Jefferies has guided his team to victories over local rivals Raith Rovers, Dumbarton, Livingston and Hamilton.
The 61-year-old, who won his first award in the Division with Falkirk over 20 years ago, praised his players for their part in his successes.
"I have not managed in the First Division for a long time but I am delighted to win this and I called the players together before I came over to Hampden to pick it up to thank them for their help," Jefferies said.
"They and the backroom staff have all contributed to a good month for the club.
"Hopefully, it is the first of many as if I am picking up awards the team must be doing well."
