Relay Outreach and Communication Technology Specialist

Position Title: Communication Technology and Relay New Hampshire Outreach Specialist.

Position Type: Full-Time

The goal of Relay New Hampshire is to provide accessible telecommunications services for people who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, DeafBlind and the people who have Speech Disabilities.

NDHHS also partners with two other programs to provide assistive technology to the NH DHH community; iCanConnect, which provides equipment and training to Deafblind NH residents who meet income and disability eligibility criteria, and ATinNH, which allows people to demo or borrow equipment to try it out before deciding if they would like to purchase it.

The Specialist will be responsible for educating people about Relay New Hampshire telecommunications services.   The Specialist will effectively position these services as must-have technology for those who struggle to hear and/or speak over the phone.  This is accomplished by giving presentations, demonstrations, workshops and hosting the Relay New Hampshire booth at various events as well as providing one-on-one training sessions with customers and businesses either in-person or using virtual technology such as Zoom video meetings. 

The Specialist will also be responsible for educating iCanConnect consumers on technology available through the program, as well as helping to install tech and provide training to consumers on how to use it.

The Specialist will maintain NDHHS’s assistive technology library and report demos, loans, and donations through the ATinNH database.
