Next steps

Once your application has been received, we will review it, contact your references and determine if your interests align with our needs. You will be contacted if there is a match or if there is any potential for a future role that aligns with your areas of interest. If we cannot identify a match at this time, we will keep your file active for six months. We will contact you within that time if other related openings become available.

If we contact you by phone, we will further discuss requirements, your availability and our current openings. The next step is a face-to-face interview to talk in more detail. If we have mutually agreed to move forward, we must complete a background check. We ask you to meet additional requirements (free of charge and with our assistance) such as two tuberculosis skin tests, seasonal flu shot and possible immunizations if you are not up to date (for patient contact areas).

We also ask you to complete a written orientation including topics such as Spectrum Health’s mission/vision/values, personal and building safety, infection control, confidentiality laws, etc. We ask you to sign and agree to a commitment statement and Spectrum Health’s Code of Excellence.

Once these items are completed satisfactorily, our team refers you to a specific location with a shift on a specific day and time. Before starting, we will give you parking instructions, free meal instructions, a volunteer badge and vest. A fellow volunteer or employee from that specific department will arrange your orientation and welcome you to your new volunteer role.
