FCi Federal has multiple opportunities for Research Analysts to join our team on our Federal Government contract in Winchester, VA.
In this role, you will support our customer’s mission to disseminate information in response to name check requests received from federal agencies, for the purpose of protecting the United States from foreign and domestic threats to national security. Many federal agencies seek background information before bestowing a privilege—whether that privilege is government employment or an appointment, a security clearance, attendance at a White House function, immigration benefits, naturalization, or a visa to visit the United States.
Research Analysts review and analyze potential identifiable documents to determine whether a specific individual has been the subject of or mentioned in any investigation(s), and if so, what information may be disseminated to the requesting agency. Research Analysts also conduct numerous name searches in direct support of the counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and homeland security efforts of our customer.
All Research Analysts attend an on-site, paid, four-week training course which will prepare you to conduct reviews of various databases as well as how to disseminate relevant and requested intelligence in accordance with standard operating procedures.
