Position: Senior Coordinator of Field Operations

Office of Local and Regional Health (OLRH)


We seek an experienced program coordinator to work with OLRH in the scaling up of 10 Regional Field Training Hubs (RFTH). The Senior Coordinator for Field Operations will interface with the regional sites and trainers to support the regional field training for the local public health workforce and utilize a systematic vendor process (RFR, contract amendments, reporting, evaluation, etc.) to oversee the development and tracking of the regional training hubs. This position will be a dedicated resource to provide organizational support to the Senior Trainers, the Public Health Excellence (PHE) RFTH hosts, and the regional training staff. The Senior Coordinator will work with the Senior Trainers, OLRH staff and other relevant internal and external stakeholders to ensure the regional trainers are adequately trained to provide competency-based, hands-on training to the local public health workforce. This position will lead the development, oversight, and evaluation of this model to ensure adequate access for the PHE local public health workforce to field training through the 10 Regional Field Training Hubs.

The Office of Local and Regional Health acknowledges the history of structural racism and its impact on health. We are committed to improving the quality of life for all Commonwealth residents while eliminating inequities that impact the lives of communities of color who are disproportionately affected by conditions leading to poor health outcomes.  The Public Health Informatics Specialist will be part of the Office’s vision of implementing strategies that ensure the Office’s work, policies and programs are inclusive and equitable for all.


Our ideal candidate has:

  •      Experience working in or with local health departments
  •      Knowledge of training evaluation, competency assessment methods, and the basic theories and principles of learning and motivation as applied to public employee training
  •      Strong leadership, project management and time management skills
  •      Ability to develop and implement effective strategies to ensure a culture of equity, diversity, collaboration and inclusion
