The State of Arizona strives for a work culture that affords employees flexibility, autonomy, and trust. Across our many agencies, boards, commissions, many State employees participate in the State’s Remote Work Program and are able to work remotely in their homes, in offices, and in hoteling spaces. All work, including remote work, should be performed within Arizona, unless an exception is properly authorized in advance.
In this position the ideal candidate will serve as an agency liaison between community behavioral health service providers and the military-connected community to facilitate access to mental health services. This position will provide targeted outreach and support to community partners, Veterans, service members and their families in order to address the serious mental illness (SMI), substance use disorder (SUD), and general mental health needs of the military and Veteran community. This position will maintain positive relationships with community behavioral health service providers and key partners. **TELEWORK/TELECOMMUTING: This position may be as much as 50% home-based TELEWORK and as little as 50% participation in outreach events as assigned, and requires driving on state business with occasional overnight or longer stays.**
By providing the option of part-time remote work schedule, employees enjoy improved work/life balance, report higher job satisfaction, and are more productive. Remote work is a management option and not an employee entitlement or right. An agency may terminate a remote work agreement at its discretion.
