What is an Assistant House Manager?  Great question! 
An Assistant House Manager (AHM) oversees and works alongside Direct Support Professionals.  This residential based position is an entry level supervisory role that requires candidates to take their prior experience to the next level with the support and guidance of the House Manager.
Ok, so what will I actually be doing every day?
As an AHM you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of a residence.  This may include: creating staff schedules, bank reconciliations and personal finances.  Additionally, this position is responsible for troubleshooting issues as they arise, developing and maintaining positive relationships with your co-workers, and serving as a role model for the individuals and staff in the residence.  Days can be challenging and busy but also be filled with laughter, learning, and special moments!
What characteristics are you looking for in your AHM’s?
An Assistant House Manager needs to have a positive attitude and a proven track record of excellence to step into this leadership role.  An AHM must have excellent written and verbal communication skills as the position will juggle the needs of the staff and people we support simultaneously.  The AHM is a key component in the overall core residential team, so AHM’s have to be able to work well with other staff and departments.  In addition, AHM’s are responsible for the training and development for new staff members that join the team.  This includes, but is not limited to, the implementation of agency policies, procedures and initiatives. 
What certifications or skills do I need to be a AHM?
A AHM must have a high school diploma or GED, a clean/valid NYS Driver’s License and the ability to lift/push/pull 50lbs. Also, an AHM must have at least 1 year of prior experience working as a DSP (or equivalent).  Prior supervisory or leadership experience is preferred, but not required as we provide excellent, ongoing staff training and development experiences for all our staff to ensure you have the knowledge and skillset necessary to do your job well!
