This is an "applicant pool" posting. It does not signify that vacancies actually exist at this time. The purpose of this posting is to develop a pool of qualified applicants, should vacancies become available.
The MMSD does not post specific vacancies externally. When a vacancy has not been filled through the transfer of a current MMSD Nurses Assistant, we go directly to the external pool to review external applicants who are active in the pool.
