The Navy and Marine Corps maintain, train, and equip a combat-ready force that is able to deploy quickly, anywhere around the world, to fight wars, deter aggression, and safeguard freedom of the seas. A vital mission, and one that requires the skill, experience, talent, and creativity of more than 190,000 civilian employees to make it happen. We call it our Total Naval Force. It is unlike any other in the world and for one fundamental reason—our people.
The Navy and Marine Corps civilian workforce is mission-focused, highly skilled, and diverse, and helps ensure we continue to strengthen our naval capabilities both right now and in the future. Our people genuinely like the work they do and, quite simply, they find the Navy and Marine Corps a great place to work. We think you’ll agree.
“We ensure that the right people are in the right place at the right time to support the mission of the Department of the Navy.” — Patricia C. Adams, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Civilian Human Resources)
