Internal Postings: Public Policy Manager and Prevention Manager


We are pleased to announce that two manager position are open for internal applicants:  Public Policy Manager and Prevention Manager.

Here is a summary of the roles—please note that each role has some Austin-area residency requirements, as noted in the attached Job Descriptions.


Public Policy Manager for the Programmatic sub-team. The ideal candidate for this position understands the heart advocates put into their jobs every day, but also sees all of the edges glowing around a family violence program where innovation and trauma-informed service provision can be radiated to better support survivors who seek services. They see that at the core of our movement is the wellness of our workforce, and of survivors, and want to work on efforts that support these goals. They see the dedicated efforts of programs to support survivors as well as the ways the family violence movement needs to grow and change such as areas like racial equity and voluntary services. They understand that systems change requires research, diplomacy, and a unwavering focus on environments that are truly survivor-driven.  As a member of the policy team they will work with staff dedicated at looking at laws and systems with an eye towards change. They will engage in legislative advocacy that both creates huge wins for survivors in our state as well as participating in challenging conversations about how to move forward key policy shifts. They will have supervisory experience and support three talented coordinators on the sub-team who focus on areas from mental health to housing to databases and will consider that support a key part of their job.  While they may not know every part of the Texas Administrative Code yet they are excited to learn it and other laws and codes relevant to family violence service provision. And, through it all they believe systems change is exciting!


Prevention Manager.  The ideal candidate for this position is someone who can support the overall organization in achieving our strategic mission of infusing and centering Prevention in the movement to end gender-based violence.  The candidate will need an expertise in serving diverse individuals, and the experience in engaging communities with culturally competent practices.  The Prevention department is very collaborative in their approach to work, so the candidate must enjoy the spirit of sharing a vision and carrying it out.  The Prevention Manager will have some supervisory experience and be able to provide leadership support to two coordinators, with a focus on team unity and project cohesiveness. Exemplary training and development skills are a must for this role.


To apply for either or both of these positions, please 1) review the attached job description; 2) complete the attached Internal Application; 3) and send it, along with your resume and a cover letter of one page or less, to Roy Rios for the Prevention Manager role; Molly Voyles for the Policy Manager role. 4) Please cc Jay Howard, at jhoward@tcfv.org, on all submissions. 


This position will close for internal applicants on Monday, February 28, 2022 at 5pm.
