Title:  Administrative Services Director III - Temporary

Application Deadline Date:  12/05/2022
Req ID:  33545
Department:  Human Services Agency
Location: 

Waterbury, VT, US

Position Type:  Temporary
Schedule Type:  Part-Time
Hourly Rate:  $38.30

Overview

The Health Care Workforce Recruitment and Retention program strives to bolster employment in Vermont’s health care sector. These employees' efforts were instrumental to the state’s strong performance during the public health emergency of the last three years. They remain vital to Vermonters' health, independence, and quality of life as the state emerges from the pandemic, however this job sector suffers from severe worker shortages. 

 

A primary initiative has been Health Care Workforce Recruitment and Retention Grants, which the Agency of Human Services (AHS) began awarding in June 2022. These grants allow qualifying employers to provide premium pay to several categories of health care and social service workers. The Agency awarded more than $30 million in grants in 2022. In 2023, additional categories of health care providers will be able to apply for grants. 

 

Eligible employers will have flexibility to distribute funds within the guardrails of program rules and must confirm that employees meet eligibility requirements under Premium Pay provisions. Employers who receive grants must also comply with reporting requirements which will ensure compliance and allow the State to assess the effectiveness of the program to retain workers and reduce vacancy rates. 
 
The program administrator will support the implementation and administration of this program and potentially additional health care workforce grant programs through July 31, 2023. Under the direction of AHS Central Office staff, the administrator will be responsible for coordinating the review of the applications, coordinating activities to issue grant awards and issue funding, and implementing a structure of subsequent reporting and monitoring. The administrator will work with program and finance staff from AHS and other state agencies as well as contractors and partner organizations.
Computer proficiency is necessary to interact with the program's Salesforce-based application and coordinate with other staff members in responding to applicant questions, reviewing applications, and ensuring payment and reporting. Strong written and verbal communication skills are also crucial. Clear external communications will be essential to helping Vermonters understand program requirements, while strong internal communication will ensure effective program operations. The ability to balance competing priorities, escalate risks, and request help when needed are desirable skills, as are teamwork and a passion of service to Vermonters. 
 
Work will be performed at the Agency of Human Services office in Waterbury, VT. Hybrid arrangements will also be considered.
