The Position The Workforce Services Director (WSD) reports to the Director of EHSD and heads the largest bureau in the department. The WSD oversees a management team consisting of a Deputy Director and eight bureau managers leading a staff of approximately 780 employees located at four major district offices in Antioch, Hercules, Pleasant Hill, and Richmond, along with one satellite office in Brentwood. This bureau administers Medi-Cal, CalWORKs, and CalFresh programs along with related services for employment & training, childcare programs, transportation services, and various housing and homeless programs. The new WSD will be expected to optimize resource allocation by incorporating technology solutions, solid project management approaches, and data analysis to ensure the proper allocation of staffing levels most effectively. This will require exceptional leadership strengths in partnering with and collaborating with peer managers within EHSD, in engagement and interactions with a skilled and talented staff, and in providing vision, focus, and active communications to ensure the organization is in alignment moving forward. There are several key priorities for this bureau including the implementation of CalSAWS scheduled to go live in February 2023, the recruitment and retention of the workforce, resumption of medical redeterminations, and preparation to resume administration of the "normal" CalFresh program and other mandated service levels, post Covid. There is also significant need to refine, better understand, and potentially expand the current remote work model to ensure the agency maximize service delivery, accessibility, and responsiveness to constituents. Another area of focus relates to the advancement of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) directly into the service and delivery model for the bureau. This requires a solid grounding on root causes of poverty and role of service providers in administering and addressing constituent needs based on the experiences and outcomes of that population. To learn more about this opportunity please visit https://averyassoc.net/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/CCC-WSD-brochure.pdf Minimum Qualifications Education: Possession of a Bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with a major in business administration, public administration, social work, health, public health or a closely related field.
