Position Information

Under direction, the Social Services Program Manager plans, organizes, and directs the operations and functions of a Child Welfare Services program and/or Adult Protective Services program in a local public social services department or agency; and performs related duties as assigned. Some positions may have additional responsibility for administrative services units.

Use of the Social Services Program Manager classification is an option for counties that have a classification structure that articulates a distinguishable difference in the complexity of assignments and consequence of error in Child Welfare Services or Adult Protective Services programs compared to other functional areas such as Eligibility and Employment Services. 

The Social Services Program Manager classification differs from the next higher level Deputy Director classification in that the latter typically has responsibility for multiple eligibility, employment, or social service functions in a department or for a single program where two or more subordinate levels of supervision exist. In these departments, the Social Services Program Manager serves in a first-level managerial capacity.

Incumbents in the Social Services Program Manager classification receive supervision from a Deputy Director, Director, or other higher-level management classification. A Social Services Program Manager provides direct supervision to supervisors in the assigned program areas, and to other staff as assigned.


Minimum Qualifications

One (1) year of full-time experience performing duties comparable to a Social Worker Supervisor I or II;

A Master's Degree in Social Work or a Master's Degree from a two year counseling program.

While the above requirements outline the minimum qualifications, applicants may be further evaluated for qualifications beyond those listed. Those applicants that are determined to be most highly qualified will be invited to participate in the next step of the selection process.
