How do I apply for a job at Grand River Hospital?

All applications must be submitted online through the "Apply to GRH" page.

Do you have any job openings that fit my qualifications? 

We encourage you to review current online job openings and apply to any of interest that matches your qualifications. 

How can I search for a job?

a) On the Grand River Hospital career portal, type in keywords or use other filters (e.g., category, location, etc.) to search for open positions that match your specific job interests.

b) Click Search to view your results.

Tips:

  • Typically, the keyword search will search for all of the words you enter, meaning that the keyword search "graphic designer" will return results where the job contains the words "graphic" AND "designer." Depending on the employer's configuration, you may be able to select between "all keywords" and "any keywords" to change this behaviour. (Note: the keyword search does not accept Boolean search terms at this time.)
  • Filters available may include keywords, location, category, and position type.
  • If you choose to use more than one filter, your results will meet all of the criteria you have selected.

b) On the "Job Listings" page, which displays jobs that match your search, scroll down to the "Job Search Agent Options" section. Then, name your search agent and click the Create Agent button.

How can I prevent a company’s emails from going to my spam/junk folder?

Many email providers have increasingly stringent spam filters that can trap legitimate emails. This often includes emails sent automatically, such as job application confirmations or company newsletters; it can also include emails sent to you personally, such as interview invitations.

You may need to adjust your spam filters.

Will I receive a confirmation email once I have completed my online application?

Yes, all applicants should receive a confirmation email once you have successfully submitted an application. This will be sent to the email address listed on your application.

Can I drop off my resume at the Human Resources office? 

Grand River Hospital's recruitment process is paperless as part of our 'Greening Health Care' initiative. We encourage all external applicants to apply online for any posted positions using the careers portal, as we no longer accept hand-delivered, mailed or emailed applications.

If you do not have a computer at home, please consider using a publicly accessed device such as a computer at your local public library.

Who should I address my cover letter to?

Please address your cover letter to Human Resources.

I would like to speak with the hiring manager or recruitment specialist directly.  Can you provide me with contact details?

If the skills and qualifications you identify in your online application meet the requirements of a GRH position, you will be contacted directly by GRH. If you are invited in for an interview, you will have the opportunity to speak directly with the hiring manager who will be able to answer any questions that you may have.

Where do I find pay scales for posted GRH jobs?

If you are offered a position after successfully applying for and interviewing with us, you will be able to discuss compensation details with the recruitment specialist.

Is Grand River Hospital involved in overseas recruitment?
