Direct Support Professional Job Postings

Direct Support Professional (DSP) Employment Connections Overview

The Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities (LCBDD) supports provider agencies in Licking County by offering to perform initial screenings of Direct Support Professional (DSP) applicants for employment eligibility.

This should not be construed as an application for employment at the LCBDD.  LCBDD’s role is limited to screening interested applicants for employment eligibility purposes on behalf of participating provider agencies.  Provider agencies will conduct interviews as they see fit to further evaluate applicant suitability for open positions.

Next Steps

The Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities will facilitate the completion of the Employment Eligibility Screening tool, Conviction Affidavit, Major Unusual Incident Database Check, Criminal Records Check, and Drug Screening.  If you are eligible for employment as a DSP based on these screenings, you will be asked to select the provider agency/agencies which have the open position(s) you wish to apply for.  LCBDD will provide you with agency information to include the agency’s website, brochures, etc.  LCBDD will not be able to advise you on which provider agency is the best fit for you.  It will be your responsibility to make this determination.  Your information and provider agency application(s) will be forwarded to the participating provider agency/agencies selected by you.  The provider agency/agencies will contact you if they wish to conduct an interview and will determine whether you are an appropriate fit for their organization.  If you are not eligible for employment based on LCBDD’s screening process, LCBDD will notify you that you’ve been determined ineligible at this time.

Questions

If you have any questions or concerns about this program, please feel free to contact LCBDD’s Provider Relations Department at (740) 349-6588.
