Job Description:

The Nuclear Enterprise Assurance (NEA) Division, NA-121.4, has a need for a full-time Assistant Manager to provide management support to the NEA Core Team (i.e., NEA CT AM).  This is a full-time contractor-support position located on-site at the NNSA offices in Albuquerque, NM.  The individual will report to the NEA Division Director.

The NEA Division is responsible for ensuring the Nuclear Security Enterprise (NSE) actively manages adversarial subversion risks to the nuclear weapons stockpile and associated research and development (R&D), design, production, and testing capabilities.  The NEA Division enables risk-managed adoption of leading-edge technologies to meet constantly emerging Nuclear Deterrence requirements and reduce modernization schedules and costs.  The NEA Division maintains a Core Team of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to anticipate threats and proactively advance and evolve the NSE’s assurance posture.

  • Clear capabilities in managing external communications, office management, and information archival.

  • Ability to develop and manage project, meeting, and event schedules, and working in classified and unclassified environments.

  • Experience with administering security processes that ensure security and integrity of classified systems, hardware, and data.

  • Managing a wide range of program support/administrative duties (travel, calendars, correspondence, organization charts/telephone lists) in support of NEA Core Team.

  • Protect integrity, authenticity, and confidentiality of records in accordance with established procedures.

  • Overseeing classified and unclassified document management.

  • Managing facilities support.

  • Administering security procedures for access to controlled areas.

  • Facilitating correspondence and communication including preparing briefings, memos, and correspondence with minimal oversight as well as accurately compose and prepare effective correspondence and reports.

  • Maintaining attention to detail in a multi-project work environment with frequent interruptions.

  • Ability to exercise mature judgment and make independent decisions in accordance with established policies, rules, and procedures.

  • Ability to work in a team environment, interacting with a range of federal and contractor staff and communicating effectively, verbally and in writing.

  • Strong skills in MS Office; Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and SharePoint.


  • Minimum of 5-7 years direct experience with program support/administrative responsibilities, preferably in a Government, DOE, or Military environment, including working in a classified environment and controlling and managing classified matter.

  • Minimum of an Associates or Bachelor's degree in Business, Records Management, Information Technology, or closely related field.

Current DOE Q or DoD Top Secret Security Clearance preferred (ability to obtain and maintain security clearance required)
