Exercise Planner and Coordinator

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day in the military. What if you could use your technical expertise to help improve training and readiness? As an exercise planner, you use your specialized functional skills and military expertise to provide the client with the training and evaluation support they need. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to support our warfighters.

As an exercise planner, you’ll help our client manage and support Field Support Team (FST) Mission Readiness Exercises (MRX). Using your comprehensive understanding of military exercise planning and training doctrine, you’ll provide support throughout all phases of each collective training event. You’ll plan, prepare, and perform exercise training and certification functions. This is a chance to grow your expertise and broaden your skillset into areas like training development, Electronic Warfare (EW), and Military Information Operations (IO). We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have resources to learn new skills and tools. Join us as we provide the right training at the right time to support the critical needs of our warfighters.
