Recruitment Incentives: FSIS Public Health Veterinarian

Effective August 19, 2018

Use this information along with the information on How to Apply: FSIS Public Health Veterinarian.

Recruitment Incentives

  • A multi-year recruitment incentive may be available for newly appointed in-plant veterinarians to positions with a full performance level of GS-12, regardless of location.
  • Former employees with at least a 90-day break in service may also be eligible.

Direct-Hire Authority

  • Direct Hire Authority has been granted government-wide for Veterinary Medical Officer positions due to a severe shortage of candidates. This authority permits hiring without regard to certain competitive requirements. Candidates under this announcement are not rated or ranked and individuals are not awarded preference for their status as a veteran. Applicants are still strongly encouraged to provide complete information about their job-related experience and education, as well as provide documentation related to veteran's preference.

Creditable Service for Annual Leave Accrual

  • FSIS offers Creditable Service for Annual Leave Accrual as a recruitment incentive that will allow new employees to receive credit toward their annual leave (vacation) accrual for directly-related work performed either outside the federal government or during active duty in a uniformed service. This incentive is available for all newly-hired Veterinary Medical Officers.

Paid Relocation to First Post of Duty

  • FSIS will pay travel and transportation expenses to the Veterinary Medical Officer’s first post of duty. This incentive is available to new federal appointees in this position and it only includes the actual costs incurred because of the employee's travel and transportation of household goods to the first post of duty.
