Application Process

  1. Interested applicants will be asked to submit a resume, answer a series of short-answer questions and provide permission to complete a background check. 

  2. Candidates resumes will be reviewed and candidates will be asked to complete a limited criminal background check form* and a phone interview.

  3. Candidates will be notified when all steps have been completed and will be added to a hiring pool. Using candidate interest forms, staff will match qualified candidates with a respective CLS organization looking to hire an eLearning Facilitator. Being added to the hiring pool does not guarantee that a Facilitator will be hired by a site.

  4. If hired, facilitators will complete additional steps with the organization they are matched with/hired by including but not limited to a “National Criminal History Check”. 

 

*NOTE: Fees associated with a National Criminal History Check will be reimbursed by The Mind Trust and will not be the applicant’s responsibility.
