Reserve applicants being sought for joint jobs


U.S. Transportation Command wants reservists trained in the planning and execution of joint military operations to apply to work at its Joint Planning Support Element, headquartered in Norfolk, Va.

The JPSE has recently expanded following the 2011 disestablishment of U.S. Joint Forces Command and its Standing Joint Force Headquarters and is expecting “an increase in operational tempo,” according to a March 5 press release.

JPSE, which falls under TRANSCOM’s Joint Enabling Capabilities Command or JECC, provides “tailored, ready joint capability packages” aimed at rapidly establishing joint force headquarters. Personnel assigned to JPSE will deploy “to assist joint force commanders in establishing new headquarters for a broad range of missions.”

Once accepted, personnel will be assigned to a specific deployment team and remain on-call to deploy during a pre-defined period. Reserve Component team members will “fully integrate with Active Component members and participate in unit training activities” that support the daily JECC mission.

Roughly 60 of the 180 jobs remain to be filled, according to JECC’s Whitney Williams.
