We believe each person has his or her own set of aspirations, goals, strengths and dreams. Dungarvin hires people to help others achieve their fullest potential and to maximize their quality of life. Come and join our team to experience a rewarding position with a national provider of services to people with developmental disabilities for nearly 40 years.

In California, Dungarvin serves people with developmental disabilities in several adult day programs that are licensed by the State of California's Department of Social Services. The people we serve are referred to us by the regional centers, which are nonprofit private corporations that contract with the State of California's Department of Developmental Services to provide or coordinate services and supports for people with developmental disabilities.

The Administrative Assistant will be a critical support to the management team members by performing administrative duties, including typing and editing correspondence and managing assigned projects. He/she must be responsive and interact professionally with the Dungarvin team, the people we serve, stakeholders, regulatory agencies and the general public.

This position is a limited driving position, which is defined as one that requires an employee to drive a motor vehicle as a part of his/her Dungarvin work, but the position does not require, or allow, the employee to drive motor vehicles owned or leased by Dungarvin, or to transport persons served in any motor vehicle, including the employee's own vehicle.

This position is based in Hayward, California with intermittent travel to other Dungarvin locations within California. The Administrative Assistant's schedule is typically 8:30am-5pm, Monday through Friday, with occasional adjustments based upon the needs of the management team and meeting administrative deadlines.


  • Must have a sincere desire to support people who serve individuals with developmental disabilities, such as intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, autism and epilepsy. We expect all team members to embrace and adhere to the mission of respecting and responding to the choices of people in need of supports.
  • Must have good decision-making and communication skills, and be responsible, mature and flexible.
