NOWCC is pleased to announce our partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to establish an Experienced Services Program (ESP) within the agency. With this partnership, experienced workers 55 years of age and over will add capacity to FWS staff on a temporary basis to fill immediate and important needs. The Experienced Services Program addresses the issue of attrition and loss of institutional knowledge as federal workers retire and provides opportunities for newer, less experienced civil servants to learn from more experienced workers. ESP positions are generally part-time and supply professional, technical, operational and administrative assistance to the FWS.
