International Candidates & Opportunities

I am not a U.S. citizen. Can I still work for HII-TSD in the US?

Many positions across Huntington Ingalls Industries may require the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Non-U.S. citizens may not be eligible to obtain a security clearance. The Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO), an agency of the Department of Defense, handles and adjudicates the security clearance process. Security clearance factors include, but are not limited to, allegiance to the U.S., foreign influence, foreign preference, criminal conduct, security violations and drug involvement.  Employment is contingent on other factors, including, but not limited to, background checks and drug screens.

Do you have positions outside of the U.S.?

This site is focused on the positions within Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Technical Solutions division, which is a U.S.-based organization. A small percentage of the roles in this business are based at international locations, typically in support of the U.S. government operations. Any Outside the Contiguous United States (OCONUS) opportunities will be noted in the position location field. 

Does HII-TSD sponsor international candidates for work visas?

It is very rare that Huntington Ingalls Industries will sponsor candidates for work visas. Because of the nature of our business, the vast majority of our positions require a candidate to be either a U.S. citizen or a U.S. person.
