Employment Consultant

AtWork! is a nonprofit employment-services provider to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We believe in the transformative power of employment, and that people with disabilities belong in our communities and in our lives. Washington is an Employment First State, which is a movement to deliver meaningful employment, fair wages, and career advancement for people with disabilities.

We are seeking a full-time Employment Consultant to join our Employment Services team. Employment Consultants work directly with the people we serve and businesses in the community providing ongoing assessments. Working with a caseload of participants, Employment Consultants evaluate the skills and talents of individuals, then develop and coordinate opportunities with businesses in the local community. Successful employment is when both the individual served and the business’s needs match. Employment Consultants collaborate with a community network to train effective communication techniques, accommodations, and how to develop natural supports in the workplace.

Effective Employment Consultants maintain the greatest level of independence and enjoy an ever-changing environment. They communicate with their teams and other stakeholders appropriately. They evaluate the needs of the people served through timely assessment, communication, and observation, and modify their plans through consideration of the person’s response. Employment Consultants are also comfortable with diversity, compassionate, and exceptional listeners. Their attention to detail, self-confidence, and a good sense of humor is critical to success.
