You are smart, talented, and ambitious. Perfect for our team.

Our greatest asset is a workforce made up of the most qualified and dedicated professionals who work in all areas of our mission: from logistics to contracting and from engineering to the sciences.

Sure, what we do is vital to the Air Force mission, but it’s also very exciting and challenging. That makes AFLCMC a great place to start a career or to invest your professional experience in something far more important than the bottom line.

A civilian acquisition career at AFLCMC can take you in numerous exciting directions. With interesting and challenging professional options at several sites around the country, we have many unique opportunities that will bring out your best.

Experience Matters

Engineers, contract managers, financial specialists, IT professionals, and more—we are always on the lookout for smart and ambitious pros who can step in and make a contribution on day one to our development and life cycle mission doing things that may never have been done before.

Contract Management

AFLCMC contract managers direct all aspects of the acquisition process and critical planning decisions in support of our mission while getting the best value for the taxpayer. Managing $35 billion in assets requires business skills as well as experience with contract oversight, negotiation, and administration.

Finance Management

Financial and budget managers and analysts use solid economic and accounting principles and practices to ensure programs are progressing properly and that business practices comply with federal financial regulations. Not to mention an annual budget approaching $50 billion. So of course these jobs require financial and budget management experience from the private or public sector. 

Logistics Management

AFLCMC logisticians are responsible for providing guidance and support in acquiring, deploying, and planning for all product and service stages. They also investigate and analyze unusual problems or conflicts in the area of product support, as well as formulate studies to ensure plans are completed successfully.

Program Management

Program managers orchestrate the leading-edge systems and technologies at the heart of the AFLCMC mission. They work closely with all of our world-class acquisition professionals (engineers, logistics, contracts, finance, et al) to lead and manage developmental progress on some of the most complex systems in the world. 

Cost Estimating

Cost estimators plan, organize and supervise the varied programs at each of our Air Logistics Complexes and then evaluate performance against standards validating that our sustainment and modernization efforts are efficient and effective, helping ensure compliance with cost, schedule, and performance requirements.

Engineering & Science

Engineers and computer scientists are in abundance at AFLCMC working in aircraft design, computer networks, software, electrical/electronic mechanical specialties, and general engineering. These positions require creative problem-solving skills on critical, real-life projects that define the cutting edge of innovation.

Qualification vs. Eligibility

Like any employer, AFCS expects you to be “qualified” when you apply for a position, but unlike some employers, you must also be “eligible." What’s the difference? It’s actually pretty simple.

“Qualification” is based on education and/or experience. As with any other employer, you will need to have certain educational and/or work experience in order to be qualified for a given position. For example, if you want a job as a doctor, you need to have completed medical school and fulfilled the related requirements. The kinds of background needed are always clearly detailed in the Job Opportunity Announcement listed at AirForce.USAJOBS.gov. Be sure you meet those expectations before you decide to apply.

However, even if you are completely “qualified” for a job, you may not actually be “eligible.” In the Federal jobs environment, “eligibility” refers to Federal regulatory requirements that determine who can apply for specific jobs.

Each AFCS Job Opportunity Announcement will carefully spell out who is eligible to apply in the “Who May Apply” section. Further details on who may apply can be found in the “Other Information” and “How to Apply” sections. It is very important to review these requirements carefully. If you do not meet the requirements listed, you may not apply for the job.

For additional information on this subject please review the “Air Force Civilian Employment Eligibility Guide.”

Step 1: Find the Right Job for You

AFCS jobs are categorized as entry, mid, and senior levels, and are associated with different qualifications and pay grade levels.   And, there are special categories of job opportunities, including jobs for students and recent graduates, veterans, military spouses, and individuals with disabilities. This site provides several ways to help you find the right AFCS job. Use one of our helpful search tools:

Step 2: Read the Job Announcement

Each AFCS position (Job Opportunity Announcement) will provide detailed information about job qualifications, duties, salary, location, benefits, and security requirements. These will help you determine if your interests, education, and professional background make you a candidate who qualifies for the job.

Step 3: Apply for the Job

Follow the instructions in the “How to Apply” section of each Job Opportunity Announcement. Instructions will guide you through the application process, providing you detailed information on the questions that must be addressed, and forms and format that must be used to present your resume and qualifications for the job. Help can be found at USAJOBS.gov.
