CalVet announces recruitment effort for Redding, Fresno vet homes

The California Department of Veterans Affairs has begun recruiting to fill hundreds of positions at the Veterans Homes of California in Redding and Fresno.

Throughout 2013, CalVet will work to fill positions in nursing, medicine, pharmacy, mental health, social services, speech and physical therapy, dietetics and food service, sanitation and janitorial, plant operations, grounds keeping, security, accounting, human resources, medical billing, contracts, clerical, health care analysis, and IT management.

“Caring for elderly and disabled veterans at our beautiful state-of-the-art Veterans Homes of California isn’t a job, it’s a privilege,” said Robin Umberg, undersecretary, Veterans Homes of California. “These men and women who served our country have sacrificed so much. We’re looking for caring, compassionate, and talented staff to help ensure that the veterans in our Homes live the highest quality of life with dignity and honor.”

CalVet is currently scheduling the examinations necessary to create employment eligibility lists and is posting job announcement bulletins for open positions. To find current Veterans Homes and other CalVet job and examination announcements, go to www.calvet.ca.gov/AboutUs/Jobs/Default.aspx.

In January, CalVet will host recruitment fairs at the Redding and Fresno Homes. The fairs will offer information about positions available at each Home, the State of California testing and job application process, and the mandatory background check required for certain types of Homes employees. More information about these fairs will be made public as the events draw near.
