Senior Executive Service (SES)
The SES is comprised of the men and women charged with leading the continuing transformation of our government. Positions in the executive branch are classified above GS-15, and are responsible for executive, managerial, supervisory and/or policy functions.
Senior Level (SL)
The Senior Level (SL) system includes any position that is classifiable above the GS-15 level that does not meet the executive criteria characteristic of the SES nor involve the fundamental research and development responsibilities characteristic of the Scientific/Professional (ST) system.
How to Apply
Candidates can apply directly to a federal agency for a specific SES position, or they may apply for an SES Candidate Development Program, which can lead to eligibility for a career appointment to an SES position without further competition.
