Air Force Seeks New Cyber & Acquisition Talent for Civilian Workforce

PeopleThe U.S. Air Force looks to hire new employees with skills on technical aspects by the end of 2017 that include 1,400 cyber and 2,200 acquisition workers for the service branch’s civilian service.

The service branch said Thursday it currently employs 27,000 acquisition and 9,500 cyber civilian employees around the world stationed at more than 80 Air Force installations with a majority based in the U.S.

“Our efforts have intensified on these two career fields to increase the pool of talented candidates,” said Mike Brosnan, the Air Force Personnel Center’s workforce planning and talent acquisitions chief.

The Air Force has used hiring events in a push to recruit new talent such as a Nov. 16 event at Los Angeles Air Force Base, where the branch sought to fill more than 350 acquisition vacancies.

The Air Force has also authorized the use of incentives for recruitment, relocation, retention and student loan repayment in support of its recruitment mission in the acquisition career field.
