Come join the team now for a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of a monumental shift to facilitate positive change!

What you will be doing:
As the Grants Administrator 3 (GA 3) supervisor, you will lead the team through mentoring, collaboration, issuing grants that directly support communities throughout the state. In addition to supervising the unit and administering complex grants, you will help implement and develop departmental policies and procedures with an end goal to create efficiencies, eliminate redundant or unnecessary steps, and establish a unit with exceptional grant administration, staff collaboration, and concise processes.

Our organization, mission and culture:
The mission of the Department of Family and Community Services is to provide support, safety, and personal well-being for vulnerable Alaskans.

Work schedules are flexible as long as they fall within office hours.

The working environment you can expect:
The Grants office is located on the seventh floor of the State Office Building in downtown Juneau and is within walking distance of restaurants and grocery stores. The unit will relocate to the fifth floor of the Court Plaza Building, which will house the newly formed department, in the coming months.
