Start an Asheville Job Search

What are the top Asheville employment industries?

Asheville job openings are available – and in high numbers if you know where to perform your job search.

The top industries for employment include: healthcare, government, education, hospitality, grocery and manufacturing.

Healthcare Jobs in Asheville

The employer with the most Asheville medical jobs listed, no surprise, is also Asheville’s largest employer: Mission Health System. A growing regional healthcare powerhouse Mission Health System has grown to over seven hospitals in surrounding counties; including, the flagship Mission Hospital and over 12,000 employees.

Pardee UNC Health Care is a not-for-profit health care system that was founded in 1953 and is managed by UNC Health Care. It is the first hospital in the Carolinas to be accredited with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO 9001:2008) for quality health care standards.

Healthcare jobs in Asheville are very prevalent due to the growing population – much of which is driven by retirees. An aging population is great for the healthcare business and Asheville is no exception.

Hospitality and Food Service Jobs in Asheville

One of the areas experiencing strong growth is in the hotel jobs sector. Hospitality and food service positions are in strong demand as a rebounding economy has helped to drive local tourism, a growing population and a labor pool in flux as many already employed in the industry are moving around to find the most competitive compensation opportunities. Leading employers in this space include the Biltmore Estate and The Omni Grove Park Inn.

IT Jobs in Asheville

Like most cities IT jobs are available; however, unlike your larger metro markets Asheville’s IT jobs are not as plentiful due to the relatively narrow number of industries and large employers in the market. Mission Health System has a 250+ IT department to handle it’s IT needs. Beyond the handful of IT positions at the city and hospitality industry – the bulk of information technology jobs are offered by small entrepreneurial companies. Upstarts like Digital Chalk and RISC Networks show much promise in the niche along with hundreds of other much smaller companies.

The market boasts several hosting companies and a few IT / infrastructure support companies….and thousands of web developers / web master positions. Without the likes of a major teleco, Facebook, Google, or Amazon type of firm – the Asheville IT job search is not an easy one.

Government Jobs in Asheville

The City of Asheville offers the most government jobs in Asheville of any government employer. Consistently displaying 30-60 job listings at any given time, the city outperforms Buncombe and Hendersonville government jobs postings by 4-to-1.

Many people prefer the structure, stability and retirement programs offered through government employment opportunities.

Manufacture and Production Jobs in Asheville

There is a deep history in manufacturing and production jobs in Asheville. With employers like Flint Group, Eaton, Borg Warner and Linamar leading the way, manufacturing is a key employment sector in the greater Asheville area.

There is VERY strong demand in the areas of assembly, warehouse and production departments within local manufacture operations. Many of these positions are listed under a category search of Manufacturing / Production jobs.
