Resident Advisor (MoDA) opportunities
What are types of deployments?
Most deployments are Temporary Change of Station (TCS), for no longer than 30-months. There are a limited number of TDY deployments. We now have some Term Hire positions, so look in USA Jobs for those postings (in planning for Georgia, Qatar, Kuwait).
Do you pay my salary?
No, we reimburse your parent organization for a back fill once you deploy, if requested by your agency.
How does my organization get paid for a backfill and my premium pay (entitlements)?
With our assistance your organization completes a GT&C FS-7600 to start any pay updates.
You need an active, non-expired government travel credit card.
You’ll need an active DTS profile/account (staying with your home station for timecard/HR (secondment), your DTS is cross-org’d to us for funding) A secondment (sometimes referred to as a “job rotation”) is a chance to temporarily work on a different team within your organization, or in some cases, for a different organization entirely.
Where is and are dates of training?
Strategic Advisor Training, conducted by DSCU, occurs at Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, Indiana, three times a year. This training is three weeks long and typically followed by three weeks of Country Mission Studies, in D.C. (virtually at this time) once an Advisor Candidate is assigned a deployment mission.
Can I be promoted for this deployment?
Is the tour accompanied?
In most cases the 24-month assignments can be accompanied, and in most cases pets can be with you as well. Our team works with the US Embassy.
Our team works with US Embassy personnel to identify the latest on child education capabilities as these vary by country. The program pays for your child’s education at a DoDEA accredited
school or DoD School. Please visit Department of Defense Education Activity.
