Use Your Talent to Secure the Homeland with DHS' Loaned Executive Program

The Department of Homeland Security is offering a new program that invites top executive-level talent from the private sector to share their expertise with the Department to fill some exciting and important roles here at DHS. We call it the Loaned Executive Program.

We're looking to our nation's top executives to partner with us as we strive to solve problems, improve processes, and fully realize our mission. Most loaned executive programs last for six months and come with the option to renew for an additional six-month rotation. While these positions don't draw a government salary, participants in the loaned executive program still draw their regular salary and benefits from their private-sector employer. And by serving as a loaned executive, executives will have an opportunity to make a difference in securing our nation.

Homeland Security is looking for loaned executives to fill the following openings:

  • Senior Advisor for Strategy Development and Implementation in the Department's Office of Strategic Plans: This loaned executive will have the opportunity to advise on the Department's strategic direction and will examine the long-term impact of evolving threats, challenges and trends.
  •  Senior Advisor for Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Planning in the Department's Office of Cybersecurity and Communications: In this position, a loaned executive will help evaluate the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center's capabilities and refine the Department's cybersecurity strategy.

The deadline for applications is March 21, 2011. To apply, please visit our Loaned Executive Program Current Openings page on  Got questions? E-mail
