Program Recruitment Specialist 

Category Family Support Services  

The Position:
Family Service Agency (FSA) works with families facing complex and difficult issues that often cause families to develop unhealthy relationship strategies and lose their effectiveness as parents. FSA is a recipient of a grant through Health and Human Services (HHS) which provides healthy relationship education and economic stability services. The Program Recruitment Specialist will work collaboratively across Santa Barbara County to engage the community and work to recruit and involve potential program participants, with a particular focus on Spanish speaking men, for our Healthy Marriage and Relationship Stability Program (HMRESP). The Program Recruitment Specialist will build relationships across the county with community members, partner agencies, and other organizations to increase awareness of HMRESP and provide a direct connection to programmed classes. This position will work non-traditional hours and flexible scheduling is available.

We are especially interested in those applicants who have lived experience as a male in the Spanish-speaking community.
Working with those impacted by trauma can be fulfilling and meaningful, yet simultaneously challenging, requiring attention to one’s self-care. FSA strives to be a trauma-informed and resilience-oriented organization, actively identifying and employing methods to support staff to embody a healthy and sustainable balance of care for others and themselves.

Sample Job Duties and Responsibilities:
1. Lead the recruitment process and ensure goals for recruiting new participants for HMRESP are met.
2. Serve as the main information resource for potential program participants and help bridge the gap from interest in class to full participation in the program.
3. Develop and foster relationships with community partners and organization to promote effective referrals to the program.
4. Develop participant recruitment strategies and implement strategies across the county to increase awareness of HMRESP and the benefits of participation.
5. Plan, organize, and execute recruitment events including presentations, information sessions, and more.
6. Participate in community events during traditional and non-traditional business hours to conduct outreach and represent FSA and HMRESP.
7. Act as an ambassador of FSA’s mission and promote HMRESP goals.
8. Participate in the Strengthening the Implementation of Marriage and Relationship Programs (SIMR) federal evaluation and communicate with evaluators.

Position Requirements

Employment Standards:
1. High School Diploma or equivalent is required.
2. Experience establishing and organizing relationships in the community.
3. A strong understanding of the local community and its unique needs.
4. Will speak, read, write, and understand English and Spanish fluently.
5. Strong coordination and team working skills.
6. Excellent communication and presentation skills a must.
7. Comfort in use of social media and other digital media tools a plus.
8. Possess a valid California Driver’s License, proof of vehicle insurance, and reliable transportation to travel throughout Santa Barbara County.

Classification, Hours and Pay Rate:
• This is a full-time position, non-exempt, with benefits. (Benefits include: medical, dental, vision, life insurance, flexible spending accounts and 403(b) retirement plan. Vacation, holiday and sick leave also offered.)
• Pay starts at $20.50/hour, dependent on education and experience.
