As Collection Management Officer for the CIA, you will drive the collection of foreign intelligence and actively manage the two-way dialogue between US intelligence consumers and the Directorate of Operations (DO). You will evaluate the foreign intelligence collected by the DO to ensure the DO is providing US foreign policy and national security decision makers with timely, accurate, clear, and concise reporting in a manner that safeguards sensitive intelligence sources and methods.
Collection Management Officers use a combination of formal training and independent learning to develop and maintain subject matter expertise on current and looming country- and region-specific issues and/or transnational issues such as counterterrorism, counter proliferation, and cyber. This subject matter expertise enables Collection Management Officers to understand intelligence needs and identify clandestine collection opportunities that meet the priority requirements of US foreign intelligence consumers.
Opportunities exist for Collection Management Officers to serve in multi-year assignments overseas or they can spend most or all of their career serving in the Washington, DC area.
All DO officers are hired at an entry level and train as they are expected to work – as one team. DO officers begin their careers spending one to two years learning the foundations of clandestine operational tradecraft via classroom training, practical exercises, and on-the-job experience gained through a series of interim assignments. Following successful completion of the foundational training, each DO officer will transition into advanced training activity to prepare them to serve effectively in their respective career occupational specialty.
Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution (applicants within one year of earning a four-year degree will be considered); there is no preferred major or program of study (degrees from foreign academic institutions are accepted, but you are responsible for obtaining and providing CIA with a credential evaluation from an accredited firm confirming that the foreign degree is the equivalent of a BA/BS and/or MA/MS degree conferred by a US college or university).
GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4-point scale is preferred.
Strong interpersonal and communication skills (verbal and written).
Action- and results-oriented.
Ability to work effectively as part of a team and independently.
Flexibility, adaptability, and commitment to the mission of the CIA and the Directorate of Operations.
