As the state and nation struggle with unemployment due to coronavirus-related shutdowns, an “essential” South Jersey business is looking to hire, it announced recently.
Bancroft, the Cherry Hill-based provider of support and services for people with autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and brain injuries, is looking to fill more than 400 full- and part-time permanent positions in the New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware region.
Bancroft noted that its services and employees are working 24/7 through the COVID-19 outbreak, as essential health care services.
“These are not temporary positions,” Director of Talent Acquisition Jonathan Lutz said in a prepared statement. “We are looking for caring, compassionate candidates who have found themselves out of work and are ready to explore a new career where they can truly make an impact.”
Most positions are in direct support, providing one-on-one care to adults and children who live in the nonprofit’s residential programs, the company said. A variety of shifts are available and benefits include tuition reimbursement. Experience in not required, as Bancroft provides extensive training.
“Jobs in health care and human services are among the fastest-growing professions in the country—but they’re also among the most secure and sustainabile,” Lutz said. “As essential employees, they remain in high demand, especially in times of crisis.”
Interviews and screenings will be conducted by telephone and virtually. Click here for more.
