Looking For A Challenge?

June 18, 2010

Do you have experience leading oil spill cleanup efforts? Then the federal government has a job for you.

The Interior Department is looking for an "Emergency Oil Spill Response Coordinator" to lead federal officials in cleaning up oil spills. Somehow, the Gulf of Mexico disaster is not mentioned.

The job description, found on federalgovernmentjobs.us, opened a day after President Obama tapped Michael Bromwich to lead the reform efforts at the Minerals Management Service, the embattled agency within the Interior Department that Secretary Salazar split into three agencies following the Gulf oil spill.

 

The pay ranges from just under $75,000 to almost $100,000. Applicants must fill out a questionnaire that takes 30 minutes to complete, according to the posting. It has a series of 20 statements about the job's duties, asking applicants to rank how much experience they have.

The statements include "track oil spill and other needed accident data," "assist in developing testimony" and "plan and manage projects to solve controversial problems related to major incidents."

Requests for a comment from the White House and Interior Department were not immediately returned.

The job posting will be on the Web site until June 30, and it will be another month to month and a half before Interior picks a candidate. By that time, it will be August. With any luck, the cleanup will be winding down just as the successful applicant starts.
