This position has been reposted. If you applied to the previous posting, please submit a new application. * * * * * Help slow the spread of COVID-19 in your community. Contact Tracers are essential to the safe and successful reopening of Ohio's economy by protecting against community spread of COVID-19. Once a person has been diagnosed with the virus, our team of skilled Contact Tracers works quickly to identify and interview contacts via telephone call, notify them of possible exposure, and inform them of proper quarantine protocol. Contact Tracers also assess the contact's symptoms and possible risk factors, and provide the contact with information related to social distancing, symptom monitoring, testing, care, and other resources. Through swift tracing and information sharing, our Contact Tracers are actively slowing the spread of COVID-19 and helping Ohio heal from this unprecedented global pandemic. We are looking for customer-focused, tech-savvy, self-motivated candidates to assist in our state's response to the global pandemic. Strong, empathetic communication skills are essential to this role. Contact Tracers routinely engage with exposed individuals from various backgrounds and cultural identities who may be scared, confused, anxious, reluctant, or even irate. Sensitive, culturally competent communication and active listening are key; successful candidates will have a strong background working with difficult people and/or people with complex needs, with a demonstrated ability to build rapport and de-escalate tense conversations. In ition, as our Contact Tracers work with sensitive health-related information, maintaining confidentiality and protecting the privacy of Ohio citizens is of utmost importance. NOTE: Contact Tracers work remotely from home. Candidates will be expected to set up and maintain their home working environment, including initial setup of their workstation (e.g., setting up a computer, establishing internet connection). Contact Tracers must be comfortable toggling between multiple computer applications daily and entering data into databases accurately and efficiently. Candidates with strong computer literacy skills are more likely to be successful in this role. If you are interested in the opportunity to protect your community from further spread, today!

Normal working hours are generally 8:00AM to 5:00PM; however, some Contact Tracers opt to work evenings and weekends, as well as voluntary overtime opportunities as available. Candidates who can work at least 30 hours per week will receive priority in the hiring process over candidates with reduced availability. NOTE: This is a TEMPORARY position.
