We seek like-minded people who can live our mission, embody our values and will contribute to the organization’s success.
Because Texas Health is a large organization, recruitment is focused on getting the right talent in the right place. Prospective employees can get our attention through employee referrals. We encourage our employees to recommend applicants who would fit our culture and bring excellence.
Prospective candidates will also get our attention by completing the online process in a timely manner, which includes our cultural assessment, detailed experience, education and other relevant information. They need to be responsive to calls and emails from the Texas Health recruitment team once they are identified as a potential candidate.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Health care is a hands-on, human business, where compassion, open communications and relationships are the foundation. We embrace that same approach to provide the best health care possible. Texas Health is a large organization and recruitment is focused on getting the right talent in the right place.
We continue to focus our hiring on candidates that have the skills and qualities to complement our organization’s 10-Year Strategic Focus, and who would embrace their role as part of reaching the summit of our “Transformation Mountain” roadmap.
Our workforce is either caring for patients and families or supporting those who provide direct care. Our recruitment efforts will continue to be focused on Direct Care Roles, such as clinical and support roles for nursing, allied health services, or non-nursing clinical positions, and support roles such as administration, finance, environmental service, quality, supply chain or food services.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Candidates can review our website to learn about our culture, mission and vision, and see open job opportunities to join the Texas Health family. Connecting with a current employee is another great avenue for candidates. Our employees are our best brand ambassadors and we rely on them to bring the right fit to Texas Health.
We also post openings on relevant organizations’ websites. We post jobs with Direct Employers, which provides an employment network that reaches a diverse national and international workforce.
Part of our recruitment success is how we promote and nurture our future employee pool.
