The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is the public health regulatory agency in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Our mission is to protect consumers by ensuring that the commercial supply of meat, poultry, and egg products moving in interstate commerce or exported to other countries is safe, wholesome and correctly labeled and packaged.
JOIN A GREAT FSIS TEAM! This is an excellent opportunity for those seeking to join the next generation of leaders in a position directly involved in litigation. In this position, you will have visibility and a presence as a key participant in USDA-wide litigation matters.
Non-Federal candidates with three or more years of active duty military service and disabled veterans can apply to both the case exam announcement and to this announcement.
This position is covered by the Public Health Human Resources (PHHRS) Demonstration Project. Effective July 19, 2009, FSIS began operating under the PHHRS, a Pay Banding and Pay for Performance Demonstration Project, in which non-bargaining unit positions will be classified by career path, occupational series, and pay bands rather than the traditional General Schedule (GS) grades in the Federal Service. The AP-5 pay band is equivalent to the GS-14 level. PHHRS will offer flexibility to offer exceptional candidates higher salaries than most other Federal agencies. Additionally, employees will be eligible to receive an annual pay increase based upon performance. For more information on PHHRS, including information on its pay tables and how it will benefit employees, please visit: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Careers/PHHRS_Demo_Project/index.asp.
This position will be located in the Investigation, Enforcement and Audit (OIEA), Enforcement and Litigation Division, Hearings and Appeals Branch.
If you are found to be one of the best-qualified candidates or a non-competitive referral and will be referred to the selecting official for job consideration, you may be asked to develop a written response to narrative/essay type questions in the second round of the application process. If this applies to you, you will be contacted by an agency representative.
