Nordion operates around the world. Each of our locations offers unique natural backdrops in vibrant cities, giving our employees access to a variety of recreational and cultural activities. We invite you to peruse our current career opportunities. Simply search our opportunities database and apply for positions that match your experience and skills. And, by setting a Job Alert, you can receive email notification of jobs as they become available.


Nordion has received reports of communications from unauthorized persons fraudulently representing themselves as recruiters for Nordion and/or its parent company, Sotera Health (collectively, the “Company”). These communications are not authorized by the Company and are believed to be part of a phishing scam to solicit banking and other personal information from prospective candidates for hire.

Unauthorized emails and offer letters may appear legitimate and include the Nordion or Sotera Health name and logo, a job description, compensation and benefit details. Fraudulent email communications may be sent from a Gmail address and prospective candidates are eventually instructed to provide their banking and other personal information. Offers from Nordion are only legitimate once you have gone through a formal process and had personal, face-to-face contact with authorized Nordion recruiting personnel or our management team.


We conduct business in a manner that recognizes and respects our most important asset – our employees.

We are committed to providing employees with support programs that strengthen their abilities. Diversity is integral to the success of our business.

As a valued member of the Nordion team, you can expect:

  • Positive policies and practices fostering a dynamic organizational culture conducive to employee engagement, such as floating holidays to use for personal time, religious holidays and cultural events
  • Health and wellness initiatives and programs highlighting items such as mental health and healthy living
  • Employee training and learning sessions on such topics as youth mental health, respect in the workplace
  • Activities focused on giving back to the community, such as paid volunteer days
