Serving the health needs of residents of Cumberland and surrounding counties since 1956, Cape Fear Valley Health has grown to become one of the largest private employers in the region and North Carolina’s eighth largest health system. To continue its mission of delivering top-notch surgical and rehabilitation services, cancer treatment, cardiac care, and more, Cape Fear Valley Health has launched a massive hiring effort to build capacity and help train the next generation of caregivers.
With entry-level through management positions open in every department, Cape Fear Valley Health takes steps to ensure the hiring process is accessible and draws talent from across the community. Applicants are not just a number to the Cape Fear Valley Health recruitment team. Instead, job-seekers can expect convenient, frequent interview opportunities and the chance to receive a job offer on the spot at either a walk-in event or one of Cape Fear Valley Health’s regular hiring fairs.
Not only an engine of job opportunities and economic growth, Cape Fear Valley Health also has its eyes on the growing health needs of the multi-county region it serves. The health system’s leaders know that hospitals and clinics that are fully staffed are better equipped to deliver high-quality care to patients.
Walk In on Wednesday - and Walk Out with a Job
Job-seekers can walk in with their resume and walk out with a job at Cape Fear Valley’s weekly Walk-In Wednesday hiring events. No appointment is needed. Applicants are encouraged to arrive in professional attire with their resume in hand.
Before dropping in, candidates should take the time to search job opportunities on Cape Fear Valley Health’s career website to review available positions and find the job ID numbers and titles that are best suited to their interests and experience.
On Wednesdays, candidates have the opportunity to meet with human resources representatives who take the time to consult with applicants to find the right job match based on their skills, experience, and career aspirations. Department managers are on stand-by during Walk-In Wednesdays to hold meet-and-greets with candidates seeking to fill higher level positions.
Find a Job at the Mega-Hiring Event July 31
In addition to Walk-In Wednesdays, Cape Fear Valley has planned a mega-hiring event on Saturday, July 31 from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. at the HealthPlex (1930 Skibo Road, Fayetteville).
Reflecting the push to hire system-wide across all disciplines, representatives from all hospital sectors will be present to engage with applicants and hold on-the-spot interviews. Candidates with all levels of experience are invited to attend, from new graduates to those with years of experience. The event will feature food, beverages, music, giveaways, and the chance to walk away with a new job. At a recent hiring event, Cape Fear Valley Health representatives made a total of 40 job offers to applicants who turned out.
In addition to the July 31 mega-hiring fair at the HealthPlex and Walk-In Wednesdays, Cape Fear Valley Health will continue to hold regular hiring events at its medical center and affiliate locations. Check the career website (https://www.capefearvalley.com/careers) for upcoming events.
Advance Your Career with Scholarships and Tuition Assistance
The field of healthcare continues to grow and the supply of jobs often is greater than the number of qualified applicants. To address the need for more healthcare workers, Cape Fear Valley Health has launched a scholarship program to assist clinical staff with getting the licensure they need to advance their career.
The scholarships are available to everyone in the community, not just current Cape Fear Valley Health employees. Covering the full cost of short-term training programs at Fayetteville Technical Community College and other regional institutions, the funds help healthcare workers to attain licenses such as Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), and Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). Other scholarship opportunities are designed for those seeking surgical tech or pharmacy tech credentials.
Aside from creating a pipeline of qualified healthcare workers, the scholarships benefit the community by creating opportunities for job growth. Instead of being highly competitive, the scholarships are focused on growing talent and building capacity. Around 95 percent of applicants receive the award after meeting with the scholarship coordinator. While there is no requirement that scholarship recipients work for Cape Fear Valley Health after completing their program, the health system will be ready with job offers and career ladders to support workers’ continued advancement.
In addition to scholarships for the wider community, Cape Fear Valley Health offers tuition reimbursement programs for certain clinical staff who wish to pursue advanced licensure.
In conclusion, Cape Fear Valley Health is in full hiring mode as normal operations resume following the COVID-19 pandemic and demand for healthcare services continues to rise, driven in part by aging demographics. Applicants can expect competitive benefits and ongoing training opportunities when they join Cape Fear Valley Health in serving the varied health needs of Cumberland County and beyond.
