The Client Services Program Manager provides direct client support, collaborates and supervises client services volunteers, and works with other community and government organizations to serve our clients. In addition, the Client Services Program Manager will work with staff leadership to improve our program tracking mechanisms, so that we can better understand and report on our impact on client outcomes.
Working with clients at the IFCB involves direct support, as well as connecting people to outside resources when possible. Whether our clients need help securing a replacement ID to apply for a job, assistance with applying for benefits, or a referral for housing, IFCB works to connect them with the resources they need. Because the Client Services Program Manager is the primary point of contact for these clients, relationship building is key.
Work is performed primarily in an office setting requiring sitting for extended periods, computer interfacing, attending meetings, and significant interaction with members of the public.
Position hours will be a combination of three day shifts (8 AM – 4:30 PM) and two afternoon/evening shifts (11 AM – 7:30 PM), Monday-Friday. This position also requires some flexibility for evening and weekend outreach hours, on a limited basis.
This position is an important part of a small, dynamic staff at Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank and may occasionally require working in the building on general operations, including receiving and distributing food, leading volunteer teams, and assisting with special programs.
