About Opportunities with RPG Therapeutics LLC

It is extremely challenging trying to find the right talented people, with the passion for, and sufficient experience with role-playing games (RPGs), Therapeutic Recreation, Music Therapy, and the other critical skill sets, personalities, and gaming style we require. So we are open to any candidates that fit the bill, and then working out solutions to have that talent become part of our Team Network.

RPG Therapeutics began in 2004 with pure research through the The RPG Research Project - http://www.rpgresearch.com. RPG Therapeutics LLC was created as a for-profit business, that also provides significant charity services, in 2014. Our HQ is in Spokane, Washington, but we also offer some remote opportunities, and we are growing a fleet of mobile facilities to provide coverage across the country.

Note that, we have a bit of a chicken-and-the-egg challenge, since there are so few candidates likely to have the required skill set and certifications, and the training curve is steep. The volunteer positions are all immediately available so that we can train people to meet the rigorous standards based on Therapeutic Recreation methodologies.

We use an extensive array of assessment tools to establish base lines, and track progression of clients. If your skill set is reasonably close to the minimum requirements, and you start training and volunteering this summer, you should be able to acquire your certification(s) and become billable sometime next year. The clients are significantly backlogged, waiting for us, as we try to find and train enough qualified people to meet the overwhelming demand. We have a very high professional bar established, and being further refined, with extensive documentation, use of assessment tools, etc. This high professional standard requires prospective candidates to receive extensive training to ensure consistency and compliance with optimal standards.

Since we usually work with many protected populations, all volunteers and paid staff that will work with any clients, must pass a background check typical of healthcare and education workers.

Though our HQ and primary training facilities are based in Spokane, WA, we travel quite a bit providing advocacy, charity, healthcare, education, training for professionals, and other professional services all over the greater Northwest region, and even globally through some remote/Internet services. We hope to eventually provide regular in-person services throughout North America, maybe even globally (if possible), through a network of trained and certified professionals, mobile facilities fleet, and then some remote/Internet-based service offerings as a fall-back.

If you believe you, or someone you know, matches the qualifications of the positions here: http://www.rpgtherapeutics.com/contact/employment then please send your resume including both your non-RPG professional experience, and your RPG experience, with a cover letter illustrating your understanding of we are doing as a company, and how your think you would be a good fit for the team.

Please only serious applications meeting the above criteria and the requirements of the position for which you are applying.
