Working at Northwestern – a Friendly and Supportive Environment
Why are we happy working here? We’ve got a few reasons.
We work toward something intrinsically valuable.
Northwestern’s mission drives all of us – professionally and personally. When you’re immersed in an environment surrounded by people who believe in natural health care, and who believe that it should be promoted in our healthcare system, it creates a positive energy for everyone who works here.
We have a great place to work.
Working amid the day-to-day rhythms of a non-profit, collegiate environment has proven to be a strong magnet for many of our employees. And because of the broad scope of Northwestern’s mission, the University has available a wide array of opportunities for prospective employees in the areas of teaching, clinical practice, administration, research and more.
We like working together.
Northwestern has many long-term employees and faculty members – who’ve worked here from 10 years to more than 30 years. That says a lot about the kind of workplace we provide. Our employees support each other professionally and they work well together. Our department heads are positive leaders who help their staff members grow.
We have opportunities for community service.
Northwestern believes that we owe something back to the community we live in. For example, every year we organize a weeklong Summer Science Academy for 9th to 12th graders so we can inspire and encourage them to pursue careers in science. We also offer paid time off to our employees on Service Day to provide community service together.
We receive generous benefits.
At Northwestern, we strive to provide eligible employees a competitive and generous benefits program that helps them meet their needs and those of their families. We believe a healthy and secure workforce is more likely to achieve its goals as well as the goals of the University.
Our benefits program includes:
- Health and dental insurance
- Life insurance
- Long-term disability insurance
- Employee assistance program
- Retirement plan
- Tuition assistance
- Pool and fitness center
- Discounted services and much more
Would you like to join us?
At Northwestern, we understand that it’s essential for our employees to be professionally challenged and rewarded, as well as personally satisfied. Our employees are the engine of our institution, so they have a profound effect on the quality of the natural health care education we provide our students, and our ability to advance the practice of natural health care itself.
If you want an environment where you will work hard, learn, grow and feel supported in a friendly environment, we invite you to apply for any of our open positions.
