(CNSNews.com) The IRS is looking to hire a diversity and inclusion specialist, with a minimum salary of $123,758 a year.
The opening for a full-time Supervisory Diversity and Inclusion Specialist at the agencys national headquarters in Washington, D.C. was announced on June 11 and is open until June 24.
The Diversity Specialist will serve as a change agent to provide strategies, solutions, training, tools, resources and thought leadership on diversity and foster inclusion across the workplace and build internal awareness for diversity and inclusion throughout the agency.
Among the day-to-day job duties: Hear and resolve complaints from employees; "effect minor disciplinary measures, such as warnings and reprimands"; and identify developmental and training needs of employees.
The job listing comes amid allegations that the IRS engaged in viewpoint discrimination by singling out conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status ahead of the 2010 and 2012 elections. The IRS subjected some conservative groups to lengthy and intrusive personal questions, which in some cases delayed their tax-exempt status for years.
The diversity specialist job has a salary range of $123,758 to $155,500 a year, plus a very generous benefits package.
The listing describes the specialist as providing expertise to problem-solve, design, and deliver business-unit-wide diversity and inclusion solutions.
At the IRS, you will use your skills in accounting, business, finance, law enforcement, information technology, advocacy and more to help make America stronger, the listing says.
The job listing does not specify a minimum education level, and it says no prior federal experience is required.
It does require at least one year of specialized experience, and the successful applicant will have a "thorough knowledge" of the circumstances associated with diversity and inclusive issues and be able to "deal tactfully and persuasively with agency management, executives, and others to resolve program issues which are often controversial and sensitive in nature..."
The candidate must also understand the views, values, perspectives of diverse demographics including, but not limited to, generations, veterans, virtual and remote employees, mixed-race employees, religions, and internal and external employees.
This knowledge allows the incumbent to apply a broader, more current and more inclusive definition of diversity beyond the traditionally-recognized diversity groups, the job listing says.
On top of the six-figure salary, the IRS says, Our comprehensive benefits are very generous -- helping you to reach your personal goals by supporting your professional growth, health, well-being and your family needs.
Last month, a report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration revealed that the IRS targeted Tea Party groups with names such as patriot in their titles, requiring them to complete lengthy personal questionnaires (often multiple times) and having their nonprofit status delayed, sometimes for more than three years.
Several IRS officials have retired or been placed on administrative leave in light of the scandal, including former IRS commissioner Steven Miller and Lois Lerner, the director of the tax-exempt organizations division, who was placed on paid leave after refusing to resign.
There is no GOP congressional leadership. Boehner is either drunk or sun bathing. A few lone wolves are fighting back, but the rest just let America continue into its descent into third world status.
What jackass said 'Diversity is our strength?'
He was obviously full of defecation or working for the CPUSA.
Wow- I wonder what they were paying BEFORE sequester?
The Diversity industry is another jobs program for otherwise unemployable minorities. Like the post office.
For $5 I will give them the only lesson they really need:
DIVERSITY IS AN OBSTACLE TO OVERCOME, NOT A GOAL TO ACHIEVE
I have yet to talk to an IRS representative in Washington, DC who wasn't black.
Do they maintain Diversity of THOUGHT?
Oh, I’ll apply for that.
Conservatives. I’ll start by hiring more male, conservative agents. They should be Pro-life, be married, and be supportive of their wives who are staying home to home school the kids.
Republicans: 50% + of all new hires should be Republicans. It should only take at least 10 years to balance out the heavily Democrat current work force.
Christians: 50% + should be practicing Christians.
How’s that for a start on diversity?
“Boehner is either drunk or sun bathing.”
....and no Mudslimes.
RESPONSE: Of course the hiree will be a white male American of European ancestry.
Gosh. I’m in the wrong line of work...
If you were a negro, homosexual communist you’d be in like Flynn!
Aemilius Paulus: “Of course the hiree will be a white male American of European ancestry.”
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
You forgot transgendered.
Why does the IRS need all this touchy feely stuff when all they should concern themselves with are numbers.
Why? Good question.
*For the same reason they allowed, or through lack of due oversight, made it possible for the NSA to spy on law-abiding American citizens.
*For the same reason they failed to pursue Fast and Furious when Executive Privilege was (illegally) asserted.
*For the same reason they failed to make Benghazi a campaign issue.
*For the same reason they refuse to demand the Obammunist's actual birth certificate.
*For the same reason they've not retaliated against the Chicoms for stealing our top secret military data.
* For the same reason they've allowed tin pot dictators like Chavez, Kim, and Ahmanutjob ridicule and poke us for years with no response other than meaningless, totally ineffective economic sanctions.
*For the same reason we still have gushing, gaping, unprotected, open borders to the North and South, and unprotected coastlines to the East West, and along the Gulf.
*For the same reason the Keystone XL pipeline hasn't been built.
*For the same reason America's engines are being destroyed by ethanol fuel, the price of which is closing in on $4.00/gallon again, and actual gasoline is next to impossible to find.
*For the same reason we are one step away from full-blown socialized healthcare.
*For the same reason over $1 trillion in porkulus spending failed to fix our dilapidated roads, bridges, and infrastructure.
* For the same reason we're now $17 trillions in debt, with no signs of ever stopping.
Why? Because the Pubbies either have no stomach for a fight, they're afraid of what the media will say about them, and/or they're complicit in the effort to destroy our Republic.
But we'll tromp off to the polls in 2014 and 2016 and vote for them all over again. So why, you ask? Because we keep putting the same slimy jackwagons back in office.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The irs is already majority non-White. Whites do the work and get $h!t on. The irs is one giant welfare agency - they pretend to work and the irs sends them a check in stead of the welfare agency.
another paid ‘zampolit’ in the White hut ?
This job is already bought and paid for. It will go to someone who knows someone.
Does that mean a few conservatives might be hired? LOL - yeah kidding - I know better.
A bureaucracy is bad.
A politicized bureaucracy is worse.
A paramilitary politicized bureaucracy is nuts...
There is no reason in a civilized society why the Deputy Assistant Commissioner of Paperwork should have his own Seal Team Six.
It’s ok....”she” will be a Republican, as they don’t have any there now.
you understandably missed a few :
For the Same reason the ‘ War on Coal ‘ creating massive unemployment and regional financial catastrophe ( EPA, D)
For the same reason that we are supplying weapons to ‘Syrian rebels’ who pledge their allegiance to al Quada and the destruction of Israel and the U.S. (US president)
For the same reason that the president has not be reprimanded for unConstitutionl overreach ( US president )
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
When my Fortune 500 defense contractor did this, it ws only a matter of time before I left. I would someday like to start a small business but I’m wary about all this diversity crap I might have to contend with. god forbid the business ever became successful..between unions, endless regulation and this crap, I don’t know how any ingenuity gets off the ground.
I beleive the problem stems from the ‘same ol , same ol’ leadership in the Republican Party headquarters.
They are listening to losers who have a record of losing !
And the fact that it is (X)______ ‘s turn to run for office of the President is just absurd.
Time for leadership that listens and acts , not token RHINOs.
The purge of losers should start with Karl Rove !
Encourage a free and open party election , rather than being bogged down with ‘who’s turn is it’ .
wku man ~:”.. It starts with us; we’re cutting the throat of our own freedom. “
Time to provide support for ACTION representative candidates in the primaries.
‘If it is to be ,
it starts with me ‘
And here I thought there was a hiring freeze.
You must be black, female and lesbian in order to apply.
Don’t forget kiss ass.
“a broader, more current and more inclusive definition of diversity beyond the traditionally-recognized diversity groups, “
Good, maybe productive caucasians will be considered.
“The Diversity industry is another jobs program for otherwise unemployable minorities. Like the post office.”
Right; could you imagine hiring someone for a Real Job, and somebody submits a resume with “diversity” anywhere in the body?
“The irs is one giant welfare agency - they pretend to work and the irs sends them a check in stead of the welfare agency.”
That’s most gubmint hiring; it is designed to get workfare slobs out of bed while hopefully stopping their reproduction. It’s actually very sad; it maintains a facade of integration/assimilation while causing the exact opposite outcome.
“When my Fortune 500 defense contractor did this, it ws only a matter of time before I left.”
They are all forced to do this (under threat of lawsuit). I used to think status was measured in the business world by titles and salaries; now I realize it is by how far away from these workfare hires you are in your every day tasks.
“Thought leadership”? Violation of which will be thought crimes?
Exactly, it screams of “no Christians should apply” because you know the only “diversity” they’ll tolerate is a left wing view.
Complicity is the correct answer.
female, divorced, dyslexic...
What do you want to bet the person will be a Black, Hispanic, transgendered lesbian who hates the Tea Party? Also a Democrat bundler.
looks like that Diversity Studies degree might have been worth it after all...
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
I’ll take it. I like “diversity” and am “inclusive”. I have a hamburger with ketchup, sometimes also with relish, sometimes potato chips , fried onions, mushrooms, lettuce and tomato on it.
Now if that is not “diversity” and “inclusion”, I’ll become a vegetarian.
Actually I think this is the perfect job for Janet Napolitano. No explanation needed, n’est pas?
The IRS is looking to hire a diversity and inclusion
The motto for Iowa State University used to be “in search of excellence.” They are at least honest, the motto and goal is diversity.
DIVERSITY IS A CODE-WORD for “NON-WHITE.”
Wake up people!!
I like your numbers. It’s only fair.
Wow. A salary like that could inflict upon the recipient a great deal of progressive, self-loathing, anti-capitalist angst.
Is the infliction of such progressive, self-loathing, anti-capitalist angst by an employer something for which the afflicted LIFER/REMF employee can apply to toward disability points?
