New Jersey Citizen Action: Become a Fair Housing Tester
New Jersey Citizen Action, a HUD designated Fair Housing Agency, is hiring paid Fair Housing Testers to help make sure people are not being denied housing because of their race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability or familial status. We are hiring a diverse group of testers to investigate housing discrimination in Essex, Hudson, Union, Middlesex, Ocean and Monmouth counties.
Trained testers pose as renters or home buyers and visit housing providers to collect information and document their experiences to assist with regional monitoring and investigations.
Requirements for becoming a tester:
*Attention to detail and excellent writing skills
*Access to a reliable form of transportation
*Attend a four hour training and complete a paid practice test
*Submit to a NJ state criminal background check
Testers are paid a stipend and are reimbursed for mileage and tolls. Testers can work days, weekends and/or evenings.
