Journeyman - Full-performance level, expected to work with minimal oversight. Personnel considered competent in their trade with 3 years of greater but less than 10 years of experience. A bachelors degree in a field related to the support service may count for up to four years of experience.
Journeyman should be fully capable of meeting most services without direction and expected to assist apprentice level personnel in learning their trade. Government and/or contractor personnel may perform quality control assurance checks on their work but should not find significant errors.
Journeyman level are expected to collaborate with government and contractor personnel in NGA and the IC in the performance of services. Such collaboration should provide accurate technical information that contributes to analytical synergy that is better than the sum of the individual parts and expected to regularly provide division level support and may periodically be called upon to provide support at the office level.
Demonstrated good oral and written communication skills.Overview
