Defining Peer Support Worker Job Roles and Tasks

Defining Peer Support Worker Job Roles and Tasks Thumbnail

Well-crafted job descriptions are an essential part of the recruiting, hiring, and onboarding process. Developing the job description helps a team to clarify the specific needs of your program, ensuring that the position you are hiring fits the program design. Pre-hire, an effective job description lets candidates know exactly what the position they are applying for will entail. It also helps the hiring committee to create an effective interview process. Post-hire, the job description helps new hires to be clear on their roles and tasks, guides the delivery of services, and
promotes best practices in peer support work.

This tool will help you to:

  • Define what peer practice means for your organization.
  • Identify the specific competencies, core tasks and responsibilities for the peer support worker(s) in your program.
  • Consider some unique challenges in recruiting, hiring, and onboarding
    peer support workers.
