Our mission driven healthtech partner is seeking to add a Michigan based Community Engagement Manager. The CEM's are network builders and problem solvers who sit at the intersection of the two key stakeholder groups: the customers, and the nonprofits, social care providers, and community based organizations (CBOs) who want to work together to serve our communities.
In this role, you’ll partner closely with organizations to ensure they feel supported in their use of the platform, engaging with them on their terms and listening to their needs. You’ll also work closely with the customers to grow and sustain key community partnerships that bring the social care network to life. The customers represent a wide range of helping institutions; health systems, local and state governments, education systems, health insurers, and more.
As a Community Engagement Manager, your role in connecting customers and organizations ensures that those in need and helping professionals can find and connect to local services with dignity and ease.
What You'll Do:
Establish and grow deep, sustainable relationships with nonprofit and other community organizations in a regional area, with the end goal of increasing nonprofit usage of our tools and strengthening local networks of care
Educate and equip key customer contacts to support community engagement efforts.
Manage client and project communications – be a leader driving the community engagement portions of the project plan, working collaboratively with Customer Success Managers and sharing best practices of how customers can mobilize community engagement and build CBO relationships in their communities
Train community based organizations and customer teams on how to use the suite of tools to streamline their work, connect to each other, and support a shared population
Lead the discovery of various CBO workflows and roadblocks, and in conjunction with the Partnerships team, explore potential integrations and partnerships
Advocate for the ongoing needs and goals of CBOs internally – gathering feedback and understanding both how to meet them where they are and also how to help get them where they want to go
Support organizations when issues arise, including technical needs, responding in a timely manner, and working with cross-functional teams to document problem resolution steps and implement solutions
Collaborate with the rest of the Community Engagement team to build a thriving department and foster the overall success of findhelp and the people we serve
What You'll Bring:
Non-profit and/or Government Programs Expert: You understand the ins and outs of programs for individuals in need, and you have a sense for what the motivations and values are for different direct service providing organizations
Empathetic, Good Listener: You recognize that our customers and CBOs have a lot on their plates. You are a good listener, and promoting the platforms is second to understanding how people view and might use the tools in their everyday work. When our product isn’t the right solution, listening will help you understand what’s missing, and will help us make improvements
Consultative Leader: You’re not afraid to make prescriptive recommendations for the good of the project. You can validate questions or concerns while tactfully suggesting solutions. You dig deep to understand your client’s goals and vision, and you always bring your expertise to the table.
Confident, Yet Humble: You’re comfortable introducing yourself to strangers, speaking in front of a group who may or may not initially understand why you are there, and keeping your cool when challenges arise in the moment.
Organized for Speed and Quality: You know how to take rough ideas and build them into flexible, fast, learning-focused processes that can be understood across teams. You think about optimizing your own tasks so that you can make space for new ideas.
Solution-Oriented: When you notice a gap, you can’t help but try to fix it. You not only identify problems, but work from start to finish to resolve them.
Experience You Bring:
BS/BA degree or equivalent
3-5 years’ experience working in or with non-profits and/or government programs
Experience with adult learning techniques and best practices; software training experience a plus
Experience with technology and able to learn new technologies quickly; familiar with SaaS application support requirements
Superior communications skills (presentation, written, and verbal) and demonstrated ability to communicate/present effectively at all levels of the organization including the C-suite
Ability to work with minimal direction to achieve goals
Team player, enjoys working hard, exhibits professionalism, is dedicated to meeting and exceeding expectations
Ability to travel to some customer locations
Interest in social determinants, organizational innovation, social enterprise, healthcare, community organizations, governmental groups
Local knowledge, expertise and network. This role is a remote position, but we’re looking for someone who is based in Michigan and can bring a local lens to the role.
