NC LAP Seeks Field Coordinator

The NC Lawyer Assistance Program (NC LAP), a program of the NC State Bar, provides confidential assistance to lawyers, judges, and law students who are dealing with substance use disorders and various mental health issues.

NC LAP is hiring a Field Coordinator to assist with overall program functioning and delivery of effective clinical services. The Field Coordinator will serve four primary program delivery support functions. Duties will include, but not be limited to, assisting the executive director and clinical staff in:

  1. Volunteer management including coordinating training; interventions; monitoring; reporting; and recruiting and organizing volunteers for specific initiatives and activities.
  2. Support for clinical services delivery to ensure continuity of care including managing the recovery contract process, enrollment, and timely reporting.
  3. Treatment placement including coordinating client admission and discharge planning in close conjunction with clinical team and staying apprised of the treatment center landscape.
  4. Overall program support including CLE, articles, and other areas as needed.

The ideal candidate will:

Possess and demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to establish client and volunteer rapport quickly;

Be well organized and able to continually “shift gears” and discern the crucial priority amid numerous competing priorities;

Be comfortable speaking at CLE events on broad-based, subject-matter-driven topics;

Possess and demonstrate excellent boundaries, including comfort with reporting issues of non-compliance or early indicators of client struggle/difficulty to clinical staff, and understand that LAP’s mission is to protect the public;

Defer to and take direction from clinical staff, even when a 12-step model might suggest a different course of action;

Be a NC licensed lawyer or have licensure in a mental health field;

Have experience with and intimate knowledge of recovery;

Work well with and thrive with the team of existing staff; and

Have a valid driver’s license, the ability to drive significant hours and distances, and reliable transportation.

Salary starts at $55,000. Initial deadline for application submission is January 31, 2020. The position is a traditional Monday-Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm work schedule and does not require “on-call” hours; however, support for special events may require additional hours. The position offers a comprehensive benefits package, mileage and expense reimbursement.
