PLEASE NOTE: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Senior Executive Service (SES) Candidate Development Program, originally announced under vacancy announcement NRC/SESCDP-2013-0001, has been reissued under vacancy announcement NRC/SESCDP-2013-0002 to:
1. Revise the Geographical Mobility information in the program announcement to clarify that mobility is primarily focused on candidates in technical disciplines (engineering/scientific disciplines, nuclear security, etc), although opportunities may arise for corporate and legal candidates. Most NRC executive opportunities for corporate and legal disciplines will be in NRC Headquarters. NRC will need executives in technical disciplines in each of its Regions as well as Headquarters.
2. Correct technical difficulties associated with answering online vacancy questions related to applicant disciplines and mobility.
Applicants who previously applied under vacancy announcement NRC/SESCDP-2013-0001 remain in consideration and do not need to reapply under vacancy announcement NRC/SESCDP-2013-0002 unless you wish to update your application before the November 30, 2012, application deadline.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is sponsoring a Senior Executive Service (SES) Candidate Development Program (CDP) which is targeted to begin in September 2013. The SES Candidate Development Program prepares individuals who have demonstrated executive potential for senior leadership positions at the NRC. Participants in the program engage in developmental assignments and formal training activities to enhance their executive competencies and to increase their awareness of public policy, programs, and issues. The program promotes the development of a Government-wide, as well as an agency-wide, corporate SES culture through exposure to ideas and concepts across Government, and ensures that NRC has a sufficient pool of well qualified and diverse candidates to meet present and future executive needs.
Candidates who successfully complete the program and receive certification of their executive qualifications by an Office of Personnel Management Qualifications Review Board under the criterion of 5 U.S.C. 3393(c)(2)(B) will be eligible for noncompetitive appointment to the SES. Participation in the program does not guarantee placement in an SES position.
The NRC's SES Candidate Development Program prepares executives for SES positions in the following locations upon completion of the program:
Headquarters: Rockville, Maryland
Region I: King of Prussia, Pennsylvania
Region II: Atlanta, Georgia
Region III: Lisle, Illinois
Region IV: Arlington, Texas
Target Program Dates:
