So what about what is going on with COVID-19?

Currently, Vault's corporate offices are open, with an optional remote from home policy in effect. However, most our clients are still working remotely. Typically, this position does require being on-site at the clients offices. However, each client does have different policies happening, with many extending their work from home through 2021 (but not all). 

Do we offer full-time remote work? We are open to consieration to those applicants who are not in the immediate D.C. area. So do not let location get in the way of applying. However, there would be potential expectations to come to our D.C. (Tyson's) Headquarters for occasional meetings and training/events.

The Legal Stuff:

We are an EEO employer. We do not discriminate based on any legal protected classes (federal or state) and encourage all qualified candidates to apply. We do conduct pre-employment background checks.  If you ever have questions about an open position, concerns or need additional information, please reach out to careers@vaultconsulting.com.
