OPM Director Kay Coles James Adds to Capacity of OPM Human Capital Division

Aggressive search for private, non-profit and public sector talent

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director Kay Coles James is bolstering OPM's human capital division by advertising senior human resources professional and human capital officer positions on the websites of national publications, including the Washington Post's website, and currently is the "Featured Job" on the homepage of OPM's USAJOBS website,

"The strategic management of human capital is a major component of President George W. Bush's Management Agenda, so it's our responsibility to seek out, recruit, and hire the talent necessary to support the federal team governmentwide as they continue their push for results," stated James.

Human capital officers serve as liaisons to government agencies, facilitating the effective use of human resource flexibilities. By using effective client relationships and technical expertise, human capital officers assist federal agencies in achieving results for the strategic management of human capital, which support the President's Management Agenda.

"OPM seeks talent from the entire work force -- government, non-profit, corporate and private sectors," James said. "By advertising on national publications' websites, in addition to the USAJOBS website, we will ensure a greater variety of high-quality applicants."

Applications for the General Schedule 13/14 positions will be accepted until close of business January 31, 2005.
