Full Job Description

Our Employment Department is currently seeking a Job Coach to join our team.


A little about what we do:

Have you ever had a job that you’re excited to go to each day? That’s the kind of experience we strive to create for our clients and for each other. Job coaches support adults with disabilities in their jobs throughout the community, so that they can be successful and as independent as possible. That support is customized to each person and their specific needs and might include on-the-job training, problem-solving issues, or supervision for safety. We also support people in accessing their community through volunteerism or social activities, while modeling and teaching social skills, communication, making purchases, and other transferable skills. We build trust with our clients and our business partners, supporting our clients to build relationships with their coworkers and community members. We’re in the business of providing quality supports – to our clients and to each other.

What does this look like?

A job coach’s schedule is a mix of the routine and the novel… Your daily schedule will be a mix of supporting people in different businesses and activities or office time for documentation and trainings. You might visit a variety of job sites, such as a restaurant, medical office, manufacturing warehouse, college, or hardware store – and you’ll have opportunities to experience new things as new jobs come along. The ongoing pandemic has changed the face of our services, and we need creative thinkers as we stretch and grow to meet our clients’ needs for social interaction and meaningful engagement with the necessary safety precautions in place.

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! We provide all of the training you will need.


About us:

In our Employment Dept. we have a dedicated, passionate, and creative team. We care about each other, the people we support, and the work that we do. We’re here to learn from and with each other. We never stop growing, and we always strive to improve upon what we do. We give each other regular feedback in an honest, direct, and supportive manner. We also exercise a lot of autonomy in our roles, and this necessitates managing our time effectively and responsibly. We value a healthy work/life balance. Living Opps offers roughly three weeks of PTO per year.

Our vision is a community that embraces individuality and competently supports and empowers people. Our mission is to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live in the same neighborhoods, work for the same employers, and share in the same experiences to which we all aspire.
