When you join NWHSU you're not simply doing a job, you're making a difference. You'll see passion for our mission, our work, and our future growth opportunities all around you. Culture is extremely important to us. We're a small enough organization that you'll get to know everyone, have a voice, make an impact, and feel the enthusiasm of everyone you work with. Yet we're large enough to offer exceptional benefits including a university contribution to our 403(b), generous PTO and a flexible environment. It's an ideal blend and a superb organization to expand your career.

  • Belonging is important to us - we all bring different backgrounds, perspectives, and value to the organization. And that makes us stronger.
  • We're committed and engaged. You'll see that in every meeting, every discussion and everything we do. It shows and we're proud of it.
  • We don't simply say we have a team environment - we live it. Your ideas and suggestions matter. We listen to one another and when something makes sense, we do it.
  • We've still got that entrepreneurial spirit, even though we've been around for 80+ years. And we like that.
  • We share information and have fun - through monthly Open Forum meetings with our senior leaders, to random employee celebration events throughout the year.
