Office of Attorney Recruitment and Management


Justice is proud of its talented and dynamic workforce, and recognizes that its employees are its most important asset. Justice employees are the vital link that ensures the fair administration of justice for all Americans. The Department is stronger, more credible, and more effective when its workforce includes highly-qualified individuals whose backgrounds reflect our nation’s rich diversity. To this end, Justice strives to recruit and retain a workforce drawn from the broadest segments of society so that it is poised to meet the present and future needs of our Nation.

The Department’s commitment to diversity extends from its highest office. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr.’s commitment to fostering a diverse workforce is clear. He encourages recruitment and retention efforts that lead to creating a dynamic workforce that represents the best and the brightest citizens from every background and community in this country.

The Department strives to ensure that its management practices and organizational culture reflect its commitment to building and maintaining a workplace environment that promotes excellence and creates opportunities for all employees to maximize their potential, fully contribute to the Department’s mission, and serve the Nation. At Justice, diversity extends beyond race and gender. It includes differences in culture, ethnicity, economics, generations, geography, sexual orientation, and includes individuals with disabilities.

We welcome applications from candidates who are interested in positively contributing to Justice, and hope that you will consider joining the dedicated public servants at the Department of Justice.
