Seguridad Corporativa y Protección del Patrimonio

Estados Unidos selecciona jefes de seguridad con formación integral para los 429 aeropuertos del país

Estos profesionales deberán responsabilizarse de planes de gestión de crisis, personas, aviones, mercancías y redes de datos

 

El Gobierno de Estados Unidos ha puesto en marcha un nuevo método de selección de los jefes de seguridad de los aeropuertos del país, para lo que ha creado un nuevo organismo oficial, la Transport Security Administration (TSA), en dependencia del Ministerio de Transporte. El objetivo es encontrar a profesionales capaces de velar por la seguridad integral de un aeropuerto, para prevenir crisis como la provocada por los atentados del pasado 11 de septiembre.

De este modo, los profesionales que resulten seleccionados se responsabilizarán de garantizar la seguridad de las personas (viajeros y trabajadores), equipajes, mercancías, redes de datos y su recuperación, sistemas de comunicación, los propios aviones y la formación del personal de seguridad del aeropuerto, así como de organizar e implementar los planes de gestión de crisis.

Para realizar este proceso de selección, la TSA ha contratado a la cazatalentos multinacional Korn/Ferry International. En primer lugar, se está procediendo a la selección de los jefes de seguridad para los principales 81 aeropuertos del país, aunque una vez concluida ésta y dentro del presente año, se espera contratar a los restantes jefes de seguridad para el total de 429 aeropuertos existentes en Estados Unidos.

Para facilitar este proceso de selección, se creó una página web, www.dot-tsa.com, en la que se informa de las responsabilidades de los jefes de seguridad y de los requisitos que han de cumplir los aspirantes, entre los que se valora especialmente la experiencia en prevención de crisis, sobre todo en las Fuerzas Armadas o en las agencias nacionales de seguridad. En las primeras cuarenta y ocho horas, esta página recibió más de 2.600 currículos de candidatos.

Los seleccionados serán remunerados con un salario entre 104.000 y 150.000 dólares (entre 120.930 y 174.418 euros).

LOCATION
One of the Nation's 81 Largest Airports

Welcome to the DOT's Transportation Security Administration Federal Security Director recruitment web site!

Federal Security Director/Deputy

 

ANNOUNCEMENT UPDATE (6/5/02): Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has completed its recruitment for many of the 81 executive-level Federal Security Director and Deputy Federal Security Director positions. This recruitment has been focused on the FSD's, and in some cases Deputy FSD's, for the nation's largest and busiest airports and has been open since January 2002. The list at the end of the announcement indicates those positions for which recruitment activity continues as of 6/5/02. All positions are "open until filled."

Individuals interested in being considered for Federal Security Director positions at other airports should review Vacancy Announcement Number TSA-02-1000, posted on www.usajobs.opm.gov
. For a complete list of TSA job opportunities, visit www.tsa.gov . Follow the instructions on a given announcement to apply for a position with TSA.

ANNOUNCEMENT UPDATE (4/8/02): This announcement will be used to fill executive-level Federal Security Director (FSD) and, in some cases, Deputy Federal Security Director, positions at the nation's busiest airports.

The Deputy FSD will assist the FSD in meeting the full range of position responsibilities described below. The information in this announcement, including qualification requirements, selection criteria, and compensation is identical for covered FSD and Deputy FSD positions. Individuals will automatically be considered for both FSD and Deputy FSD positions in a given location unless they indicate differently.

POSITION RESPONSIBILITIES
Reporting to the Under Secretary of Transportation for Security or his designate, the Federal Security Director (FSD) will provide day-to-day operational leadership for the Federal security responsibilities at a large U.S. airport. The FSD will be the ranking TSA authority responsible for the leadership and coordination of TSA security activities within the airport. These responsibilities and accompanying authority include the tactical planning, execution and operating management for coordinated security services, and other duties as prescribed by the Under Secretary.

The Director will articulate and lead execution of a TSA strategy and "best practices" program designed to meet Federal security responsibilities at the airport.

Specific responsibilities will include, but not be limited to:

  • Organizing and implementing the Federal Security Crisis Management Response Plan, which will include coordination with airport and airline management, other Federal, state and local government and law enforcement organizations, and appropriate private sector entities

  • Responsibility for the efficient implementation, performance and enhancement of security and screening standards for airport employees and passengers

  • Direct responsibility and oversight for passenger, baggage and air cargo security screening, and for all TSA personnel

  • Airport security risk assessments

  • Security technology implementation and maintenance within established guidelines

  • Crisis management

  • Data and communications network protection and recovery as it impacts on Federal security responsibilities

  • Employee security awareness training

  • Supervision of Federal law enforcement activity within the purview of TSA

  • Coordination of Federal, state, and local emergency services and law enforcement

  • Management of all TSA resources associated with the airport, including personnel, funds, equipment, and information.

To achieve these objectives, the Director will establish, at his/her airport of responsibility, the organizational structure and management systems required for threat identification, risk management, crisis management, employee accountability, and security of the facility, including all aircraft. The Director must effectively communicate risk, opportunity, and cost to the airport operator and to the Under Secretary of Transportation for Security in a fashion that easily leads to decisions.

The FSD will be the representative of the Under Secretary of Transportation for Security. The individual must be recognized and respected as committed to the secure operations of the facility with an understanding of the needs of each of the many airport constituents, including passengers, employees, airlines, concession operators, and local government. The FSD should be recognized as a valuable resource and "problem solver" embraced by all affected groups.

The Director will be a well rounded and experienced security and crisis management professional who will focus on building a reliable and cost effective crisis prevention, response and management program. The position is charged with protecting airport employees and passengers, sustaining airport operations, and insuring the continued success, protection and integrity of the U.S. air transportation system.

Some, but not all of these responsibilities, will likely be discharged by management of third-party agreements from specialized service organizations, such as security service and equipment providers, other Federal, state and local law enforcement authorities, and specialized security professionals. The position will have oversight planning responsibility for all security risks to the facility.

THE INDIVIDUAL

EDUCATION
Advanced degree and management training are desirable.

EXPERIENCE
The candidate will have had extensive field and executive experience in security and crisis prevention positions. Experience in at least one of the following areas is required for consideration:

  • Law enforcement, operational field intelligence, Federal protective services, aviation security

  • Field experience in professional asset protection, risk detection and classification, risk avoidance and event recovery

  • Senior level experience in management of highly-measured and complex field operations

Mid-career experience in crisis planning, recovery management, diversified asset protection management, and global safety and security risk mapping is also desired. Specific experience may include managed intelligence gathering and processing, executive protection and asset loss prevention. Prior employment will likely include government or military training and experience, as well as experience in anti-terrorism, aviation security, industrial security, or law enforcement.

The candidate must have demonstrated strategic leadership and the ability to rapidly drive sustained security and response capabilities while managing direct expenses. He/she will be a high energy self-starter with meaningful ambition to achieve personal growth and to demonstrate world-class security leadership. The candidate should be currently on a "growth path" within his or her own organization, and have already successfully held a senior management position which included specific accountability for personnel, operational results and manpower.

The FSD is the senior security professional accountable for the Federal security responsibilities of the airport, staff, passengers, and equipment. At times of crisis, the Director may be required to exercise the authority of the Secretary of Transportation, and effectively close and seal the airport, pending resolution of the event or crisis. At times, this decision may be required of the FSD without the benefit of consultation with others, requiring the FSD to have clear and decisive judgment, strength of convictions, and the experience to make life-impacting decisions.

PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS
Adaptability and the ability to work effectively with a wide range of people will be critical factors for the successful candidate. In addition, he/she must demonstrate the ability to establish and lead a highly motivated team and become immediately productive and make valuable contributions by bringing the organization's current plans and assets to immediate parity with potential risks. In a crisis situation, the FSD must be capable of working without relief through the crisis period.

The successful candidate will be a strong leader who is a quick study and understands how to manage a diverse group of field-operating assets with a responsible eye on efficiency and cost accountability. He/She will be a bright, creative, mature executive with excellent communication skills, both oral and written, and will be persuasive and able to influence with a true sense of urgency. In addition, he/she will be a team player with strong interpersonal skills and an ability to drive new concepts and ideas. The candidate must be passionate about and committed to aviation security.

3. The person selected for this position will be required to submit to a urinalysis for illegal drug use prior to appointment unless presently employed in a U.S. Department of Transportation position that requires drug testing. Individuals with confirmed positive test results shall be refused employment. In addition, the person selected for this position will be subject to random drug testing.

4. Individuals selected for TSA Executive Service positions are required to file a financial disclosure statement within 30 days of entry on duty. TSA policy limits certain outside employment with and financial investments in aviation-related companies.
