The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) today posted for job-seekers its No. 2 position, which is currently being held by TJ Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy is serving in the role of president, which is a new title announced last month (TRDaily, Aug. 17), but the position posted today is that of deputy executive director, even though FirstNet no longer has that position. The salary range is $121,956 to $183,300.00. The posting is open until Oct. 9. The position is a Senior Executive Service position.
Mr. Kennedy was hired at FirstNet as a three-year term employee. The president’s post is a permanent career position, and all permanent jobs must be competed – even if someone is currently serving in the role, FirstNet spokesman Ryan Oremland said last month. “The title in the job advertisement is the internal, government personnel title,” he said today. “The working title for the position is President of FirstNet.”
