Job Opportunity

Part-time job at the Self-Advocacy Association: NCI Survey

The Self-Advocacy Association of NYS is looking to hire someone part-time to help us administer a consumer survey to people using OMRDD services. The work will involve arranging survey interviews, and supporting a self-advocate surveyor in conducting the surveys. The populations surveyed will include: Day Hab participants, Family Supported clients, Family Care clients, & Self-Determination/Consolidated supports participants, as well as family and staff members of people with developmental disabilities.

The surveys are a part of the National Core Indicators (NCI) project, whose purpose is to identify and measure core indicators of performance of state developmental disabilities service systems. The NCI project is vital in helping determine where NYS (and various regions within NYS) stands in its delivery of services and supports to people with developmental disabilities as compared to other states. Currently, around 30 states participate in NCI. 

Specifically we are looking to hire someone:

- With experience in the developmental disability field, such as a parent, sibling, or staff

- Willing to work part-time (10-15 hours/wk)

- Who is comfortable working with and supporting self-advocate surveyors

- Who is able to travel around the Bronx and Manhattan

- Who is able to work during daytime hours during the week

- Who is available to work until the end of May 2010

Note: Please do not apply if you currently have a full-time day job!

The job will last either until the end of May 2010, or potentially earlier if the surveys are completed ahead of deadline. Pay is $13/hour and travel will be reimbursed.

If you are interested in this position, please email your resume, a cover letter, and the days and hours you are available to work during the week to Rachel Hayward at
