About City of Baltimore, Mayor’s Office of Employment Development:
The Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED) coordinates and directs workforce development initiatives responsive to the needs of Baltimore City employees and job seekers in order to enhance and promote the local economy. At MOED, we view our mission broadly to deliver economic justice to our city! To us, economic justice means creating an equitable workforce system for all residents – especially those who have been generationally and systemically disadvantaged – one that is responsive to their needs and ensures viable economic opportunities. Our vision is for every City resident to maximize his/her career potential and all employers have the human resources to grow and prosper – a workforce system that works.
This position is part of Baltimore City’s COVID-19 employment recovery strategy, which is funded through the American Rescue Plan Act. The Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED) is working with public and private partners to provide occupational training, apprenticeships, subsidized work, supportive services, transportation assistance, and small business subsidies to city residents and small businesses negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. We will prioritize unemployed and underemployed residents and particularly our most disadvantaged jobseekers, including returning citizens, opportunity youth, and public assistance recipients. These programs will increase access to opportunity, promote local job growth, support low-income households, benefit historically underinvested neighborhoods, and create wealth in communities of color. They will also help the city become cleaner, safer, and more welcoming.
The role of the Mobile Career Navigator’s (MCN) is to travel to community-based organizations and outreach events, representing the agency to offer onsite workforce services to residents. The MCN will establish partnerships with organizations and other stakeholders to deliver critical services. The MCN will provide a variety of supportive employment services designed to enhance participants' employability at various locations throughout Baltimore City. Services include a combination of the following activities: case management, counseling, and assessment, employability development planning, motivational and world of work workshops, job development and placement.
The MCN will have access to a city-owned vehicle to provide these services
