A residence service coordinator can be found in assisted living facilities, schools, and many other places. In all of these places, the coordinator has one main responsibility: to create a community in which everyone gets along and things run smoothly. As a residence service coordinator, one can expect the following responsibilities on a day to day basis: making sure that the staff is properly trained, overseeing services that are provided to those living there, making sure that services and staffing remain within the budget costs, making sure that everything is running with respect to company policies, and bringing the highest quality of care to all of the residents of the program.
As a resident service coordinator, one can expect a typical 9 to 5 job, and a lot of walking in the facility may be required. In some cases, the coordinators must live onsite. The coordinator is usually the top rank of the facility and is responsible for most, or even all, of the staff members.
To be considered as a resident service coordinator, one must have at least a high school diploma, but a bachelor's is preferred. One must also have several years of experience in supervising a group of people, great attention to detail, interpersonal skills, great communication skills, basic computer skills, and the ability to solve problems on the fly. If you are placed in an assisted living center, experience as a nurse is preferred and recommended.
