Jobs: Contingency Special Operations Team, OCONUS

     Blackice Security put this one out, and I figured I would get on the band wagon and put it out as well.  My guess is that there will be a huge requirement for bodies on this contract, and many companies are looking at those numbers and making their moves.

     As for VxL?  I have never heard of them, so job seekers beware.  They have provided a phone number and email, so feel free to contact them if you have questions.  I would also be curious if any of the readership have some input about the company?

     I am not the POC or recruiter for this company, and please follow the directions and links below to apply.  Good luck and let me know how it goes. –Matt

All VxL operations are based on our ‘Contingency Special Operations Team’ (CSOT) support concept, which maximizes operational readiness and scaleability while promoting a sustainable ‘career path’ for our personnel. As such, our team members are not hired for specific programs – rather, they are hired based on the full scope of their capabilities and integrated into the CSOT program where they are able to support any number of requirements.

Currently, we are accepting applications from highly qualified personnel who, while assigned to a CSOT, have the capability and requirements needed to support various training and operational requirements of the WPS Program (formerly WPPS II). *The WPS program in particular is contingent upon award – however, the CSOT positions in general are NOT.
