The Oregon Department of Justice (DOJ) Division of Child Support administers the Oregon Child Support Program, the federal Title IV-D program in the state. The mission of the Oregon Child Support Program is supporting parents to support children, and the program is an important part of Oregon’s social services system.

In this position, you will work in partnership with the Business Services and Technical Services Chief in providing leadership development and support to subordinate managers within the teams. These teams work endlessly to ensure that the objectives and goals of the program are met. You will be responsible to ensure work is completed in accordance with the program and division’s mission, federal and state laws, and agency policy. You will play a leadership role in the statewide Oregon Child Support Program, representing the program and DCS at community and civic intergovernmental activities. You will be responsible to work in partnership with the Business and Technical Services Chief for the direction and guidance of the Business and Technical Services teams, specifically the senior managers. We are seeking your leadership skills to know the appropriate avenues to provide coaching and training to ensure the program directive is clear to direct reports. In this role, you will also be responsible for the operational compliance with policies and procedures per state and federal laws and guidelines. An essential function in this role is maintaining communication and positive partnership with the other areas in the program so that teams can work together to provide families the services and support they need. This is not limited to teams within the DOJ Division of Child Support and Oregon Child Support Program but with other programs in the communities and State of Oregon—and other states as well.

Our successful candidate must uphold a global perspective of the program’s mission, values, and goals in favor of developing short- and long-term objectives for the program for positive results and performance. Not only will you be responsible for the oversight of the Business and Technical Services work areas, but you will serve as an integral part of the DOJ Division of Child Support Executive Team. This includes budget development and evaluation of workload, legal, labor, policy, or procedural issues that affect the program’s ability to meet requirements and goals. This role plays a major part in the communication and implementation of policy changes, technology enhancements, and program improvements.

A member of the Executive Team, the Business and Technical Services Deputy Chief is a strong, experienced leader who possesses compassion, the ability to empower others, and is driven by the program’s mission. If this is you, we want to hear from you!
