The City of Pasadena’s Public Health Department is seeking a Nutrition Aide or Senior Nutrition Aide to serve the community through the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program. This position provides nutrition education and assistance to qualifying participants. The Nutrition Aide or Senior Nutrition Aide interviews and/or assesses women, infants, and children to determine eligibility and assess nutritional status, conducts individual and/or group education and breastfeeding support, provides referrals, and performs client outreach as well as performs a variety of related duties as assigned by the Supervisor. This is a full-time, limited term, grant funded position.

The ideal candidate will possess strong communication skills and initiative, in addition to a WIC Nutrition Assistant (WNA) certificate.

Appointment will be made at the Nutrition Aide or Senior Nutrition Aide level depending on experience and qualifications. Senior Nutrition Aide is distinguished from Nutrition Aide in that incumbents in the former class are already trained and up to date on WIC policies and processes, have prior WIC Nutrition Assistant (WNA) experience, and currently possess a WNA certificate.

Nutrition Aides may be eligible for reclassification into the Senior Nutrition Aide classification upon successful completion of a one year probationary period and after obtaining a WNA certificate. Pasadena WIC will provide necessary WNA certification training to those hired into the Nutrition Aide classification as part of onboarding.

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/POSITION
The City of Pasadena has had its own Public Health Department for over 125 years. Many Public Health positions are funded through external grants with various time durations. We have been fortunate to sustain most of our positions over many years through success and growth and we have many opportunities for our employees. Therefore, though this position is “limited term, grant funded” this does not necessarily mean that the position is likely to be discontinued or lost in the near future. We are excited about serving our community and we hope you are too. Come join our team and grow with us!
