Careers with CBDHA

If you are visiting our web pages, you are considering the Cape Breton District Health Authority as a possible employer. You might be interested in moving right away, or you may be exploring options for the future. Whichever time line you are on, making a career change, especially when it involves moving yourself and your family, is a big decision. Every individual who is thinking about this will have questions relevant to your background.

In our Careers Web Page, we have tried to address the questions that you might have. We know that you will be asking about things like:

  • the job opportunities available
  • future career prospects
  • what your salary will be
  • what benefits are available, etc.

However, you will also be considering the personal impact such a move will have on you and your family:

  • Where will you live?
  • What do houses cost?
  • Will your spouse or partner be able to find a job?
  • What schools will your children attend?
  • Are there places of worship in the denomination of your choice?

We hope that by exploring the web pages, you will find the answers to your questions. If you can't find the information you are looking for, please feel free to contact me. If I can't answer your question right away, I will either get the information you need or get you connected to the person in our organization who is able to answer your questions!
