In the cleared community we often see countless openings for engineers and analysts, but are you familiar with cleared opportunities for surgeons or photographers? While jobs like these may not appear frequently across your radar, there are many unique positions in the government contracting landscape that require security cleared professionals to get the job done.

If you’re looking for a fascinating opportunity or you’re curious how else you can put your clearance to use, check out our roundup of some of the most interesting cleared job openings currently on ClearedJobs.Net:

1. SCIF Accreditation Security Specialist

Many cleared professionals work in Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs), but did you know those facilities undergo security inspections (similar to the people inside them)? If you’re up to the task, join Advantage SCI as a SCIF Accreditation Security Specialist in Reston, Virginia. You’ll support Government Accrediting Officials in the accreditation and inspection of SCIFs to ensure compliance with applicable DoD and IC policy.

2. Pilot – Staff Engineer

Do you have experience with real-world aircraft and weapon systems…and maybe a little background in engineering too? You won’t be developing software, but you will be working closely with software developers and testers helping them produce a real-world model. ARA Emerald Coast Division, at Eglin AFB, Florida is seeking an experienced Pilot, WSO or CSO to be involved in every step of the application development process, from analyzing the aerodynamic models to testing and troubleshooting the finished product.

3. General Surgeon

Not all surgeons work in places like your local hospital. In fact, some obtain a clearance and head overseas. If you’re a General Surgeon with at least three years of experience, join a medical support services program with SOSi in Iraq. You’ll be responsible for providing preoperative, operative, and post-operative management of patient care in this vital role.

4. Photographer

Get ready to tell the cleared community to say cheese. CACI is looking for a Photographer to join a collaborative and creative environment in Fort Belvoir, Virginia. As a photographer in the Intelligence Community, you’ll provide photography coverage of internal and external events ranging from military promotions, retirements, studio portraits and special events.

5. Licensed Therapist

Leidos is looking for individuals that want to make a difference in the lives of our military service members and their families. You can do so as a Licensed Therapist, supporting Joint Base Lewis-McChord in the state of Washington. If you’re tired of spending long hours completing billing and documentation but still want to utilize your education and experience to help people navigate life’s challenges this is the role for you.
