Entry Description

KOKOMO, INDIANA (Jan. 11. 2013)—The Indiana Department of Child Services will host an employment open house in Howard County on Jan. 17 to recruit qualified social work professionals in the central Indiana area.  The open house is the second of many the state agency will host throughout Indiana in the coming months to hire 120 new case managers and 75 case management supervisors to combat growing caseloads of child abuse and neglect across the state.


“We’ve added hundreds of case management staff in the past eight years, and with our caseloads growing, we need to add even more qualified professionals to our team,” said DCS Director John Ryan.  “We need qualified professionals with a heart for children and families in crisis.”  DCS currently employs approximately 1,700 case management staff.  These employees work directly with children and families that come into the DCS system.


Qualified case managers need, at minimum, a bachelor’s degree in a social science discipline.  “And a dedicated mindset to serving the public,” said Ryan.  The starting salary for a DCS family case manager is $35,776, which reflects a six percent increase recently approved to align with private sector starting salaries in social work.


Interested candidates should pre-register for this event at and apply at the State of Indiana Job Bank  Search Job ID 581439.  Candidates should also bring a copy of their resume to the job fair.  Interviews will be conducted on site with qualified applicants.


The employment open house will be held at the Howard County DCS office, 217 E. Southway Blvd. in Kokomo from 10 am to 2 pm on Jan. 17, 2013.
