Job Detail:


U.S. Embassy Dhaka is seeking eligible and qualified applicants for the position of Security Investigator.

NOTE: Due to the high volume of applications received, we will only contact applicants who are being considered. Thank you for your understanding.

The incumbent is under the direct supervision of the Deputy Senior Foreign Service National Investigator (DSFSNI). The incumbent conducts full background suitability investigations on current and prospective employees for all agencies at the U.S. Embassy. The incumbent conducts special investigations as delegated by the DSFSNI and as requested through the Regional Security Office. These investigations are often sensitive or criminal in nature. The incumbent develops and maintains liaison with mid-level police, government officials and security contacts across Bangladesh which includes 64 districts, 7 divisions and 7 metropolitan cities. Incumbent acts as security liaison for VIP visits and in-country Ambassadorial visits as delegated by the DSFSNI. These visits and in-country trips require pre-travel security assessment, route analysis, and coordination with Bangladeshi law enforcement. The FSNI is the lead local security advisor on these trips/visits and provides security analysis and recommendations to the Assistant Regional Security Officer (ARSO). The incumbent is frequently required to represent the Regional Security Office during high level trip planning meetings with the different agencies and sections at post. While traveling with VIPs and the Ambassador, the incumbent frequently transcends the normal mid-level contact threshold and liaises with the highest levels of law enforcement and government officials from each district, coordinating all levels of security and fostering improved relations between the U.S. Mission and the Government of Bangladesh. The incumbent designs and implements security plans for U.S. Embassy hosted events and special projects, frequently with hundreds of guests at challenging venues around Bangladesh. The incumbent assists in the oversight of a 350 member Local Guard Program under the ARSO COR (Contracting Officer Representative). The incumbent coordinates the various Bangladesh law enforcement entities in their deployments around U.S. Government facilities and event venues under the direction of the DSFSNI. Additionally, the incumbent tracks and monitors various open source information outlets for security trends, hot spots and developing security situations which could impact U.S. Government activities and interests in Bangladesh and in the region. The incumbent is one of four FSNIs working under the direct supervision of the DSFSNI.
