Overview

Are you looking for a change in your career? Have you ever thought that something is missing within your career? Where has your practice lead you? Do you need a new aspiration and drive?

If you have answered yes to some of the above and are thinking on some of the above questions, then we may have the RIGHT OPPORTUNITY for you!!!!

 

Background:

This position is located at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.

The original arsenal combined two adjoining arsenals into one post in 1941 to make conventional ammunition and toxic chemicals during World War II. First designated the home of Army missiles in 1948, Redstone dropped from a peak WW II employment of more than 19,000 to a little-used post of a few hundred workers.

Because of the large available space, empty buildings, and ease of access to rail, highway, and water traffic, the Army chose Redstone as the place to consolidate its newly formed rocket program. Redstone Arsenal has served for more than 50 years as the Army's center for missile and rocket programs.

The community provides excellent dining, shopping, attractions, historic museums, and a performing art center. This facility provides services to active military service members, their families, and retirees. Civilian employees serve a vital role in supporting the Army mission. They provide the skills that are not readily available in the military, but crucial to support military operations. The Army integrates the talents and skills of its military and civilian members to form a Total Army.
