NCS is seeking candidates fluent in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, Dari, Korean, Pashto, Persian/Farsi and Russian. Performing a critical and dynamic function within the National Clandestine Service (NCS), the Language Officer applies advanced foreign language skills, experience, and expertise to provide high-quality translation, interpretation, and language-related support for a variety of NCS clandestine operations.

Minimum requirements include a bachelor's degree, native or near-native fluency in a foreign language (Arabic, Dari, Korean, Pashto, Persian/Farsi and Russian), and a strong interest in international affairs. Candidates must possess sound English language writing and oral skills and good interpersonal and communications skills.

All applicants must successfully complete a language test, a thorough medical and psychological evaluation, a polygraph interview and an extensive background investigation. U.S. citizenship is a requirement. To be considered suitable for Agency employment, applicants must generally not have used illegal drugs within the last twelve months. The issue of illegal drug use prior to twelve months ago is carefully evaluated during the medical and security processing.

Important Notice: Knowledge by non-Agency personnel of your association with the Central Intelligence Agency or the Intelligence Community may limit your ability to perform or preclude you from certain assignments. NCS applicants should therefore endeavor to protect the fact that they have applied and/or are thinking of applying to the NCS. We urge your discretion throughout the entire hiring process to ensure maximum flexibility for your potential NCS career. Further guidance will be provided as competitive applicants move through the hiring steps.
