Security Clearance Recruiting Firm
Sparks Group is a security clearance recruiting firm that specializes in the recruitment of cleared technical, professional, and administrative candidates.
What is Security Clearance Recruiting?
Security clearance recruiting is a specialized staffing and recruiting service that focuses on identifying and attracting candidates for roles in highly-sensitive areas that require a security clearance. Positions can be located at either a government facility or at a government contractor’s worksite.
Candidates for security clearance jobs must be dually qualified; not only do they need to hold the requisite skills and experience to perform the daily duties of the position, but they also must hold the backgrounds and credentials to gain access to classified information and areas. The recruitment process for cleared candidates can be fast-paced and highly competitive; oftentimes top candidates are already working and/or hold multiple job offers.
Talent Pool Assessment
Government data shows the talent pool for cleared candidates is both limited and shrinking, thus making cleared positions increasingly harder to recruit for. According to the FY17 Annual Report on Security Clearance Determinations from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, between 2016 and 2017 the number of candidates who were investigated and adjudicated favorably decreased by 1.2 percent. The report also notes that the number of denials (+0.5%) and revocations (+0.6%) for clearance also increased during that time period.
