Jobs: Translation: NCS Language Officer, Central Intelligence Agency

Editor for this issue: Erin Smith <erinlinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

NCS is seeking candidates fluent in the following languages: Arabic, Dari,
Korean, Pashto, Persian/Farsi and Russian. Performing a critical and
dynamic function within the National Clandestine Service (NCS), the
Language Officer applies advanced foreign language skills, experience, and
expertise to provide high-quality translation, interpretation, and
language-related support for a variety of NCS clandestine operations.

Minimum requirements include a bachelor's degree, native or near-native
fluency in a foreign language (Arabic, Dari, Korean, Pashto, Persian/Farsi
and Russian), and a strong interest in international affairs. Candidates
must possess sound English language writing and oral skills and good
interpersonal and communications skills.

All applicants must successfully complete a language test, a thorough
medical and psychological evaluation, a polygraph interview and an
extensive background investigation. U.S. citizenship is a requirement. To
be considered suitable for Agency employment, applicants must generally not
have used illegal drugs within the last twelve months. The issue of illegal
drug use prior to twelve months ago is carefully evaluated during the
medical and security processing.

Important Notice: Knowledge by non-Agency personnel of your association
with the Central Intelligence Agency or the Intelligence Community may
limit your ability to perform or preclude you from certain assignments. NCS
applicants should therefore endeavor to protect the fact that they have
applied and/or are thinking of applying to the NCS. We urge your discretion
throughout the entire hiring process to ensure maximum flexibility for your
potential NCS career. Further guidance will be provided as competitive
