Position description

Berkeley Social Welfare invites applications for Field Consultant positions. These generalist positions are expected to provide flexible coverage as needed across multiple age groups, and span micro to micro social work practice strategies. Applicants are considered for positions as needs arise; the existence of this pool does not guarantee that a position is available.

Primary duties will include reviewing and adhering to school policies and practices regarding field education, monitoring the educational placement matches for 20-60 MSW students to ensure student competency development. This will involve early detection of teaching and learning problems, careful assessment, and resolution strategies for agency field instructors and/or students. In addition, duties will include setting and maintaining professional standards for MSW students, leadership of the first-year and second year integrated field seminars, and related coaching, mentorship, and professional development activities. Administrative duties will include: reviewing, signing, and completing all required paperwork in a timely manner, working with other field faculty, senate faculty, and administrative staff, participating in admission reviews, participating in field faculty meetings, and meeting with the Director of Field Education. These positions are not expected to involve academic teaching or committee work beyond admissions reviews.

The School of Social Welfare is committed to creating an inclusive environment, one that is supportive of all individuals, regardless of background, and to nurturing and developing that talent. We are committed to building an excellent and diverse faculty, staff, and student body, and we welcome applicants whose experiences have prepared them to contribute to this commitment.

These positions are covered by a collective bargaining agreement and represented by the UC-AFT.
