Become a Lutheran Leader!

At Lutheran Jamestown, our work is not just a job: it is a call to action to care for our most vulnerable youth and   an aging community that needs us! As one of Chautauqua County’s leading essential employers, we have many job opportunities available. Some are entry level while others are built for long-term career goals.

We take great pride in recognizing one another for going above and beyond the call of duty – for doing that little something extra that makes coming to work feel special. We also care deeply for our campus which is meticulously cared for year-round and is a highlight of working, volunteering, and living here.

We’re proud to offer an on-site Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training program to anyone looking to get started in the healthcare field quickly… all you need to begin is a high school diploma or equivalent!

The demand for CNAs grows significantly by the day. Our CNAs are the backbone of our long-term care delivery team. Duties include taking vitals, bathing/dressing residents, transporting residents, passing meals, and helping provide a life of dignity and respect to those we care for.
