Counter-WMD Strategic Planner, Senior

The Challenge:

Do you find yourself constantly looking for more and better information? Do you want a job where you can use your knowledge and research skills to improve national security? Never has the role of a planner been so meaningful. More connected devices, larger storage capacity, and faster connections has resulted in an explosion of available information. The problem facing our government is no longer how to get more data – it’s understanding how to turn the data they have into answers. That’s where you come in. With critical thinking and flexibility, you quickly seek out the accurate data sources, sift through the raw data, and turn it into valuable intelligence and strategic insights. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to support our warfighters and protect our national security.

As a strategic planner on our team, you’ll explore new data sources, create effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources to help your client understand their mission environment. You’ll validate information and apply client tradecraft, as you build assessments for senior policy makers. This is a chance to grow your expertise, develop new skills in intelligence and strategic planning and share insights with others in the community. 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. You will serve as a strategic planner responsible for conducting planning using all-source intelligence analysis concentrated on countering nuclear, biological, and chemical proliferation issues, global countering of nuclear, biological, and chemical proliferation efforts, assisting with providing planning and intelligence support for contingency operations, operational- and strategic-level planning, Joint and multi-lateral training exercises, and strategic engagement policy in various regions. You’ll generate written planning and intelligence products using a wide range of intelligence resources and tools and brief analysis to senior DoD leaders. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our nation’s leaders.
