Overview

Under direction, the Program Manager plans, organizes, and directs employment, eligibility, or social services programs and activities in a local public social services department or agency; and performs other duties as assigned. Some positions may have additional responsibility for administrative services units.

A Program Manager differs from a Social Services Program Manager in that the later plans, organizes, and directs programs and activities exclusively within Child Welfare Services and/or Adult Protective Services.

The Program Manager classification differs from the next higher level Deputy Director classification in that the latter typically has responsibility for multiple administrative and staff services work in areas such as personnel, administrative analysis, accounting, auditing, budgeting, or data processing; 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 Program Manager serves in a first-level managerial capacity.

SUPERVISION EXERCISED AND RECEIVED
