JVS Hiring – Multiple Positions Working with People w/Disabilities

(JVS Human Services, March 23, 2020)

JVS Human Services, one of the largest human service agencies in metro Detroit, is launching a hiring blitz to secure 45 new employees for positions working with individuals with disabilities.

Twenty-five of these positions will be summer staff employed to work as job coaches for high school students with disabilities who have internships in the metro Detroit area; these positions could be suitable for college students interested in human services, social work, or psychology, or teachers off for the summer. Other new staff will be employed in in positions in Southfield and Detroit where they would be working with participants with disabilities in various skill-development, employment, and engagement programs.

The need for additional staff is due to more in-person programming restarting at the agency’s centers. Full time employees are eligible for a $500 bonus after 90 days employment, and summer job coaches are eligible for a $200 bonus, depending on reliability. Full time employees receive a competitive benefits package including medical and dental insurance. Starting pay begins at $12 an hour.

“If you have the heart for working with people who are on the path to employment and community inclusion, this is an outstanding opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives,” said Aubrey Macfarlane, Chief Operating Officer of JVS Human Services.

Preliminary interviews on Zoom will be held on Thursdays at 4 p.m. or 4.30 p.m. on March 25, April 1, April 8 and April 15. For the Zoom link, a detailed job description or to complete an application, go to www.jvshumanservices.org/DirectCare.
