Q. I am interested in working at VIHA. What do I do next?
A. Once Human Resources receives your resume, you will be sent further program information. We may also contact you to book a prescreen conversation that will enable us to understand a little bit about your relocation needs, preferred clinical environment and desired location within the Health Authority. This is also your opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the living and working experience in BC.
Q. What happens after I have been prescreened by Human Resources?
A. Your application and all supporting documents will be reviewed by a VIHA Human Resources Business Partner. Based on your preferred clinical environment and desired living location on Vancouver Island, a decision will be made to refer your application to the most appropriate Program Manager for consideration. At this point you will be notified by a Human Resources Business Partner of the referral and can expect a representative from the individual health care institution to contact you.
Q. How long does the recruitment process take?
A. Each candidate is uniquely different and for this reason the amount of time required varies. Local, National and International applicants require different levels of support. During your prescreen conversation, a VIHA Human Resources Business Partner will be able to provide you with an approximate timeframe.
Q. What level of support are you able to provide employment-seeking spouses that relocate with newly hired health professions to Vancouver Island?
A. VIHA is happy to provide tips, networking opportunities, or popular employment websites to candidates and their spouses. Additionally, spouses working in healthcare and healthcare related fields may wish to forward their resumes for consideration of opportunities within VIHA.
Q. Will health benefits cover my family?
A. Depending on the status of the position you are hired into, a comprehensive employer-paid benefit package may provide coverage for you and eligible dependents.
