Our Client, a multibillion-dollar LTC/HH (Long Term Care/Home Health) insurer, is seeking motivated Social Workers to work as Initial Reviewers in their Benefits Certification Dept. to hire on a temp-to-hire basis. Our Client will begin interviewing candidates very soon for an upcoming training class of six social workers. The next training class is scheduled to start on May, 2019. Due to the complexity of the intense training during the first 2 to 3 months, no time off should be scheduled during this period. This is an hourly position that pays $27/hr. for LCSWs and $25.50/hr. for LSWs during the estimated 8 + month long training and ramping up period, but then converts to an exempt position upon conversion to our client’s payroll. The client is located in the Illinois Center Complex close to Wacker & Michigan and the hours are 8:00am to 4:30 pm M-F.
