VIEW JOBS 7/21/2018 12:00:00 AM 2018-10-19T00:00 Northrop Grumman has an immediate opening for a Joint Cross-functional Analyst Trainer in support of the Joint Staff J7, Deployable Training Division (DTD) in Suffolk, Virginia. This position requires a Secret clearance to start, ultimately a Top Secret/SCI clearance and extensive travel as a member of Deployable Training Teams (DTTs). We are seeking Analyst/Trainers with primary focus on operational planning and assessment, lethal and non-lethal fires and effects and information operations, and command and control. The DTD assists Combatant Commanders, Joint Task Force Commanders, and other Joint Force commanders with readiness and training by providing joint matters education and training focused at the operational and strategic levels of war. This is accomplished through participation in joint and multi-national training, exercises, and operational staff assist visits. The DTD training support to joint headquarters includes individual, staff, and unit collective training, academic seminars, senior leader seminars, planning exercises, table-top exercises, and functional workshops. This support culminates in the execution of joint mission rehearsals, command post exercises, and other collective training events. DTD training is grounded in joint doctrine, but is focused primarily on the sharing of joint insights and best practices. During an event, DTTs, consisting of active duty and government civilian Observer Trainers and contract Analyst Trainers, provide over-the-shoulder training with joint commands to enhance readiness. Additionally, DTTs collect and analyze observations used to provide feedback to the commander and staff in the form of functional-level feedback, facilitated after-action reviews, and commander's summary reports. T he DTD also utilizes the Continuum of Learning (CoL) approach to support individual and staff training. This approach allows the DTD to provide tailored and distributed individual training for key objectives and competencies, augmented through focused staff-training events using staff-training tools. Support to the CoL includes the development of training and educationally-focused research design, training outcomes, and measurement and assessment of live and virtual blended training and learning environments. Another key to DTD operations is executive-level support to National Defense University's Senior Leader Education (SLE) program, which includes Pinnacle as well as the Chairman's Capstone and Keystone programs. An essential part of the DTD mission is product development in support of the Joint Lessons Learned Program through the Joint Lessons Learned Information System or other programs of record.
