Our Application and Hiring Process

Everything is done online, from viewing jobs to completing employment-related forms before beginning your new position. When you apply for a job with us, please check your email regularly. We will send you email notifications about the status of your application and to let you know when an action is required of you.

How to view jobs and submit an application

1. Create Your Profile
The first step toward starting a career with us is to join our talent community by creating your personal profile. You will use this profile to apply for jobs, track the progress of your application, and make updates to your resume and cover letter. We suggest you add job search agents (automated job alerts) to your profile so you receive email notifications when jobs that may interest you become available.

2. Search Job Postings
If you set up job agents in your personal profile, you will be automatically sent job postings that match your job agent settings. However, you may also want to search job postings on the website. This gives you the best picture of all the opportunities available to you. You may see an interesting job type you hadn’t considered before!

You can view all currently available jobs, you can search by keyword or by location, or you can view jobs according to job category – clinical, clinical support and non-clinical.

3. Submit an Application
When you see a job that interests you and you meet the qualifications in the job posting, complete the online application form. We recommend that you attach a resume and cover letter to your application. Please note that you will not be able to apply for a job after the closing date in the job posting. Once your application has been submitted, you will receive an automated email notification confirming that your application has been received.

4. Reviewing Applications
Applications are collected and reviewed either by the hiring manager or the site Human Resources (HR) department, depending upon the site. Applicants that appear to be the best fit for the position are shortlisted for an interview. This can take days or a number of weeks.

You may be notified by email or phone to request an interview. All applicants will be notified by email once the position has been filled to let them know the competition has closed and they are no longer being considered for the position.

5. Conducting Interviews
You may be invited to meet with us so we can learn more about your experience, skills, and education. You will be asked questions about your qualifications, as well as questions on how you have or would manage certain situations. We want to hire the person who is the best fit for the job and the team.

If you have questions about the job, please bring them to your interview.

6. Checking References
If we feel you are the right fit for the position, we will contact you by email to request three references from current and/or previous jobs. (Other reference options are available for applicants who are unable to provide this.) We will contact your references to confirm information related to your employment history.

Being hired and getting ready

7. Receive Your Offer of Employment
When you are selected for a position, we will phone you with an offer of employment. If you accept this verbal offer, we will send you a written offer of employment to your candidate profile. (You will be notified of this by email.) Please read this over carefully and reply within 3 days. If you accept the terms and conditions, you can sign the offer electronically and return it to us by clicking on the I Accept button.

If this is your first position within the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, at the time you accept the job offer you will be asked to provide your Social Insurance Number (SIN) and date of birth. This information is required to set up your employee record and begin the paperwork that is part of the hiring process.

8. Complete Onboarding Tasks
After you accept your written offer of employment, you will be sent an email that links you to our New Employee Portal. Before you begin work with us, you will complete a number of forms online, provide required documentation for your position, and acknowledge your acceptance of certain key policies.

By doing this now, you will be able to focus on getting to know your new position and team in the first days of your new job.

Your new manager may also get in touch with you to line up other helpful “onboarding” tools such as orientation sessions, site tours, people to meet, etc. You may also be asked to complete additional forms specific to your new work site. As with the other steps along the way, expect to be contacted by email.
