By BCC To All Chief Human Capital Officers and Deputies:


The Department of Education is searching for a great Chief Human Capital Officer and I would very much like your help. Our CHCO also serves as the Director, Human Capital and Client Services and is a key member of our senior leadership team.  We are seeking current or former career SES or those with noncompetitive appointment eligibility. If you, or someone you know might be a good fit for this opportunity and are interested in exploring it further, please submit a current resume with preferred contact information to Mark Washington, Acting Chief Administrative Officer, Department of Education, at by Friday, February 22.   I’ve included a little more information about this opportunity below.

The Secretary and I believe that improving the support and capacity of our people is a key priority to achieving Education’s incredible mission. The Director/CHCO will have the opportunity and responsibility for stewarding a significant investment of resources to meet this priority; to build a dynamic leadership team; and to infuse Education with the innovation and capabilities to rival the best human capital management programs in the federal government.

The Director/CHCO is the ranking authority responsible for setting and coordinating the Department’s strategy to recruit, engage, develop and retain a high-performing and diverse workforce. The Director provides leadership and direction in the overall planning, development, coordination, and implementation of a comprehensive program at the Department’s headquarters and 10 regions. In addition, the Director will serve as a strategic advisor, providing counsel to managers throughout the Department.

The ideal candidate must have a proven track record of leading transformational change, a strategic human capital management focus, strong technical background in federal human resources management, expert consulting and stakeholder/relationship management skills, political savvy, and the ability to lead a human capital program and staff of a Cabinet level agency.  An incredible opportunity complete with support, challenge, professional growth and the promise of success awaits the right candidate.  I hope you will seriously consider the chance to make real impact at Education.

Thank you,

Anthony W. Miller

Deputy Secretary
