Job Description

About Our Organization:

Established in 1994, East Bay Innovations (EBI) is a nonprofit human services organization that supports people with developmental disabilities, such as intellectual disabilities, autism, and cerebral palsy. Our person centered services support people to live in their own homes, make choices about how they live, work in jobs of their choosing, and enjoy being part of their communities. We seek to further the human rights and empowerment of people with disabilities, and hire people who care about social justice and want to make a difference in the lives of others.

About the Position:

EBI’s Supported Employment Services has openings for Project SEARCH Job Coaches in Alameda County. These are full-time positions providing supports to individuals with developmental disabilities during their internship programs within either the Downtown Oakland offices of the County of Alameda or the Claremont Club & Spa in Berkeley. 

Other geographical and program areas of support are dependent upon staffing needs, based upon intern support needs, job coaching needs of individuals now employed, or vacation or sick leave coverage. The schedule is usually 8:30am to 4:30pm, but there may be occasional support needs in the evening or during weekends.

We're passionate about raising the bar of employment options and opportunities and seek a person who shares this passion and can provide effective on-the-job support to individuals with autism, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, and other developmental disabilities to ensure success. This job is a good way to gain experience in the non-profit sector, social work, human services or case management. We seek people who want to make a difference in the lives of others and are both gifted teachers and teachable themselves.

Tasks:

  • Provide work training and support in a variety of employment settings, including: professional office environments, hospitality, and other employment settings as assigned
  • Become familiar with the job tasks of each employment setting on caseload and effectively communicate the requirements of those tasks with clients, supporting them to complete each task with confidence
  • Develop teaching methods that match each client’s unique learning style, supporting them to be successful in their employment in a way that best suits their individual needs
  • Create and manage your own schedule each week, ensuring effective client support

Skills and Requirements:

  • Must have valid California driver's license, be willing to drive own car (we do offer mileage reimbursement) and carry auto insurance
  • Ability to meet the requirements of the employers we work with, including dress code, health clearances, and background checks
  • Must be able to work effectively as part of a team as well as independently
  • Have basic computer skills and an ability to learn computer programs
  • Have excellent customer service skills
  • Experience working with individuals with disabilities, previous job coaching experience, experience performing administrative tasks, and knowledge of task analysis are all a plus, but not required

Work Schedule:

This is a full-time position. The schedule is usually Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm. Occasional evenings or weekends may be required.

Benefits:

Employee benefits include (but are not limited to):

  • Medical coverage
  • Dental coverage
  • Vision coverage
  • Flexible Spending Account
  • Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account
