Job Coach

Location: New York, NY

Department: Employment

Type: Part Time

Min. Experience: Student (High School)

Job Path supports people with developmental disabilities as they make choices about their lives and play valued roles in their communities. Job Path encourages people to explore what they want out of life and to chart their own journeys. Whether it’s finding a job, making a contribution in a volunteer role, establishing a home, or being part of the community, the goal is to assist the person to lead a full and active life.

At Job Path, we use a Customized Employment approach which entails getting to know the job seeker first and then using this knowledge to target employers based on the person’s interests, needs and skills. The aim is not to fit an individual into an already existing job description or opening. Instead, we work with employers to identify their needs and create or carve out a job that works for both the business and the job seeker.

Job Path is seeking applicants for the Job Coach position in our employment programs.  The individualized supports we provide are integral to the job retention of the participants in our program.  Job Coaches must be reliable and punctual; in order for the people we support to be successful in their jobs. Applicants must be energetic, responsible, and creative.   The Job Coach must be proactive, seeking out ways for a person to grow on the job and by identifying issues before they jeopardize a person’s employment. The Job Coach will be responsible for communicating such information with their supervisors so that the team can work together to ensure the success of the people we support.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Encourage Participants to learn new skills to grow at their jobs
  • Work with employers to guarantee their satisfaction with Job Path services
  • Be flexible and available to provide support to employment program participants as needed. At times one might have to work on the weekends.
  • Maintain communication with one’s supervisor to ensure that vital information is shared in order to ensure the success of the people we support.
  • Write detailed case notes and submit documentation of all services provided for the month for billing purposes by assigned deadlines
  • Work with employer and individual to resolve any problems that may arise during work hours.
