  • USAF opens hiring for Space Force positions
  • Positions start at GS-12 and above
  • Hiring is not open to public
  • Only ex-feds, military veterans, fed family members or military members working overseas are allowed
  • Program Analysts and Human Resource Specialists are in demand
  • Employees must have and maintain top secret clearances 

The Air Force posted civilian positions on the federal hiring website for the newly-established Space Force headquarters.

The positions for the military’s newest space-focused start at GS-12 and above and are not open to the public, so it means that the air force plans to hire current and former federal employees, military veterans and family members of feds or military members serving overseas while some of the positions are already reserved current feds working for the air force, Federal Times reported.


Thirteen of the open positions call for program analysts to help set operational priorities for the new force, so feds with program analyst expertise are more than likely to be hired.

The next sought after positions are for Human Resource Specialists to plan for future hiring, training and work force management.

Many of the positions close less than two weeks after posting so the Air Force is expecting a short turnaround.

Interested applicants will have to submit their materials by the end of the month for most of the positions listed.

Most of the positions require employees to have and to maintain secret or top secret clearances.
