Strategic Support Specialists
The purpose of this position is to support the National Deaf Center’s mission of sharing networks, resources, and strategies for improving continuing education and training for deaf people. The Strategic Support Specialist role provides multi-level support to schools, organizations and agencies (education, vocational rehabilitation, local communities, etc) to address challenges deaf people may experience in the transition period from high school to continued education or employment. In this role, the team member will provide customized consultation, targeted outreach and training, and program improvement planning support to strengthen collaboration and implementation of services to increase postsecondary outcomes for deaf people.
The ideal candidate has experience working in a combination of one or more of the following settings: national, state, local, agencies and/or higher education entities serving deaf people. The day-to-day work involves engaging with consumers, building and maintaining relationships with entities, developing and delivering training, facilitating cross agency connections, and contributing to development and documentation of intensive support services provided by NDC. NDC will be hiring two Strategic Support Specialists – one with expertise working in postsecondary settings (e.g., student affairs, academic advising, administration, or disability services), and the second with expertise in career development (e.g., vocational rehabilitation, job coaching, transition, or career services).
This role is part of a highly collaborative team to support technical assistance activities created and delivered by NDC. An ideal candidate will be:
- person-centered in their interactions and their work,
- willing to take initiative and work autonomously,
- flexible in their ability to work in a dynamic team and collective organization,
- accountable for their work and ready to support others,
- strong in communication skills and be able to manage multiple assignments.
This is a 40h/week, full time position with the University of Texas, with all the benefits commensurate with the position. This will primarily be a remote position, with the occasional travel as well as periodic work visits to the Center office in Austin.
