Job Description:

Job DescriptionStarting at $18/hr. PLUS a $1,000 sign on bonusWhat is this job all about? In this position, you will change lives. Your goal is to be an encourager and mentor to adults with developmental disabilities as they decide how they want to live their lives, spend their time, and develop their talents. The level of support varies from individual to individual, but the mission is the same: serve others so they can direct their own lives as independent, valued members of their community.Thats nice, but what will I actually be doing?As a Behavior Support Technician, you will provide training and supports to individuals served in dressing, bathing, personal hygiene, house cleaning, laundry, and other activities of daily living. Youll assist with the purchasing of groceries, train in food preparation, administer medications, and assist in the management of personal funds. Youll get to help implement personal plans (the story of the individual youre serving including their history, goals, and achievements). And youll contribute to the development and maintenance of a therapeutic environment (keeping their houses happy and cozy).What will I get out of it?This job doesnt feel like a job. It feels like spending time with people you care about, helping them move toward the life they want for themselves. It feels like making a difference every single shift, and going home at the end of the day knowing you made someones life better.Youll also get to work for a company that cares about your goals. The Arc of the Ozarks strives to help you develop as an individual through paid-trainings, internal promotions, and the constant support of supervisors who have been in your shoes. You will have a whole team around you to work with, learn from, and grow beside. And at the heart of it, you get to know that the world is a better place because of you.
