The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office is accepting pre-screen questionnaires for the position of MENTAL HEALTH ADVISOR. This position is assigned to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility and has direct inmate contact. The Mental Health Advisors are responsible for assessing and facilitating mental health services to individuals as well as group counseling. Starting pay is $22.20 – 29.42 per hour depending upon applicable mental health experience. The Sheriff’s Office offers a competitive benefit package including paid retirement, paid health insurance, personal time off program, and holiday pay. Pre-screen questionnaires must be submitted on or before the closing date of July 27, 2018.

Minimum Requirements :
  • Master’s Degree in Social Work, Psychology, or a discipline that prepares for clinical licensure.
  • Licensure as a Clinical Social Worker or Licensed Mental Health Counselor is desired.
  • Registration in the State of Florida as a Clinical Social Work Intern, or as a Mental Health Counselor Intern with relevant experience may be considered.
  • Two years’ experience in a forensic or correctional environment preferred.

All candidates must fully complete and submit a pre-screen questionnaire. The pre-screen questionnaire may be submitted via email to cmcinroe@seminolesheriff.org or by hand delivering to the Information Desk.

Each applicant must have a Background Investigation Waiver (included with the pre-screen questionnaire) notarized. Failure to include this notarized waiver with your pre-screen questionnaire will disqualify your application. Any costs associated to the completion of this form are the responsibility of the applicant. The Sheriff’s Office does not provide notary service for this form.

Successful applicants will be required to complete and submit an entire employment application, which will be provided to the applicant by Human Resources. The applicant will then submit to a thorough background investigation, which includes, but not limited to, past employment/education verification, driver license review, credit history, prior drug use history, arrest/conviction record, and computerized voice stress analysis (CVSA) testing. A certified examiner administers the CVSA with questions addressing illegal drug use and general questions of honesty and criminal history. Any dishonesty or deception on the pre-screen questionnaire or employment application will disqualify your application.

The background investigation process may take 3-6 months depending upon the complexity of the applicant’s background. Applicants selected for employment will be provided a conditional offer and required to submit to a medical examination with drug screening.

Candidates for employment must comply with the Body Ornamentation policy, which includes tattoos, brands, intentional body/tongue piercing (not including normal piercing of the earlobe for earrings) or mutilation and dental ornamentation. “Visible” is defined as body ornamentation that is visible on the arm below the sleeve of a short sleeve or golf-style shirt or above the collar of a short sleeve or golf-style shirt. Any visible body ornamentation must be disclosed at the time of application.

Applicants not selected for employment will receive notification from Human Resources, to include justification based on the following disqualifiers: negative background, failure to meet minimum qualifications as outlined in the specific job description, or any additional information discovered during the interview process. Applicants will be eligible to reapply with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office after one year from the date of notification.
