Application Deadline Date:  02/06/2023
Req ID:  46154

Waterbury, VT, US

Position Type:  Limited Service
Schedule Type:  Full Time
Hourly Rate:  $29.79


The Vermont Department of Mental Health (DMH) resides under the Agency of Human Services (AHS) and has the same critical mission in mind: to improve the conditions and well-being of Vermonters and protect those who cannot protect themselves. The individuals and families that the Department of Mental Health (DMH) supports in Vermont's communities want the same things we all want; safe homes, close friends, loving relationships, good health, and something meaningful to do each day. Our job is to help them succeed. 


The team at DMH is always striving to maintain the current level of services available in the system of care for Vermonters, while continuing to seek opportunities that expand access to mental health services. The goal is to improve the consumer experience by increasing availability, reducing wait times, and reducing barriers to allow Vermonters and their families to receive the most appropriate level of care when and where they need it.  


Do your values align with our mission and vision? Are you a detail-oriented project manager that thrives on multitasking and competing deadlines? As a Business Project Manager at DMH you will be focused on tracking various project implementations and engage with a variety of stakeholders. You would support grants and contracts that will provide for and procure mental health services in Vermont. You will play and active role in scheduling, coordination, tracking, and task management for several Medicaid-funded projects. You do not need to be a subject matter expert for mental health services to be effective in this role. You need to be an effective facilitator with a knack for consensus building while providing clear communication both verbally and in writing.  


The Business Project Manager will need to be adept with the Microsoft suite of products including Outlook, Word, Excel, OneDrive, and Teams. Virtual collaboration is a key element of this work because you will need to make sure information is shared effectively even when not in the same room. DMH operates on a hybrid work schedule that can be flexible to promote work-life balance and allow for teleworking several days a week.
