Ethics Division attorneys work closely with the White House Counsel’s Office and the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) in clearing new Presidential appointees in the Senate confirmation process and also provide, in consultation with state bar authorities, guidance on legal ethics and professional responsibility issues. Although the positions will have generalist ethics responsibilities, depending upon staffing needs, the positions may be focused on providing these services to a principal client agency, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). The duty station for the positions may be at the HHS headquarters in Washington, DC, or at an Ethics Division satellite office in Silver Spring, MD.

Candidates must have strong writing, oral, and analytical skills and be adept at working with and advising clients. Knowledge of federal or state government ethics law, professional responsibility rules, political activity restrictions, procurement integrity, or related subjects is preferred, but recent law graduates and other attorneys with a strong interest in the subject matter will be considered. Knowledge of food and drug law, or the legal framework for health and social services programs, will be considered a plus.

Salary currently ranges from $63,091 (Grade 11, Step 1) to $138,136, (Grade 14, Step 10), depending upon experience. This is an open continuous announcement. The first deadline for application packages will be April 10, 2014. Review of applications will begin after this date. All applications received on or before this date will receive first consideration. After this deadline, applications will be considered as needed on a rolling basis until the vacancies are filled.

To be considered, applicants must email to OGCEthicsVacancy@hhs.gov the following items: (1) a cover letter summarizing relevant experience; (2) a résumé; (3) a list of three references; (4) law school transcripts (required only if the applicant has graduated within the last five years); and (5) two writing samples.

Those individuals who are unable to submit materials electronically may send hard copies to Elizabeth J. Fischmann, Deputy Associate General Counsel, Attention: Linda Conte, Operations Specialist, HHS/OGC/Ethics Division, Room 710-E, Hubert H. Humphrey Building, 200 Independence Ave., SW, Washington, DC 20201. These career positions are in the Excepted Service under a Schedule A appointment. Applicants must be U.S. citizens.

If selected, an applicant must submit, prior to appointment, (1) an SF 85P, Questionnaire for Public Trust Positions; (2) a copy of the applicant’s state bar card or a certificate of good standing from all jurisdictions in which the applicant holds an active license to practice law; and (3) within thirty (30) days of entrance on duty, an OGE 450 Confidential Financial Disclosure Form. HHS is an equal opportunity employer and a smoke-free workplace.
