The Employment Specialist will manage and carry out employment services by meeting with a small caseload of clients “where they are” and supporting them in obtaining and maintaining employment consistent with their goals.

This position starts at $15.00 per hour with paid time off and a flexible, supportive work environment. To apply, send resume and cover letter to Maria Paschke, WBD Executive Director, at mariap@elywbd.org or (612) 466-0821.
