Application Deadline: September 28, 2018

The Department of Emergency Services seeks a highly motivated, innovative individual to join our team as the Special Operations Manager. The ideal candidate has a progressive mindset, collaborates well, and is able to creatively solve problems. This position will plan, direct, manage, and oversee activities related to Opioid Intervention Team coordination, emergency services training and education, and the development of a mobile integrated health program. Dorchester County seeks an action-oriented self-starter, who is capable of prioritizing initiatives, setting clear goals and expectations, and providing reports on outcomes. The ideal candidate uses logic, data, and metrics to inform and support decisions. Balancing the needs of the County, the department, and the community, the Special Operations Manager builds strong business cases and reasonable arguments in order to influence decisions.

Candidates must possess a valid Driver’s License and current Maryland Paramedic license.  High School diploma or equivalent is required; advanced degrees in the area of emergency medical services administration, education, emergency management, or related fields are preferred. Experience in a collaborative environment, and specific experience in mobile integrated health and/or opioid intervention team operations is a plus. A criminal background and driver’s license checks will be conducted on all applicants. Licenses and certifications will be verified.

This position is partially grant-funded and therefore contractual. The contract period will end in June 30, 2019. If grant funding is renewed, the county will consider contract renewal at that time. The position is classified as an essential employee and may include working nights and weekends to support special events or emergency situations.
