  • Draft and refine core program documents, including program administration guides and technical assistance resources.
  • Meet outreach goals by collaborating on the development of program communications and collateral and engaging a wide range of stakeholders, including other government agencies, community-based organizations, local and regional workforce organizations, industry associations, secondary and higher education institutions, and employers.
  • Uphold program integrity through continuous quality improvement and consistent attention to detail when reviewing complex contracts, invoices, and supporting documents. 
  • Contribute effectively to cross-functional and collaborative efforts.
