UNM Office for Community Health - Strategic Support Manager (Posted on 9/15/21)

The Office for Community Health (OCH) is a key resource to New Mexico’s communities under the Executive Vice President of Health Sciences. Its many programs offer a diverse set of resources linking community health needs with University resources in all mission areas—clinical services, education, research and health policy. Sample programs include Health Extension, Community Health Workers, Area Health Education Centers, Immunizations, Emerging Infections and Research and Evaluation. All address social determinants and inequity in our health and social service systems. All start with community needs driving our programs and most of our resources go out to communities to build local capacity.


OCH continues to expand at a rapid pace and expects to continue to grow, both in terms of number of staff and funding. OCH is pursuing many opportunities to impact the COVID-19 response while investing in the underlying social and economic disparities revealed by the pandemic. To keep pace with the expansion, OCH needs strong administrative leadership and support for its business operations. OCH is seeking an experienced strategic and process-minded leader to serve as a member of the OCH Executive Leadership Team and to oversee the operations and administrative functions for the OCH, including: human resources, finance, information technology, communications and project management.
The successful candidate will have experience scaling an organization, convening an executive management team, and developing a high performance culture among a diverse and talented group of individuals. The successful candidate must be an effective leader and a strategic thinker with a pragmatic approach to business planning, implementation and innovative problem solving to help the staff at OCH to deliver measurable, effective results that help make the mission of the OCH and vision of the UNM Health Sciences Center a reality. 
The successful candidate will also have substantial experience implementing strategies for institutional change, bolstering adaptive reserve, bridging administrative, college and programmatic silos and overcoming territorial and ego-driven barriers to change.  This position will promote a "flat" organization, a bottom-up approach, and servant leadership while supporting each OCH section's addressing of social determinants of health.
Duties will include leadership and strategizing, human resources, financial and program management, technology management, communication and organizational development.  This includes budget management and forecasting, ensuring programs/projects are on track to meet deliverable and timeline deadlines, managing the process for recruiting, hiring, onboarding, retention and performance management of the project teams and providing guidance, training, and tools for effective project management to individual program/project managers. 
Lastly, this position will assist OCH leadership and staff with establishing a values-based, high performance culture.
