With a population of approximately 150,000 and a land area of 15.75 square miles, Alexandria is the seventh largest city in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Alexandria has a charming waterfront and is a unique and historic place to live and work. About one-quarter square miles in the city have been designated as a national or local historic district. We proudly embrace our rich history and seize the endless opportunities that lie ahead. If you are interested in working for the vibrant City of Alexandria, we invite qualified candidates to apply for our Human Services Benefits Program Specialist position. An Overview
The Human Services Benefits Program Specialist performs specialized technical work as an intake eligibility worker and a case reviewer. An employee in this class conducts initial eligibility determinations of individuals and families for public assistance programs and provides quality control by examining cases completed by other eligibility workers for accuracy and uniformity. Work is performed independently in accordance with well established guidelines and standards. Unusual or difficult situations are referred to a supervisor. Work performed is reviewed for accuracy, clarity and completeness. The Human Services Benefits Program Specialist requires the ability to use independent judgment to determine eligibility of individuals and families for assistance, by interpreting law and policy, and by evaluating social and economic factors as they relate to eligibility, without supervisory guidance.
