The primary selection criteria for SES positions are executive qualifications with a strong focus on the ability to lead. Senior Executive Service positions are for visionaries and achievers seeking a rewarding and active role in the Federal government. Critical leadership traits are needed at these executive levels in along with technical skills and qualifications in order to succeed. One of the keys to the SES application process is the development of compelling Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs).
The ECQ subjects are :
– Leading Change
– Leading People
– Results Driven
– Business Acumen
– Building Coalitions/Communication
These ECQ statements are designed to highlight and identify active leaders and achievers. In the SES executive role you are expected to make things happen and get results compared to simply managing a process or overseeing a department.
