The Department of Justice is committed to addressing the employment and professional development needs of the disability community. To assist overall disability employment efforts, the Department coordinates numerous activities to provide all DOJ Components the opportunity to attract, develop, retain, and accommodate talented individuals from this important community. These activities reflect an understanding of the unique employment needs of Persons with Disabilities, and the appropriate tools and strategies that should be utilized in recruitment, hiring, and development of Persons with Disabilities.
In addition, the Department has developed a well-defined set of goals, objectives, strategies, and measures that will facilitate progress, transparency for results, and renewed commitment to developing a diverse workforce that includes Persons with Disabilities. These goals, objectives, strategies, and measures reflect the Attorney General’s commitment to diversity and inclusion; align directly with the Department’s Human Capital and EEO Strategic Plans; and respond directly to the requirements and objectives of Executive Order 13548 Increasing Federal Employment of Individuals with Disabilities.
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has retained Bender Consulting Services to recruit, screen and direct candidates with disabilities to federal agencies for positions in the areas of accounting, budget analysis, contact representative, contracts, finance, human resources, information technology, administrative support and miscellaneous clerical positions. Successful candidates will be placed on the OPM Shared List of People with Disabilities, a database of resumes currently being accessed by more than 400 agency representatives and available to hiring managers and human resource personnel government-wide. In order to qualify, an applicant must be a U.S. Citizen and eligible for the Schedule A hiring authority.
Positions are available for applicants with disabilities who are early career through senior career levels. This is a great opportunity for college students with disabilities, including graduate students, and experienced career professionals to work for federal agencies. Opportunities are available for applicants in locations throughout the United States.
The Department of Justice Human Resources community recommends that every hiring manager review the Shared List for qualified disabled applicants before posting any vacancy announcement. Applicants from the Shared List who are qualified for a vacant position may be non-competitively hired using the Schedule A hiring authority.
Applicants should submit their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org, and reference “Federal Career Opportunities” in the subject line. For more information, visit the Bender Consulting Services website at www.benderconsult.com.
