The Employment Services Director will lead Serco’s service delivery team to implement the next phase of Ontario’s Employment Services Transformation (EST) program.
Background: Current employment programs for Ontario Works and the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) are being integrated into Employment Ontario (EO) to create one system that is easy to access and focussed on helping all job seekers, including those furthest from the labour force and/or those who face systemic barriers, and that better supports local employers. By integrating the three current systems into one strong, more seamless service system, the Ontario government aims to address system gaps, lessen duplication of services and support municipal partners and service providers to deliver better results for people and businesses. Service System Managers (SSMs) are responsible for the planning, design and delivery of employment services and are funded based on achievement of outcomes. SSMs will be selected for nine regional catchment areas in 2021.
Role: As a global provider of citizen services, Serco aims to hire an experienced and accomplished Program Director to lead our EST operations team. The position requires high energy and dynamic interaction with our government customer, our local job training and support service providers, employers, and job seekers.
