“There is a need for everything from cooks to service workers, RCWs to LPNs,” says Doris Taylor, who is
responsible for recruiting staff for all departments of the QEH, Hillsborough Hospital, and Palliative Care. “It’s a constant intake. We often interview for these positions on a monthly or bimonthly basis. Online applications are always preferred, but paper applications are welcome as well.”
Some areas of employment include:
- Medical Laboratory Technicians
- Diagnostic Imaging
- Occupational Therapists
- Addictions Workers
- Administrative Support
- Clerical Support
- Nursing (Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses and Resident Care Workers)
- Service Workers (environmental, laundry, dietary)
- • Maintenance Workers (Carpenters, Power Engineers, Plumbers, Electricians)
Doris says the jobs most difficult to recruit for are specialty nursing units, and there has been an increase in the number of postings that have been open to the public over the past year.
