Application Process & Information

  • Applicants are screened and successful ones are referred to managers within five days from the competition closing date
  • As a Unionized organization, we are legally obligated to consider our internal applicants first. In case there are no qualified internal applicants, we start reviewing the external applicant pool
  • Once names and resumes are referred to the hiring manager, it depends on the interviewing panel time and number of positions/applicants to complete the interviews.
  • Once the applicant is selected, all new hires will need to provide a valid criminal record check including a vulnerable sector search to People Services before starting employment. The criminal record check must have been issued within the last six months. A photocopy will not be accepted. To obtain a criminal record check, visit your local police or RCMP detachment. Individuals will need to provide a criminal record check at his/her own cost. For more information, read: Criminal Record Check - Information for Applicants and/or Criminal Record Check Frequently Asked Questions.
  • If you are already a Capital Health employee, you can sign in with your current Employee Self Service user name and password.
  • If you are a member of two unions, for example a nurse in the NSGEU and the NSNU, you will have two different ID numbers. Please make sure you apply using the appropriate ID Number. Applying with the wrong ID number may cause you to automatically be considered as an external candidate.
