Leidos has multiple Targeting Officer positions in Northern Virginia. Candidates must have or be able to obtain a TS/SCI clearance with polygraph examination and be willing to work a rotating 24/7 shift schedule, to include weekends and holidays.
Targeting Officers are responsible for guiding and monitoring the execution of collection operations and integrating that collection into a cohesive intelligence narrative. That narrative, incorporating highly complex and specialized multi-INT information, must be communicated regularly to a wide audience of stakeholders, in written form and verbally in both formal and ad-hoc briefings. Throughout this process, Targeting Officers must be able to identify gaps in information and take pro-active steps to address those gaps.
Key skills for success include the ability to work collaboratively in a team environment, often under stress. Targeting Officers must be able to think critically and communicate highly complex information accurately, clearly, and in the proper context of a larger effort. Candidates should be comfortable and familiar with drafting and disseminating written RFIs. The ability to confidently and clearly deliver concise briefings is a key skill for Targeting Officers.
Education and Experience: Bachelor’s degree (substitute 4 years equivalent formal military training or work experience in lieu of degree) and at least 4-8 years of full-time professional experience. Candidates with a Master’s degree are highly desirable with 2-6 years experience. Previous intelligence experience is preferred, but not required.
The Leidos pay range for this job level is a general guideline only and not a guarantee of compensation or salary. Additional factors considered in extending an offer include (but are not limited to) responsibilities of the job, education, experience, knowledge, skills, and abilities, as well as internal equity, alignment with market data, applicable bargaining agreement (if any), or other law.
