Job Description:

Targeting Officer:

Leidos has multiple Targeting Officer positions in Northern Virginia. Candidates must 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.
