Position Description: Our ideal candidate has a driving passion for the work, brings humility to their job and interactions, and understands how their actions affect others. They see the needs and objectives of others and take them into account while achieving their objectives, and they adapt their approach and expectations accordingly.

Our ideal candidate demonstrates resilience to model outward behaviors including seeing people like ourselves, whose goals, objectives, needs, and challenges matter.

Our Policy and Performance Director leads, manages, and has executive responsibility for policy, performance, planning, and evaluation initiatives and efforts within the Office of Policy, Planning, and Evaluation (OPPE) that are either cross agency or OPPE led. This position leads a high functioning team to accomplish this work and works closely with the OPPE leadership team and other agency leaders as well as partners and community members. Our Policy and Performance Director directs and ensures that key initiatives are well researched, supported and in alignment with agency priorities. The person holding this position will have strong skills leading a team and managing and developing high priority projects in a dynamic environment.

The Office of Policy, Planning, and Evaluation (OPPE) strive to improve health through policy development, implementation, and evaluation. The principles of health equity, engagement, and innovation guide our work. We convene, lead, and support efforts internally to the agency and externally with Tribes, partners, and others at the local, state, and federal level in alignment with agency, Governor, and community-influenced priorities. Policy research, design, and advancement are integral to our work.

When we talk to our Policy and Performance Director about their values, they’ll see themselves in words like Human-Centered, Partnership, Equity, and Excellence. They’ll also see in these words a challenge to improve—personally and organizationally—in pursuit of a better impact on people and better business outcomes.

When we ask others about them, they'll describe a person of remarkable capability, diligence, and focus. They'll tell us about someone who:

Sees and understands the objectives and challenges of people they work with and people they impact. Makes adjustments to what they're doing based on what they learn. Holds themselves accountable for actually helping those around them succeed, as well as achieving their own business results.

It takes personal courage, tenacity, and humility to achieve big things in this way. Our ideal candidate probably wonders whether they're up to this challenge. But they want to take it on because they're hungry for personal growth and hungry to help build this kind of business, team, and workplace culture at the Department of Health.

The incumbent may be located anywhere within the State of Washington. Telework (mobile work) is currently expected. When approved, the incumbent will work with their supervisor to identify an appropriate work schedule and balance including telework and reporting to the Tumwater, WA duty station for work activities as needed.

Qualifications: The DESIRED candidate profile:

NOTE: All relevant experience including lived, volunteer, or professional, or a combination of experience and education that demonstrate the ability to perform the work will be considered.

Option 1: Seven (7) or more years of experience in organizational performance, public health, and public policy.

Option 2: A Bachelor’s degree; AND three (3) or more years of experience in organizational performance, public health, and public policy.

Option 3: A Master’s degree or higher in public health, public policy, or a closely allied field.

As well as demonstrated experience in the following leadership competencies:

Start with mindset – Turn your mindset outward by seeing the humanity in others. Be the change – Change your mindset regardless of whether others change theirs. Be fully capable – Own your work, plans, actions, and impact. Position others to own theirs. Build relationships – Eliminate the unnecessary distinctions that create distance between yourself and others. Rethink systems and processes to turn them outward – Create an environment that energizes people rather than manages objects. Measure results – Move yourself and your teams to achieve collective goals.

Organization Description: About the Department of Health

The Washington State Department of Health's (DOH) vision is equity and optimal health for all. Our mission is to work with others to protect and improve the health of all people in Washington state.

Our Values

Good organizations know what they do and how they do it. Great organizations also understand why they do it. Our values are:

Human-centered: We see others as people who matter like we do and take into account their needs, challenges, contributions, and objectives. Equity: We are committed to fairness and justice to ensure access to services, programs, opportunities, and information for all. Collaboration: We seek partnership and collaboration to maximize our collective impact. We cannot achieve our vision alone. Seven Generations: Inspired by Native American culture, we seek wisdom from those who came before us to ensure our current work protects those who will come after us. Excellence: We strive to demonstrate best practices, high performance, and compelling value in our work every day. The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) acknowledges that our locations statewide are on the homelands of Native people, who have lived in this region from time immemorial. Currently, within the boundaries of Washington State, there are 36 tribes, 29 of which are federally recognized, that share traditional homelands and waterways in what is now Washington State. Some of these are nations and confederacies that represent multiple tribes or bands. We express our most profound respect for and gratitude toward these original and current caretakers of the region. As a public health agency, we acknowledge our responsibility to establish and maintain relationships with these tribes and Native peoples, in support of tribal sovereignty and the inclusion of their voices in public health programs and policies. We pledge that these relationships will consist of mutual trust, respect, and reciprocity.
