Clinical Director

This new position is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic and growing team.

We will consider a half-time or full-time commitment, depending on the fit of the candidate. 

The Director has four primary areas of responsibility. The first is the supervision of clinical staff and advisement with advocacy staff related to the delivery of participant support services. The second role is the delivery of direct clinical services to RIA participants by carrying a small individual case load of between 1-3 survivors of commercial exploitation. The third role involves managing an interdisciplinary training program for clinical graduate student interns, especially in coordination with the broader clinical team and the RIA Peer Mentors/Fellows. In this part of the role, the Director is responsible for interviewing, onboarding, training, supervising and evaluating clinical interns, and also for creating a holding environment for the interns as they develop working relationships to the broader staff team. The fourth role provides leadership and oversight in the area of program evaluation as RIA works to understand more deeply the people it serves and how to most effectively support them and their families.
