Change lives in your community!
Vadis is an innovative non-profit looking for an individual with drive and motivation to help others succeed. With a career at Vadis you will assist people with intellectual disabilities in finding jobs within their community. No experience is needed, just passion. Vadis will provide you with the training, tools, and technology to not only help clients determine employment goals, but how to work through barriers in obtaining employment as well as keeping a position once hired.
Job Specifics: Employment consultants play an important role in assisting people with disabilities in identifying jobs that match their skills and abilities as well as helping them with resume creation. As an Employment Consultant you will educate employers about the advantages of workforce diversity and encourage businesses to consider the benefits of hiring people with disabilities. Once you convince an employer to hire a candidate referred by Vadis, you go onto the job site to support the business and their new employee. You remain on the job site as long as needed and then make periodic check-in visits to provide consultation to assure job retention and career growth. You will work with multiple clients at various job sites so reliable transportation is a must.
We are looking for someone who enjoys networking, is self-motivated and firmly believes that our communities are strengthened when everyone contributes.
We have a state-wide reputation for providing progressive employment services for adults with disabilities. Be a part of a leading company with over 35 years of growth and contribution.
