Butler County Educational Service Center adding more than 50 new jobs

The Journal News | Eric Schwartzberg | July 15, 2018

The Butler County Educational Service Center plans to add dozens of new jobs this summer.

Butler County ESC, 400 N. Erie Blvd., Hamilton, was established more than 100 years ago and serves as the central educational and service resource for schools, government agencies, families, children and the community.

The center, which employs more than 600 people, plans to hire more than 50 people by the end of summer as it prepares for the 2018-2019 school year, according to Butler County ESC spokesman Adam Marcum.

“Many of our employees are spread throughout Butler, Hamilton and Preble counties as they serve their respective children, families and districts,” Marcum said.

These roles include teachers, counselors, IT professionals, success liaisons, intervention specialists, social workers, therapists and more, he said.

While many positions require specific credentials, a college degree is not always necessary and many entry-level positions are available, according to Marcum.

BCESC partners with individual groups to tailor services that meet the needs of children and families, allowing them to achieve successful programming and results while decreasing administrative costs, Marcum said.

“Our mission of “Partners in Shaping Lives” starts and ends with children, but also involves working with the entire family structure to improve outcomes for all involved,” he said.

We asked Marcum about the challenges facing Butler County ESC when it comes to hiring and how job seekers can avoid potential roadblocks in the hiring process. Here’s what he had to say:

Q: What’s the biggest challenge facing Butler County ESC and others in the industry and how is it uniquely positioned to address that challenge?

A: “Our challenge is finding people who have a desire to help others. Our employees go above and beyond the call of duty for the children and families they serve each and every day. Finding the right person to fill that role, while not always easy, can be extremely rewarding for everyone involved."

“We are fortunate to have a dedicated staff that finds purpose in the work they do. This is part of what makes the ESC so unique, and the reason why our employees ranked Butler County ESC the most meaningful place to work of all Cincinnati’s 2018 Top Workplaces.”

Q: What’s the most prevalent roadblock you encounter when it comes to hiring and what can jobseekers do to remedy that situation?

A: “It is often most difficult to find employees that are the right fit for the job in which they are applying. Each position has a unique credential or focus, each working with children, families or school districts in a different way. The best thing a jobseeker can do is provide a thorough resume detailing their experiences and be intentional in choosing a role that’s best for them.”

Q: Some job seekers are concerned about the limits of advancement within an organization. To what degree can Butler County ESC employees advance from entry-level roles to be promoted to greater positions within the company?

A: “Butler County ESC supports employee growth in many different ways, such as tuition assistance, student loan forgiveness and in-house leadership/professional development. It is very common for employees to “climb the ladder” in their time here, in fact, half of our CORE Leadership Team began their careers in entry-level positions with the ESC.”
