Exercise Planner, Senior

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day in our military. What if you could use your Joint exercise planner experience and expertise to help our clients integrate joint fires into their joint exercise life cycle? You will work to enhance real-world joint and combined targeting and fires capabilities using your technical, regional, and functional experience. As an Exercise Planner on our team, you will conduct client-directed planning and support to Joint Exercise Program events, develop exercise control design and architecture, facilitate and lead scenario development and execution, and provide post exercise analysis for future joint exercise development. You will supervise and assist with the development of key collateral for joint exercises and assist in development of senior leader table-top exercises. Your expertise will help shape the execution of the event and you will be a key factor in our after-action reporting.

You will also observe test and evaluation field operations and events to ensure that the data collected addresses Measure of Performance and Effectiveness, and maintain responsibility for conducting test planning and scheduling to help our clients prepare for critical exercise events. As an authority on joint forces operations and training, our client will look to you for critical recommendations to expertly train joint and combined forces. This is a chance to define your expertise, develop new skills in joint, combined, and maritime fires, and share your skills with other joint force subject matter experts. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our warfighters.
