Coordinator, Telephone Reassurance Program (Part-time; Eagleville Office)
If you are energetic and eager to work with seniors, Family Services is looking for you to join our team.
We have a position available that requires a self-motivated individual who can also function effectively in a team environment. You will have an opportunity to work in a volunteer-based program designed to provide telephone support to homebound, isolated seniors in the greater Norristown and Pottstown areas.
The Coordinator of the Telephone Reassurance Program is a part-time position (21-25 hours/week) responsible for recruiting, training and supervising volunteers who will be making daily “safety-check” telephone calls to homebound seniors. The Coordinator will be part of a team of staff working in Project HEARTH. The Coordinator is also responsible for outreach and marketing this new program. Experience with MS Office and Google is required. A minimum of a bachelor’s degree in social work or related field is preferred. The hours of this position are flexible but are primarily daytime hours. Experience working with volunteers and seniors is a plus.
Applicants must possess a valid driver’s license, reliable transportation and auto insurance as these are necessary to meet the job requirements. Qualified candidates should e-mail their resume and cover letter to HR@fsmontco.org.
