Air Force HR is hiring a CIO

help wanted sign

Many CIOs would agree that general management and communication skills are at least as important to the job as hard-core IT chops. For one Air Force position in particular, though, finding a people person is especially important.

The Air Force's headquarters office for manpower, personnel and services is seeking a CIO who will also serve as deputy director for plans and integration. The job includes responsibility for developing the human resources enterprise architecture, portfolio management and governance across some 160 IT systems. Other duties include providing integrated technology and business process solutions for HR requirements.

The job description calls for experience with commercial business processes and HR systems, as well as a demonstrated knowledge of various Air Force and Defense Department commands. The position opened up at the end of April when Bill Marion, a 2015 Federal 100 winner, became the service's deputy CIO. Marion had held the job for roughly a year.

The salary range for this Senior Executive Service position is $148,016 to $170,400. The job is based at Air Force headquarters in the Pentagon, and a top secret security clearance is required.

The Air Force is accepting applications through May 31.
