Operational C4 Plans Analyst

The Challenge: 
In an evolving and challenging strategic environment, the military needs visionaries that can understand where an organization needs to go to meet the rapidly changing operational environment now and into the future. What if you could use your analytical skills and operational planning experience to help your client make better informed decisions and develop military plans to overcome the current and future operational challenges?  As an operational command, control, communications, and computer (C4) plans analyst, you can use your operational planning and military communications experience to ensure your client develops thorough and executable planning products and decision-support tools, so they are better prepared to execute command and control to protect our national interest.   
As an operational C4 plans analyst on our team, you’ll be a valuable member of our small local team that works closely with cross-functional planners and experienced technical C4 experts to provide assessment services and valued recommendations on improving C4 operational readiness in the unit’s area of operations. You’ll support staff planning for the development and integration of theater campaign, operations, and contingency planning. You’ll support reviews of crisis and contingency response concepts of operations and help draft functional C4 policies, SOPs, and annexes to component-level contingency plans and steady-state campaign plans. You’ll support component-level participation in combatant command and Service C4 conferences, working groups, and staff processes to align service capabilities and activities with joint and service strategic objectives. Join us as we help our client to meet the needs of its mission.
