Let me start by saying this is not your typical gCaptain job listing but hey, you never know.
Today, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) announced it is seeking to fill two key positions for the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE); a first-ever Environmental Enforcement Officer and a Regulations Development Branch Supervisor.
BOEMRE lists the job descriptions as follows:
The Environmental Enforcement Officer is a new position created during BOEMRE’s re-organization. The individual selected will be responsible for program direction and oversight, developing new approaches to environmental inspection and enforcement and ensuring bureau decisions appropriately apply and enforce relevant laws and regulations including the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act. Duties will include evaluating the effectiveness of environmental monitoring programs and mitigation measures and taking enforcement actions to ensure industry compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
The Regulations Development Branch Supervisor will be responsible for directing the national program for assessing, developing and promulgating regulations relating to oversight of offshore energy development operations. The individual selected will also be responsible for participating in the development of industry standards and incorporating such standards into BSEE regulations.
Of course this begs the question: If you were one of the higher-ups with BOEMRE, what issues would you tackle first?
PS – President Obama’s fiscal year 2012 budget allows a total of 33 new employees with BOEMRE found HERE. If anyone does land one of these gigs, be sure to mention where you found the listing!
