them.

With competition in the health services field growing and larger markets offering many of the social and recreational opportunities that young professionals are seeking, some of the rural areas of the Northern Health Service region are finding positions are remaining available for growing periods of time.

And that is making for staffing shortages that are being felt from Haida Gwaii in the far west, to the Peace Country of the North east along with many communities in between.

Earlier this month the Prince George Citizen highlighted some of the challenges facing Northern health.

The newspaper article cited a report which noted that there are 197 positions currently going unfilled, included in that number are 80 career positions that Northern Health has classified as difficult to fill.

According to the Northern Health website the Northwest Help Wanted listings are as follows:

Terrace  -- 32 positions available
Kitimat -- 17 positions available
Hazelton -- 20 postions available
Smithers -- 18 positions available
Houston -- 10 positions available
Haida Gwaii (all locations) -- 24 positions available 

In Prince George, which is the heart of the Northern Health system, the job listings offer 70 career opportunities at the moment.

As for Prince Rupert, there are currently 28 positions listed as available with Northern Health in the region, offering a range of positions with local facilities (click list below to expand or use the NH search engine here).

The hiring call an open ended one with the positions available until they are filled.
