The Seattle Human Services Department (HSD) is developing a strategy to recruit a permanent director for the department’s Aging and Disability Services (ADS) division. The department’s hope is to have a candidate identified and on-site by August 2022. The timeline at right provides a high-level view of the path ahead.

As part of the hiring process, HSD was intentional in reaching out to community members to ask for their involvement in the hiring process. A survey earlier this month identified community voices who will help to shape this process. Community members, ADS staff, and members of the larger HSD family have been and will be involved in shaping the path forward:

  • Job description review
  • Job posting review
  • Identifying multi-cultural advertisement channels
  • Resume review
  • Interviews

Currently, HSD is seeking input on the Draft ADS Director Job Description. To comment on the job description, please use our SurveyMonkey feedback form (click here).
