Fitness and Citizenship: It is the ministry`s policy to obtain drug-free employment, and individuals selected for employment must be tested for drugs that are tested for illicit drug use by the deadline. Employment also depends on the completion and satisfactory evaluation of a background investigation. Congress generally prohibits agencies from employing non-citizens in the United States, with a few exceptions, as provided for in the annual Appropriations Act (see www.usajobs.gov/Help/working-in-government/non-citizens/). According to doj guidelines, only U.S. citizens are eligible for employment with the Executive Office for Immigration Review, the U.S. Fiduciary Offices, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Unless otherwise stated in a particular job posting, the qualification is outside of U.S. citizens who meet the criteria of immigration law and licenses may apply for employment with other Department of Justice organizations. Please note, however, that the appointment of non-U.S. citizens is extremely rare; Such appointments would only be possible if necessary to fulfill the Department`s mandate and would be subject to strict security requirements. Applicants who hold dual citizenship in the United States and another country will be selected on a case-by-case basis. All DOJ employees are subject to a residency requirement. Applicants must have lived in the United States for at least three of the last five years.
The three-year period is cumulative, not necessarily consecutive. Federal or military employees, or relatives of federal or military employees serving abroad, are exempt from this requirement. This is a departmental security requirement, waived only in extreme circumstances and dealt with on a case-by-case basis. As a member of the branch management team, each assistant director assists in the selection of certain branch initiatives and the development of policies.
