Supervisory Attorney Advisor, GS 14 The candidate: Manages the field office case load distribution system.

Qualification and Experience

The candidate must have completed a full course of study in a school of law accredited by the American Bar Association through which you have attained the first professional law degree, i.e. LLB, or J.D.

Bar Membership: All attorney positions require current active bar membership. Admission to the bar of any State, territory, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, District of Columbia, or Federal Court is acceptable. Employees must maintain active bar membership while employed as an attorney with HHS/OMHA.

Grade Specific Qualifications: Must have 3+ years of professional legal experience after admission to the bar with one year commensurate to the GS-13 grade level in the Federal service.

Documenting experience: In accordance with Office of Personnel Management policy, federal employees are assumed to have gained experience by performing duties and responsibilities appropriate for their official series and grade level as described in their position description. Experience that would not normally be part of the employee's position is creditable, however, when documented by satisfactory evidence, such as a signed memorandum from the employee's supervisor or an SF-50 or SF-52 documenting an official detail or other official assignment. The documentation must indicate whether the duties were performed full time or, if part time, the "percentage of times" the other duties were performed. It is expected that this documentation is included in the employee's official personnel record. In order to receive credit for experience in your resume that is not within the official series and grade level of your official position, you must provide a copy of the appropriate documentation of such experience as indicated above.

Application deadline: 06/14/2018.
