Multiemployer Trust and its affiliated business entities seek an experienced benefits professional to serve as its next Program Director.  The Trust was established in 1950 to provide health and welfare benefits to collectively bargained working families in the metal trades industry.  As the healthcare landscape changed over the years, the Trust has balanced responsible management with innovation and vision.

The Program Director will report to and work closely with the Director of Operations on strategy, administration, compliance, and fiscal management of the Trust and related entities.  The Program Director will be involved with multiple Boards of Directors and Boards of Trustees, which have regular meetings and communication requirements.  The Program Director will also serve as a primary contact with subscribing companies, the labor community and professional advisors.

The Program Director will support the design, implementation and management of program development, growth initiatives, vendor services and legal and regulatory compliance.  Jointly, Directors will develop policies and procedures, prepare and review correspondence, documentation and plan materials. 

Openness and collaboration are fundamental to the success of these affiliated entities.  As a member of the management team, the Program Director will be involved with staff and facilities management and development, as well as, financial oversight and strategic planning for all entities.

The Program Director's role is vital to building alliances and fostering relationships both internally and externally; stellar written and oral communication skills are a must.  Comfort with public speaking and networking is essential; a love of writing and the ability to explain complex concepts are necessary for success.

The ideal candidate will have a bachelor's degree (advanced degree and/or CEBS preferred) and 10+ years of demonstrated expertise in employee benefit plans, specifically health and welfare benefits and defined benefit pension plans.  Candidate must possess the ability to read, understand and apply rules and legal frameworks for a range of compliance issues.  Candidate must have proven leadership skills and a firm belief in teamwork and inclusiveness.  Candidate must be analytical, detail oriented, and an organized problem solver.  Proficiency in Microsoft office applications, other software systems, and standard office equipment is preferred.  Intimate office environment requires a flexible team player, a sense of humor and a willingness to leave ego at the door.
