Currently the chances of qualified Senior Managers in Health, Education, Social and Community Services finding employment are considered to be fair in the local area. Fair opportunity exists because senior management positions require specialized skills and industry experience limiting the supply of qualified workers. Also, there are a number of employers locally when considering all fields covered by this group. Recruitment of external candidates is usually done on a provincial or national level due to the limited supply of workers with the education, skills and experience to fill these positions. Internal promotions of middle managers can be a source for filling available openings. In Nova Scotia, school boards and health authorities are centralized to cover regions of the province reducing local opportunity. However, openings may occur when existing managers leave the area, retire or otherwise vacate their positions. The aging population in the region should continue to create demand for health services, in particular, which could result in opportunities for senior managers in the health care field.
In addition to employment opportunities locally, opportunities may exist in other areas of the province or in other regions of the country. People who are able to work elsewhere may want to research opportunities for this occupation in other labour markets within Nova Scotia and across the country. The future employment outlook for Senior Managers in Health, Education, Social and Community Services in Nova Scotia is expected to be fair over the next 5 years.
