Office of Director of National Intelligence
About Office of Director of National Intelligence:
The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) serves as the head of the Intelligence Community (IC) and is the principal advisor to the President, the National Security Council, and the Homeland Security Council (HSC) for intelligence matters related to national security. Also, the Director oversees and directs the implementation of the National Intelligence Program. The President appoints the DNI and the Principal Deputy Director with the advice and consent of the Senate.
The DNI’s responsibilities, among others, are to lead the IC; oversee the coordination of foreign relationships between elements of the IC and intelligence services of foreign governments; establish requirements and priorities for collection, analysis, production, and dissemination of national intelligence; coordinate reform of security clearance and acquisition processes; achieve auditable financial statements; support legislative, legal and administrative requirements; ensure compliance with statutory and Presidentially-mandated responsibilities; and transform the IC into a unified, collaborative and coordinated enterprise.
Not every person in the Intelligence Community (IC) works out in the field. In fact, for every field personnel we employ, we have a huge network of essential support staff behind the scenes. These men and women analyze information, translate foreign language documents, develop new intelligence technology, design software and hardware, write reports for the president, and more.
Among the 17 agencies that form the IC, we staff offices in all 50 states and all over the world. This means, wherever you live, there may be an opportunity for you in your own back yard.
The paths into an intelligence career are as varied as the jobs themselves.
We hire technology specialists, software and hardware developers, engineers, scientists, security experts, foreign language experts, acquisitions and financial managers, and more. Regardless of your particular skills, if you are interested in an intelligence career, chances are we have a position that would be perfect for you.
The IC is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is fully compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
